Take a Private Surf Lesson at Raglan

Catch some waves in Raglan with a private surf lesson.

Learning to surf is a truly unforgettable experience and Raglan is one of the greatest surfing destinations in New Zealand to do so.

If you’re a complete novice, or if you’ve already surfed a bit and you’re looking to take your surfing to the next level, maybe venture further out the back to catch green waves; a private lesson is perfect for you.

Raglan’s professional instructors can tailor your lesson to suit your ability and will spend every moment teaching just you. They’ll get you progressing faster!

A private lesson allows the instructor to understand your needs quicker so they can adapt their teaching methods to your personality, style and level.
You’ll get to learn to read the waves and understand the spot.

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.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

We’ve found learning to surf to be  popular choice by Chuffed recipients. We think it’s probably one of those things people would like to try but never get around to it. So when you are given a gift with it as an option, suddenly there is a reason. And we have found the team at Raglan Surf to be a delight to work with.

Invercargill Drive a Digger Experience Chuffed Gifts

Three iconic Invercargill attractions in one Southland Motoring Mega Pass!

Looking for things to do in Invercargill? Make your trip south a blast you’ll never forget. The Transport World mega pass combines experiences at the city’s three favourite visitor attractions: Bill Richardson Transport World, Classic Motorcycle Mecca and Dig This Invercargill. Create bucket-list memories that will last forever!

One man’s passion started it all: but if you think Bill Richardson Transport World is strictly for petrolheads, think again. The whole whānau will be captivated by the largest private automotive museum of its type in the world. With more than 300 classic vehicles – from Ford letter cars to pastel-perfect Kombis – a movie theatre, wearable arts, retro memorabilia galore, kids zones including a LEGO room, and quirky themed bathrooms, here you’ll discover something for everyone.

From John Britten to Brough Superior and hometown hero Burt Munro, Classic Motorcycle Mecca has it all. Ride into yesterday and discover the Southern Hemisphere’s leading classic motorcycle collection. Housed in two sympathetically-restored period buildings in the heart of Invercargill, Classic Motorcycle Mecca’s 300+ bikes dating back to 1902 and impressive artwork display is a truly mind-blowing experience for enthusiasts and newbies alike.

It’s grunty fun for everyone! Are you ready to leap outside your comfort zone and get your blood pumping? Dig This Invercargill is New Zealand’s only heavy machinery playground. Take your pick between a Big Dig (master the controls of a 15-tonne digger to experience 360-degree spins, a digger handstand, and even digger basketball) or a Big Push (if you loved building – then smashing – sandcastles as a kid, the 15-tonne bulldozer is the machine for you). Fully instructed, you don’t need any experience – or even a driver’s licence! Smash it off your bucket list today.

Rotorua Canopy Tours – Original Experience

Rotorua Canopy Tours – Original Experience

In 2021 TripAdvisor, the world’s largest traveller review site named Rotorua’s Original Canopy Tour the #1 Nature Activity in the world. Thrilling visitors since 2012 with its unique combination of adventure tourism and conservation this is a experience you will not forget.

Located deep in an ancient native forest only 15 minutes from Rotorua, that has been painstakingly restored over over the last 10 years, into a safe haven for native birds and creatures you’ll traverse this magnificent environment via a series of walking trails, suspended forest bridges and ziplines. It’s a truely magnificent experience. If your lucky you’ll even handfeed wild native birds.

Soar through the trees and experience New Zealand’s ancient forest like never before. Step back in time in this native forest and come face to face with towering trees and native flora untouched for centuries in one of the most intact native eco-systems you’ll find anywhere in New Zealand. Immerse yourself in this breath-taking country the way it once was and hear the beautiful birdsong of New Zealand native birds including Tuis, North Island Robins, Kereru and Tomtits in their natural habitat.

Embark on a network of ziplines, swing bridges, cliff-walks, tree top platforms and more which journey deep into 500 hectares of ancient forest. A uniquely intimate experience, each tour has a limit of 10 people, meaning more time with your authentic Kiwi guides who are highly trained to keep you safe, make you smile and teach you amazing things as they bring the forest to life.

It’s an adventure that puts you at the heart of the forest restoration story, with every ticket purchased contributing to conservation efforts. To date, 220 hectares of the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve have been restored by removing thousands of predators. Together we have brought the forest back to life and created a forest eco-sanctuary for birdlife to flourish.

Equal parts inspiring, fun and educational, this award-winning adventure is a must-do adventure activity perfect for all ages. Lose yourself on this engaging encounter with the natural world and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Started in 2008 by two pioneering Kiwi mates who had a vision of delivering a mind blowing forest experience using a series of ziplines, swing bridges & elevated platforms, this experience was recently ranked the #1 Nature activity IN THE WORLD by Tripadvisor! Praise doesnt get much higher than that. Not only is this a beautiful & thrilling forest experience, it is also environmentally responsible & educational. A portion of every ticket sold goes to the restoration of the native NZ forest that the tour runs in. You arrive as a stranger & leave as a part of the story of the impressive conservation efforts that have taken place here!
