Program

  • There are 2 group surf lessons, each lasts 2 hours

Surf N Stay New Zealand will start you in the white water with special boards that will make you stand in no time. Once you get the basics, Surf N Stay New Zealand will guide you through more advance techniques, so you can start surfing on your own.

You may start your day with a delicious continental breakfast in the warm Coromadel sun, take your board and surf the waves at the famous Whanga bar or explore the scenic islands just off the coast on a kayak or on a stand up paddle board.

To ensure your safety, Surf N Stay New Zealand will cover ocean awareness, equipment, and etiquette, just to name some of the topics their instructors will touch base on.

The groups feature a ratio of one instructor to six students. However, if the waves get bigger or the crowds increase, the instructor to student ratio will increase as well. Of course, Surf N Stay wants to avoid big waves and the crowd, so they have a van available and access to several locations ensuring the best conditions for your skill level.

Whangamata is the ideal place to learn to surf because of its sand bottom beaches and user-friendly waves with a beautiful backdrop of Whenuakura and Hauturu.

If you would like to improve your skills a bit faster, Surf N Stay New Zealand recommends you to look into their intensive courses, when you surf twice a day under the guidance of your coach. The more time in the water with your coach, the faster you will improve and more waves you will get.
