You will stay in a mixed dormitory-style beach lodge accommodation with bedding provided.

Rapu Adventures will pick you up from central Auckland on Sunday morning and transport you to your pre-arranged accommodation. Once you have settled into the accommodation, the group normally heads out and begins the surfing adventure.

Every morning you will wake to the sound of the ocean, an exquisite sun kissed beach with no one around and food provided for a breakfast giving you all the energy you need for your exciting day.

Every evening, after a full day of surfing, you will enjoy a yummy dinner while reminiscing about the waves and watching the sun slowly fades into the ocean. The conditions for the following day will be discussed and everybody will form a game plan together before you hit the sack and rest up for another day of epic waves.

Throughout the week, the certified instructors will cover surfing theory, including surfing rules, surf conditions, rips, currents and tides. Each day, they will individually work with you to slowly and consistently build your skills and advance you to the next level.

Each day, Rapu Adventures will set out on a mission to find the best waves. This could mean driving to a different beach to get you to secluded surf locations or enjoying the surf in Piha. Each day will be different and always an adventure! Some days, if the conditions suit, you could be off for a dawny surf at sunrise. For some, this is regarded as the highlight of their surf tour, being in the water as the sun slowly rises giving the ocean a beautiful orange tinge. This is an unforgettable experience.

During those hours in the day when you are not in the water, there are many other options and fun things to do. Everybody can choose to do something as a group or just enjoy some down time to yourselves whatever will give you the most out of your trip!

One day during the week can be set aside as a rest day and can be used to try out some other activities. Rapu Adventures has teamed up with some other awesome tour operators to arrange discounted prices on activities for you that are usually offered to operators and employees only.

Before you know it, it is the end of the tour and you will not believe how quickly the week has gone by! Your body aches but you cannot stop smiling. You are hooked on surfing. The addiction has begun. But you will squeeze in one last surf session before it is time to leave.

Rapu Adventures will transport you back to Auckland while you relax and reminisce on your week of epic adventure.

  • Review by a traveler from United States

    "Rapu Adventures, unlike other companies I contacted, was willing to give me a 1-day surf lesson despite it being the winter season. Brett sent me an email a few days before the trip, stating that the surf conditions would be ideal for the day I had booked the trip. Brett was a detailed and patient instructor, providing the necessary safety and technical advice for a beginner to surf without getting hurt. We went to an amazing location, where the water temperature was not bad at all considering it was winter, and I was able to receive great instruction, making for a perfect day overall!"

  • Review by Venla J from Finland

    "I did a 5-day surfing tour with Rapu up north to Ahipara. The transportation from Auckland worked out perfectly. It was even arranged for me to join the tour one day later than planned due to a sudden illness. So glad I was still able to join. The tour was perfect! The lodge with the amazing location right on the beach was comfortable to stay in and the 90-mile beach is beautiful and is a great place to surf. The beach and the conditions were perfect for a beginner like me, with sandy beach and nice small waves. There was no crowd, just amazing sunsets! I think what really made the trip though were our great guides, Emily and Liam, who looked after us very well. The food was delicious, the teaching was good and the whole time was fun! I appreciate the effort they put for us to enjoy our trip. I made some great new surfing buddies as well. Highly recommended!"
