Merry Christmas from Waihi Beach Surf School!
Yes, it’s that time of the year again – summertime in New Zealand! We love this time of the year because we have such stunning beaches and we all love to flock towards the sea and make the most that summer has to offer.
The best part about summertime in New Zealand by far is the surf! You haven’t learned how to surf yet? Well, fear not, everyone here at Waihi Beach Surf School will equip you with absolutely everything and teach you all the skills you need to know!
Based at the north end of New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty, Waihi Beach is the ideal place and safest beach to learn how to surf. With summer coming it is absolutely the best time of the year to experience this idyllic piece of coastline.
We want you to experience firsthand the absolute delight and exhilaration of surfing for the first time and we can guarantee that when you take a surf lesson with us, you will be riding the waves and feeling the thrill that so many surfers have found at Waihi Beach. This whole 9km strip of beach is a fabulous spot for swimming and soaking up sunlight in a festive Kiwi atmosphere, which will keep you coming back year after year.

We’re finally back in the water doing what we do best: teaching the joy of surfing and what a way to start our first surfing lesson by welcoming to new Zealand 21 new Waihi college international students.
The students are about to start an 8 week surfing course that will take them on a journey of surf Discovery from complete beginners to seasoned wave warriors guided the whole way by the Waihi Beach surf schools team of highly skilled surf coaches.
Today, we had a great after school session. Kids are learning quickly and they are getting ready for a summer full of surfing fun.
In our group, we mainly have local kids and even two kids from Auckland!
The conditions were perfect as always in Waihi Beach for learning to surf.

All our beginners lessons starts with water safety. We explain the beach, how rips work, what to do if you get caught in a rip, how to identify rips and how to signal your distress.
Waihi Beach is one of safest surf beaches in New Zealand but there is always a rip at the northern end against the rock. So be careful around there. Always ask a local, one of our instructor or the lifeguard if it is safe.
Our instructors are qualified ISA and SNZ approved surf coaches. They are always on-hand to perform the occasional rescue. Checkout Aidan rescuing 3 people from a capsized boat!
