Learn to Surf at Raglan Beach

Catch some waves in Raglan with a group surf lesson. This coastal town with its magnificent black sand coastline is an absolute surfing mecca. Raglan offers world-class surf breaks and some of the most consistent surf in the country. With a bit of help from your instructor you’ll be riding the waves like a pro in no time.

The group lesson starts at Ngarunui Beach car park  5 minutes outside Raglan. Raglan Surf School chose to have a maximum ratio of 6 students to 1 instructor, this means they’re able to offer you plenty of personalised tips.

First, you’ll learn the basics of surfing and surfboard vocabulary, stance, posture and a proper dose of water and beach safety.

You’ll be fully prepared before you hit the surf! You’ll get  custom fitted for a wetsuit and surfboard at the iconic Red fire-truck and wooden trailer, located at Ngarunui Beach car park.

After a quick regroup on the sand you’ll have your instructor right there beside you in the surf ready to help you choose your waves, help line your board up and even push you into waves. The goal is to have you paddling into waves yourself by the end of the lesson.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Raglan is known globally for its iconic breaks & surf culture. Less known is that it’s also home to NZ’s original surf school, and barely known by anyone, Raglan Surf School were one of Chuffed’s very first partner businesses! We have heard nothing but rave reviews from our customers who have surfed with these guys, so don’t hesitate about this one for any reason!

The Most Outrageous of all ZORB Rides

Superman dive into a giant inflatable ball and roll down Mt Ngongotaha with ZORB, where the fun will have you laughing uncontrollably.

Discover MEGA Track -the longest, fastest and steepest track in the world at a full 300 metres! Think of it like a giant water slide, 40 litres of water (warm in winter, cool in summer) with no tumbling involved, just full on belly laughs from top to bottom. To this day, Rotorua is the ONLY location in New Zealand where you can experience this amazingly fun and bizarre bucket list activity.

Don’t let the cold weather rain on your parade. There are three hot tubs on site to keep toasty in after your ride, as well as a brand spanking new sauna at the bottom of the hill, heated changing rooms with hairdryers and even blankets!

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

The team who started Chuffed did so after working as near neighbors to the Zorb team, at Rotorua Canopy Tours. After years of working closely with the Zorb team, seeing first hand their amazing experiences & fun & professional customer service style, it was a no brainer for us to bring Zorb on as one of our first partner businesses!

Secret Spot Hot Tubs

You’ll find a relaxed atmosphere and friendly welcome when you discover this secret spot in the forest.

It’s all about connecting you with nature, friends, and family after your day’s adventures. Bathe in your own cedar hot tub surrounded by native trees and ferns, while you receive tub-side bar service at the push of a button.

The fresh (non-geothermal) water comes from a aquifer spring, which is heated to just the right temperature for you to enjoy a relaxing 45-minute soak. The tubs can fit up to six people and come with complimentary drinking water and lockers. You can bring your own swimwear, or there is swimwear, towels, and robes for hire. Check in 15 minutes before your booked soak time.

Explore the unique café and bar in a backyard setting – which has smooth manuka-roasted coffee, Good George craft beer and cider, and Mills Reef wine.

Have a bite to eat, play lawn games and enjoy the outdoor campfires, or unwind with a “Shinny Dip” in the cute foot hot tubs, free with any drinks purchase.

Zorb

One ride down the 250m long straight track at the world famous Zorb site in Rotorua: Superman dive into the ball then slip slide & laugh as you make your way down the 250m slope on Mt Ngongotaha. There is the option of racing alongside someone in another ball next to you on these dual straight tracks, winning will require enough skills to stay upright & run all the way down the hill – good luck!

The Footprints of Kupe Experience

Located in  Opononi, on the edge of the edge of the Hokianga Harbour is this very interesting cultural attraction.

According to some tribal narratives, Kupe was the first Polynesian to discover the islands of New Zealand. Hokianga is uniquely associated with Kupe as the place he secured for his descendants before leaving on his return voyage to our ancient place of origin in the eastern Pacific. Within a generation those descendants, returned to these Hokianga shores. These events and histories are the foundation of local tribal identity.

Manea: Footprints of Kupe was developed from a vision had by local Kaumātua (senior tribal Elders) for preserving their heritage and sharing it with the world.

The actual experience is a 75-minute multisensory journey of guided storytelling – through art, taonga (cultural treasures), film, performance, digital interaction and the splendour of Hokianga’s natural surroundings.

It is split into 3 parts:

Whakapapa / Connect

Meet your guide and begin your journey in the footsteps of Kupe, with descendants of Kupe

Engage in stories about their ancestors and the ancient realms of Kupe, told through carvings and the surrounding land. Deepen your understanding of Māori customs and the dynamic connections to the natural and spiritual world.

Ruku / Immerse

On your arrival at the Manea whare taonga (house of treasures), you are welcomed with the timeless cultural ceremony of pōwhiri.

You now enter the Manea theatre, where a 20-minute 4D-digital extravaganza and live performance immerses you in a full sensory recreation of the rich and vibrant world of the intrepid adventures of Kupe.

You appreciate in a new way the extraordinary feats of  ocean voyaging.

Toro / Interact

From the theatre, your guide will lead you outside to absorb the full significance of the Hokianga harbour and it’s connection.

This was not only where Kupe made his home, but also his final departure point from this land.

You can now continue your journey of discovery at your leisure in the Footprints of Kupe Interactive Gallery, where digital stations reveal more details of our ancestor’s story.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Manea: Footprints of Kupe was developed from a vision had by local Kaumātua (senior tribal Elders) for preserving their heritage and sharing it with the world. Te Hua o Te Kawariki Trust has developed and runs the Manea centre. It is a charitable trust representing a group of local marae and all profits are returned for community projects.  We love this, and this captures the amazing power of tourism to bring income and jobs and community benefits to a community, preserve and educate about other cultures and send people away with a greater understanding of the world we live in. What’s not to love about this.
