  • 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.
  • Start your day with a delicious freshly cooked breakfast within the warm Coromadel sun, take your board and surf the waves at the famous Whanga bar. 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 include 1 instructor to 6 students and if the waves get bigger or the crowds increase, Surf N Stay New Zealand might even do a 1 on 1 ratio, just so you are safe in the water. The camp wants to avoid big waves and the crowd, that’s why they have a van for customers to take you to the best waves of the day.
  • 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.

    "Perfect place for young travellers who want to meet new people. Hostel is very small, so it feels like more home than hostel. Doors of dorms are unlocked but you still feel safety. Everyone spend time together and staff and other travellers are very friendly. Absolutely one of the best hostels where I have stayed!"

    "I checked in. The weather was really stormy and rainy, but there was a friendly, welcoming vibe at the hostel. It's close to the beach and a store is just on the backside of the hostel. I enjoyed my stay, recommend it anytime. Cheers Surf n Stay!"

    "Great location! Only a few meters from the beautiful Whangamata beach. Clean, nice, tidy, and super friendly staff. My stay was excellent. I was fortunate with great weather during one week. I had the chance to watch the sunrise and sunset at the beach almost every day. They also provide great service. Fresh eggs, coffee, and tea for breakfast every day. Fast Wi-Fi, surfboards, SUP, and kayak rental. I had so many memorable events and experiences surfing and kayaking in the islands around Whagamata. I totally recommend Surf N Stay New Zealand! Thanks guys!"

    "It’s absolutely a fantastic beginner surf package. Three nights with four two-hour lessons. We had the best surf teachers who absolutely spoiled us with attention on our surfing. The little hostel was lovely with everyone chatting to each other and the young staff being incredibly helpful. We stayed in a four-person family unit with en suite bathroom. Recommendable on all levels."

    "Boating, fishing, kayaking were what we enjoyed, plus watching the younger ones surfing. The unit we stayed in was spacious and comfortable. Clean facilities and great hosts. Also, I need to mention great range of guests from all over the world, with a mix of kiwi in between."

    "I came here to surf for a while, and this hostel has everything a surf tourist would need. Good breakfast for energy, variety of surfboards, and a good vibe. The size of the hostel makes it possible to be very clean and you get to know people easily! Keep up the good work!"
