10/10 would HIGHLY recommend!

Had a blast during my lesson. The instructor is good at giving each person one on one attention so you can actually learn how to catch a wave on your own and learn from your mistakes! Was quite nervous going into it but was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was!

Amazing time with great instructors

Luckily we caught an amazing day at Te arai point beach. Calm but nice waves. Checked in at the surf shop where we checked in and were given details then headed down to the beach where we met the instructors. Wetsuits and everything you needed for surfing were provided which was awesome. Ben was out main instructor along with two others and they were all very kind and helped a lot. Would definitely recommend

A very interesting experience

My daughters surfing experience was very fascinating. My daughters loved the experience a lot. They are waiting to repeat it again. I think we will do it again in few weeks time. In fact, I recommend this activity for a couple of our friends. The team was very professional and they were very friendly and very suportive.

The best surf lesson in NZ

These guys are amazing. I've been to 2 other surf schools and they were nothing like this lesson. Passionate instructors, clear explained instructions. They really coach you through each wave. I didn't even stand up at the other companies. Te Arai is amazing surf beach. Thank you Aotearoa Surf I'm coming next weekend to do it again.
