The best surf experience

The coaches were very nice and they were really good at teaching us. I really enjoyed it. My first time surfing was so cool, I even stood up on the board lots of times. Harry 10 years old. I want to go back next weekend again!

Great Experience. I'll Be Back.

I had a great time in the water with Aotearoa Surf School. The instructors were super friendly, welcoming and made the whole thing a fun experience. We had a diverse group, ranging in age from under 10 to 40+, with different backgrounds and skills, yet the team managed to ensure everyone was supported at their own individual level. I appreciated getting personal feedback, with some instruction and guidance to help me correct some of the mistakes I was making. Thanks Corne, Lilly and Nils for such a great day. I'll back in the water with Aoteroa Surf School as soon as I can for some ongoing lessons.

Not good for kids

not good for 7 age old kids. Arai waves are suitable for adults to learn beginner courses. Completely not for 7-year-olds. I think they should not teach 7-year-olds here. because they don't teach or take care of them. They not fit for children lesson.
