3. We’re easy on the environment
Not only do the staff at AS care about our customers, but we care about the environment too! Just check out some of the things we’ve got going on as a team behind the scenes: aotearoasurf.co.nz/surfing-for-good/

It’s only 60 minutes from Auckland and boasts the most consistent, fun waves on the East Coast!
5. We believe in empowering our guests
… not just teaching them how to stand up. A lot of surf schools sell your basic ‘surf lesson’. Unlike them, we aim to teach you how to surf by yourself. We give YOU the confidence and knowledge to be surfing on your own including ocean safety, understanding conditions, understanding your board, how to read the waves, we EMPOWER you.
6. We don’t discriminate – we truly believe surfing is for EVERYONE
Doesn’t matter if you grew up on the beach or 10 hours away from one, whether you’e old or young, fit or not! We can guarantee you will have an awesome time out there!
