Surf Lessons

Depending on your level we can offer you a wide range of options to choose from. The beautiful volcanic sand Ngarunui beach is the perfect place to learn for beginners looking for small waves as well as for more advanced surfers who are looking for a consistent and high quality swell to improve their skills.

Group Lesson

The group lesson start at the main beach, 5 minutes out off Raglan
We chose to have a maximum ratio of 6 students to 1 instructor, this this means we’re able to offer you plenty of personalised tips.

First, you’ll learn the basics of surfing and surfboard vocabulary, stance, posture and a proper dose of water and beach safety.

You’ll be fully prepared before you hit the surf! You’ll get custom fitted for a wetsuit and surfboard at our Surf Trailer located down on Ngarunui Beach (Believe us, not carrying your equipment up & down the steep beach walkway is a bonus!)
After a quick regroup on the sand you’ll have your instructor right there beside you in the surf ready to help you choose your waves, help line your board up and even push you into waves. Our goal is to have you paddling into waves yourself by the end of the lesson.
