Aotearoa Surf is owned and operated by Che, a local surfer who has a devotion for all things related to the ocean. He has a passionate, experienced and qualified team of instructors from the local area who pride themselves on giving everyone the best experience and memories as possible.
IT’S ALL ABOUT LOCATION!
We operate out of the most beautiful beaches in the Auckland region. Including Te Arai, Mangawhai, Orewa, Omaha, Pakiri and Waipu Cove. Our main two beaches, Te Arai and Mangawhai are just 60 minutes north of Auckland’s CBD. These beaches boast clear, blue waters and consistent, fun waves.
WE CAN DO IT ALL
We can put together ANY package with your surfing; a BBQ, yoga lesson, beach games, paddle boarding kayaking, transport, flights etc. You name it, we’ll package it.
IT’S NOT JUST SURFING, IT’S EDUCATION AND EMPOWERMENT
A lot of surf schools sell your basic ‘surf experience’. We aim to teach you the knowledge and build your confidence to be surfing on your own.
Empowering you to understand your board, read the waves and know the conditions.
