    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!

    Great staff. Awesome time!

    Che was so patient and understanding. I did not have a New Zealand number, so communication was very limited. Che could not reach me so he went to the Te Arai parking lot and waited for an hour just so he could talk to me. I missed the man while he was at the beach, but was able to talk to him at his house. He was willing to reschedule me to a later time in the day without cost. Ben was the instructor and the guy was so chill and diligent in helping me in the group know the basics and what we need to improve on. Super awesome dude! This beach is pretty secluded, far enough from the city but not that bad of a drive. Definitely a good place to get your surf in if you're a beginner.
