Step out into nature, feel the breeze of the ocean on your skin and your toes melting into the send as you embark on your journey towards a healthier, fitter and more relaxed version of yourself with our Womens Surf, Yoga & Wellness Day.

Building upon Aotearoa Surf’s weekly Surf Sistas program, our Womens Surf, Yoga & Wellness Day looks at combining women’s passion for the ocean, adventure and being active, with a relaxing, holistic and healthy living approach to surfing through yoga. We strive to lure women away from their stressful, everyday lives and into the surf for one incredible, revitalising day!

The day will be broken up into 3 parts; Surf Fitness, Surfing & Surf Yoga:

Fitness: Radiate & Run
Our Surf Fitness class will focus upon basic fitness concepts, body strength, flexibility and balance, all of which are applied during surfing. We encourage all levels of fitness to join in and encourage individuals to train at a pace they feel comfortable. The environment will be a very positive, supportive one; we are all on a journey of healthier living together.

Surf: Refresh & Ride
Whether you are an experienced surfer or it’s your first time in the water, our instructors will cater to your specific needs, teaching you the basics of turning, paddling and getting up on your board, or improving your already existing skills.

Choose your level:
Beginner Surf Lesson (Level 1)
For those that are new to surfing, or never surfed before. Also for those that may have had a few surf lessons before but are still working on the basics, like your popup, getting your weight forward on the board and riding.

This includes:
- Beach awareness, safety, and session plan
- Know your board
- Ocean entry and board handling
- The mount, positioning & paddling
- Whitewater gliding & manoeuvring
- The popup to surf stance methods
- Speed & manoeuvring

Progressive Improver Lesson (Level 2)
For those who are consistently popping up and riding broken whitewater and the occasional unbroken green wave.

This includes:
- Beach awareness, safety, and session plan
- Beginner refresher, understanding your board and the waves
- Positioning & trimming
- Paddling for success
- The glide & popup
- Compressions / extension for speed – the why, when, how
- Frontside & backside turns
- Bottom turns

Yoga: Recover & Revive
Similar to the surfing, whether you’re a veteran yogi or have never been to a class, our yoga teacher will be sure to tailor the class to all levels. It will encompass gentle movements, stretches and breathing techniques, all of which interrelate to the movements made whilst surfing. Presence, mindfulness and awareness, body alignment and connection, breathing and energy flow are all vital components of our every day lives that will be explored throughout the class.
