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.
