It is a shared room with 6 comfortable bunk beds. The dorm is a perfect fit for travelers aiming to save a bit. The spacious bunks allow guests to sit on your bed and relax reading a book or just to get ready for your next adventure.


  • 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.
