Whilst we are based at Te Arai, Black Swamp & Forestry we are a mobile surf school and also operate from Mangawhai Heads, Matakana and Orewa. We find Te Arai is always the best bet as is most likely to have the best surfing conditions over other surfing locations.

We meet 20min before your lesson at the Aotearoa Surf Shop at 11 Te Arai Point Rd, Te Arai for checkin and waiver process
