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.

Whitewater River Rafting

Experience the thrill of one of New Zealand’s best whitewater rafting trips on the Wairoa River near Tauranga – its the ultimate full on grade 5 rafting trip.

The Waiora River which flows out of the Kaimai Ranges into the Bay of Plenty is a whitewater mecca. In the 1970’s the river was earmarked for hydro electricity and the river was dammed. But due to the intense opposition by the Kaimai Canoe Club a compromise was arrived and the dam would release water 26 days a year to bring the river back to it’s white water mecca status.

So on 26 Sundays a year this occurs and the rafting is nothing short of grade 5 epic-ness..

This is one of the most technical commercial rafting trips in the country so is not recommended for non swimmers and is graded grade 5.

This fantastic rafting adventure offers a stunning rock and tree lined gorge that combines turbulent rapids with exciting drops to produce top whitewater action. There’s no better way to experience New Zealand rivers than this epic rafting adventure.

 

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

The writer (James from Chuffed) experienced this rafting trip over 20 years ago and the thrill, excitement and pure joy of this trip is well etched in the memory. With rapids called Mothers Nightmare, The Rollercoaster and Devils Cauldron you get the idea. This is a very experienced rafting operator having run trips down the Wairoa river for over 25 years.

Sailing away in the Abel Tasman

Exploring the Abel Tasman should be on everybody’s ‘must do’ list sometime in their lifetime, and we can’t think of a most relaxing and effortless way than on a large sailing Catamaran.

This package includes a water taxi from Kaiteriteri Beach to Anchorage Beach in the National Park. Depending on how long you want to spend on the beach at Anchorage, you can choose your time for the water taxi to suit you – 9.00am, 10.30am, 12.00pm, or 12.40pm.

At Anchorage Beach you will meet your catamaran at 1.30pm for a 3 hour sail back to Kaiteriteri. Along the way you’ll learn about the Abel Tasman National Park, see secluded coves, golden sand beaches and visit a fur seal colony. A stop at the Split Apple Rock is also included.

You’ll arrive back at Kaiteriteri at approximately 4.30pm.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy:

When we were researching partners to become part of the Chuffed offering we very quickly decided we needed an effortless option for people to explore the Abel Tasman National Park. Often we associate kayaks and walkers with the Abel Tasman but that isn’t for everybody. So a water taxi and sailing experience to enjoy this ultimate summer beauty spot we thought ticked those boxes. Jane-Maree & Martin Holmes have been operating sailing adventures in the region for 23 years so we thought they were the perfect match for Chuffed.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy? 

People with a passion they want to share with others are the backbone of New Zealand’s visitor experience economy. Under the Stars is a perfect example of this. Owner/operator Becky started her business in 2018 when she moved her family to Wairarapa to be under the Dark Skies. She has a background in space outreach & teaching, and when not taking or arrangeing Astronomy tours, Becky is a strong advocate for the establishment of Wairarapa as a certified Dark Sky Reserve.
