Awesome day out, highly recommend

After the bad weather we’ve had I decided surfing might be fun for a day out and it can be done in rain or shine. It did not disappoint. Che and the team were chilled and professional. They made me feel comfortable and confident with what I was doing. They helped me to stand on the board in less than two hours. The guys he has working for him were very helpful and you could tell surfing was a passion; which made them want to be there. I got the experience on a deal but both my friend and I would happily pay full price based on the experience I had. Highly recommend for individuals or groups. Thanks guys :)

Excellent tuition

Che was an excellent instructor. Concepts were explained clearly and tailored to the individual. This isn't just a surf experience but a quality introduction to the foundations of surfing. Te Arai is a stunning beach and the waves were just right for fun learning. Now I just need to go and practice!

Thanks Dean for the awesome review.. Your a big guy and did super well.. definetly go with the 9ft board for this year, youll get up more and have heaps of fun.. remember .. best surfer is the one having the most fun! Appreciate your mention on our coaching.. we teach proper techniques so you 'get it' and get up riding.. Some surf schools offer 'experiences' which doesnt work for surfers wanting to get back out on their own.. focus on theat positioning on the board, hand placement and popup! Dont rush it! Cheers Dean.. come back to Te Arai.. best waves from Auckland to Whangarei on the east coast!
