A PASSIONATE TEAM
Aotearoa Surf School was founded in 2002 and was one of the founding surf schools in New Zealand. Aotearoa Surf is owned and operated by Che, a local surfer who has a devotion to 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 possible.
IT’S NOT JUST SURFING, IT’S EDUCATION AND EMPOWERMENT
A lot of surf schools sell your basic ‘surf experience’. Instead of this, we aim to teach you how to surf by yourself. We give YOU the confidence and knowledge to be surfing on your own including ocean safety, understanding conditions, understanding your board, and how to read the waves, we EMPOWER you.
Our yoga retreat NZ is a combination of traditional yoga poses, dynamic movement, and functional flow to help improve agility, strength, and balance to complement your surfing experience. All whilst connecting to your breath and body to encourage a sense of calm and centredness. The classes are layered to cater to all levels.
