人生第一次衝浪,雖然並沒有完全學會最基本的技能,但我確實享受其中了!首先,老闆Charlie是一個令人難忘的、熱情好客的正港kiwi。不僅招待了我們一頓美味的小鎮晚餐——魚和薯條,還親自下廚給我們中國背包客準備了亞洲口味的炒麵作為早餐!離開前還送了我們衝浪學校的T恤做紀念。
這裡雖然網路不暢,你不能享受和城市一樣的高科技生活,但來到這兒我們都是為了享受自然、從衝浪的刺激中體味運動的樂趣!!這就夠了~強烈推薦華人朋友來嘗試戶外運動,這一定比拍照留念更能讓我們在旅行中增長見識~

So fun renting a surfboard for the afternoon. Convenient because it is right on the beach!

We bought a private lesson whilst on holiday in New Zealand and it totally made our experience fun and unique! We were first-timers in relation to surfing and would definitely recommend using this school, the instructor was friendly and encouraging, we had a full afternoon in the sea, and even managed to stand a good few times!

We did a three hour surf lesson. Cool surf teacher. You can have a free sauna. $90 is a bit expensive.

Great fun! Really good explanations from all instructors. I had taken a lesson before in Bali where they didn't give much instruction and I didn't learn much. I was really impressed with how well organized this lesson was.

We did a beginners lesson for 3 hours. It was really good value for money. The instructor was friendly, encouraging and helpful. I have surfed before so was able to improve my technique and start learning how to turn. My friend was a complete beginner and she was standing on the board by the end of the lesson! We were the only two people in the lesson so we had heaps of attention and help. It was brilliant!

Really good. Soft learner boards and great instruction. They take you to a beach away from the rest of the surfers. Top location.
