The perfect place to start your surfing journey!

About your lesson

In our Group Surf Lesson, you will learn all the basics about your board, the waves, how to paddle, stand up, and a dose of surf safety.

You’ll be fully prepared before you hit the water and your instructor will be right there beside you, pushing you into waves and offering you their expert tips and tricks.

It’s our goal to have you paddling and surfing on your own by the end of your session. We pride ourselves on offering a lesson that sets you up for success and one that keeps you surfing!

  • Beginner surfers or anyone wanting a refresher
  • Surfers who want a little extra support, a watchful eye and tips and tricks from an instructor

  • This lesson is not suitable for kids under the age of 12. Please see our private group lessons.

Amazing first time surfing in Raglan! I had great fun with Sarah, who is a very skilled instructor and knows how to share her passion for surfing. Thanks Sarah, I’ll put your advice to good use

Took my first surf lesson here. Sarah was a fantastic instructor! Great hang but also got me up on a few waves!

Absolutely amazing folks at Raglan Surf School! Would recommend to anybody! My partner and I took a lesson and rented gear for the following day. The lesson was phenomenal, very simple instructions led to great success in the water!

We are Raglan locals and a 100% kiwi-owned business

When you surf with Raglan Surf School, you’re not only supporting a local family-run business; you’re also backing Maori business and the extended Raglan whanau. 

Ngā mihi! (thank you)


We do it for the love of surfing!

We love seeing the stoke of our students riding their first wave. The excitement and exhilaration you get from the ocean is one of a kind, and that’s why we love what we do, and why we come to work every day! 

We are all surfers, and want to share our love of the ocean and this truly magical sport with everyone we can.
