Aotearoa Surf School – bringing youth to the sport of surfing!
Back in full steam, our annual ‘Have A Go Surf Day’ is a safe, easy & fun ‘learn to surf’ day for all levels of surfers. We will have surfing, activities prizes and giveaways from Aotearoa Surf & our sponsors and the best part? It’s completely free!
Aotearoa Surf aims to introduce the excitement and fun of surfing to youth throughout New Zealand every year through this free event. There is no better way to showcase this than to give our future generations the opportunity to try surfing when they are young, giving them ocean confidence and awareness, a place to make new friends as well as a super fun day out in the ocean!
Our ‘Have A Go Surf Day is for kids and youth (4-16 years old) who may be new to surfing, beginners, intermediate surfers and even those that have never surfed before!
All surfboards, wetsuits, sunscreen and coaching provided by internationally qualified and experienced instructors, all of whom are first aid certified and surf lifesaving awarded. Also supported by our local trainee instructors. Lessons throughout the day will cover beginner and intermediate level knowledge and incorporate beach education and safety!
