"I learned how to surf and got some new friends."

The way they teach us how to surf is really good. After one lesson I had enough confidence to ho out of the break water and out to the green waves!

They make you laugh at your mistakes and they all were really good at explaining what to do next.

There were always a good mood, and smiling people.

Breakfast was included so that is nice.

"An awesome time at Whangamata"

I loved the time I spent in Whangamata last week. The Surf n Stay hostel was amazing. The girls at the reception Amanda and Cristal did an awesome job welcoming everyone and making us feel at home. I had 4 surfing lessons with Ronan, Sam and Doug and they were just fantastic!

"Relaxed atmosphere and friendly "

Being a little older, I was unsure whether would I’d “fit in”, but it didn’t take very long at all to feel at home and make some wonderful new friends. There were quite a number of solo travellers, which at first I mistook for being a group of friends because they were all so lovely and welcoming to each other, and then me. But there were also families/groups that stayed in there in the units. I had the single room which gave me a little of the privacy I felt I needed. The other travellers and staff were all so friendly. I felt very relaxed and not at all intimidated when walking alone. It was also nice to have surfing and yoga instructors who were so encouraging and helpful. Not once did I feel embarrassed or self conscious about my less than perfect surfing skills. I can’t wait to go back with my family and friends.

"Can’t wait to come back!"

I loved the whole vibe of the place, really cool people (especially the workers) and perfect location. The surf and yoga lessons were rad and I’m looking forward to returning soon!

"Amazing experience"

I loved how close I was to the beach and the vibe of the backpackers. I am also returning this weekend because I just had such a great time! The instructors were amazing, knowledgeable and patient. The yoga was also really good.

"Great week learning to surf"

The surfing instruction was great. The lessons were a good length to allow for a lot of time surfing, but not too long that you'll be overtired for yoga. The yoga studio was only a 10 min walk away and the classes there were equally well taught.
