On this surf camp, you will stay in a base camp located on Surf Highway 45 based on a shared twin room accommodation.


This surf camp caters for surfers who are only in New Zealand for a short period and looking to maximize their water time. Tama Blackburn and Eli MacDonald, as the guides of New Zealand Surfing Adventures, know where to score the best and uncrowded breaks in New Zealand. With over thirty years of combined surf experience, the ability to be mobile, and intimate knowledge of surf and weather conditions, they will make sure you ride the best surf New Zealand has to offer.


Eli MacDonald
Eli MacDonald has surfed competitively from a young age and is very knowledgable about the technicalities of surfing at a high level.
Tama Blackburn
Besides being a surf instructor at New Zealand Surfing Adventures, Tama Blackburn is also a qualified chef. He is just as passionate about food as he is about surfing.


This surf camp will take place in New Zealand. Located in the South Pacific, New Zealand is a magnet for swells. It gets south swells all year round and north swells in the summer months from December to May. The west coast never goes flat and is renowned for being one of the most consistent surfing coastlines in the world.

Surf zones


Marlborough has numerous rocky peninsulas where the southern mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. In these waters, a complex marine ecosystem provides an ideal place for getting ‘up close with nature’. Marlborough’s epic right hand point breaks and river mouths are intensified by deep ocean trenches and tidal upwellings.

Gisborne, East Coast

New Zealand's east coast is famous for its consistent copping full brunt of southerly, easterly, and northerly swells. Due to its remote location and relaxed atmosphere there are many opportunities to score pumping uncrowded waves with just your own crew. Gisborne is home to high quality, powerful, hollow barrelling beach breaks that are comparable to the ones in France and Mexico.


Raglan's surfing breaks on the North Island are New Zealand's most famous surfing spots. They consist of three left hand points that peel mechanically over volcanic reefs and boulders for hundreds of metres. Raglan is consistently surfable in a variety of conditions. The three different points mean a range of options for all levels of surfing ability.


Northland or the ‘winterless north’ is renowned for its beautiful, empty white sand beaches, crystal clear water, and New Zealand’s warmest climate. Northland has one of New Zealand’s best and largest left hand point breaks; Shipwreck Bay or ‘Shippies’ as many call it. Shippies consists of several rock bottom reef breaks stretching over two kilometres. There are also many hollow beach breaks which produce the classic A-frame peaks. These waves are more isolated and unknown to average surfers.

South Island

Even though the population is small, but South Island's huge diversity of breaks will allow you to surf without many crowds. With a swell window of almost 270 degrees, there is always a wave that is firing for everyone. South Island has hollow beach breaks, long mellow sand points, and isolated river mouths.

Piha Beach, Auckland

Piha Beach is a beautiful rugged coastline that offers consistent quality and often very hollow beach breaks. Piha’s black sand beach is set amongst rugged cliffs and dense bush valleys, resulting in an inspiring and magical backdrop to surf. South Piha has a quality left hand bar break which can be very hollow and has long workable walls. While North Piha’s river mouth can produce quality sandbanks with long rippable walls and inside barrel sections, with caves at the far north of the beach that offer tubing peaks.
