Raglan Surfing Experience Packages

Book Now

Want to hang out and really put some time and energy into learning to surf, as well as exploring Raglan, meeting other surf inspired individuals & getting great value for money? If this sounds like you,our surf adventure packages are a great choice because any keen surfer will want to spend more than a day on learning to surf and progressing to the point of been able to catch unbroken green waves! This is something you’ll be stoked you did, because even though catching the whitewash is fun for a while every surfer remembers their first green wave because it’s usually the incredible buzz from this ride that keeps you surfing forever – consider yourself warned!!!

Raglan Surfing School offers 4 types of packages, each of which is available for 2-5 days and able to be started on any day of the week regardless of how many people are booked.

Each package includes these 5 standard features:

  • A half-day beginner surfing lesson on day one with all instruction and equipment
  • Half-day surfboard and wetsuit hire on subsequent day(s). In the summer months our surfboards and wetsuits are available directly from the beach to make getting out there that much quicker & easier
  • Daily beach transport
  • Steaming Scandinavian style sauna back at camp
  • Pickup & drop off in Raglan Township

Our packages differ depending on your need for accommodation, supervision, instruction and time spent in the water surfing. We have 4 packages to choose from depending on your requirements. Upgrades or discounted Raglan adventures can then be added because you have the option of creating your own customised Raglan experience surf package.

Upgrades are available for luxury beach house accommodation in Whale Bay, private lessons if you’re not a beginner surfer or you want to improve your surfing skills with 1 on 1 instruction and extending your half day practice sessions to full days for more time in the water. Various Raglan adventures are also available to add on to your package – often at a special discounted rate.

Usually the days after the initial lesson where we take you to the beach with a surfboard and wetsuit for more surf practice are unsupervised.
We also offer supervised package options on these practice days. These supervised sessions will suit those individuals who are less confident in the ocean because they would feel more comfortable having an instructor close by to keep an eye out for them & to lend a hand if need be.
