Worth every dollar
Dec 2019 • Family
It is definitely worthwhile, my dad also took a lesson and by the end of the lesson he was able to stand up on the board and ride the wave inshore and that’s for a guy who has never surfed in his life. I was a bit more advanced than my dad and the instructor took me out back and I was able to catch my first unbroken wave, turn on the wave and I learnt to read the waves so I knew what waves to catch and which direction I should go in and in 2 hours I was able to do all this and more.

Best in Mangawhai
Thanks Aotearoa for a great afternoon. It is no small tasks keeping 5 teenage girls motivated on the water. You guys did way more...they learned heaps and had fun at the same time.
