Begin your surf adventure with pick-up from your central Auckland hotel and soak up the stunning scenery of the Waitakere Ranges regional park on the 45-minute drive to Auckland’s West Coast. Before you arrive at Piha Beach, jump out at the Piha lookout to take some photos, and gaze down over the black sands and towering rocks, fringed by lush rainforest.
Then, head down to the beach to meet your internationally qualified surf instructor and get kitted out with a wetsuit and surfboard. After a safety briefing, it’s time to begin your 3-hour class, starting with practicing basic surf techniques on the beach. With the undivided attention of your professional instructor, you’ll be ready to hit the water in no time, so you can put your newfound skills into action as you try to catch your first wave. Whatever your level, you’ll benefit from expert tuition and be sure to have lots of fun!
Back on the beach, re-fuel with a delicious healthy lunch (included) at the Piha Cafe, then enjoy free time to swim or sunbathe at the beach before returning to your Auckland hotel.
Please note: You’ll be asked to provide your weight and height at the time of booking so that we can match you with the right size wetsuit and surfboard. All you need to bring is your swimsuit and a towel – changing facilities can be found at the beach. Please specify at the time of booking if you are interested in purchasing photos of your surf lesson.
