    "Hooked! Can't wait to get back out there again. Super knowledgable, enthusiastic, and encouraging instructors. Their teaching techniques for getting up worked better than the ones I'd learned previously."

    "We went to the Karioi lodge as part of a Raglan Surf School tour, which is run by the same team and had a total blast. The lodge is gorgeous and nestled in a stunning bush. Bing our surf instructor was on the ball all afternoon helping us perfect our technique. Kudos to the team!"
