The retreat takes you to the beautiful town of Whangamata in New Zealand that is situated on the Southeast Coast of the Coromandel Peninsula.

Whangamata is embellished with magnificent coastal scenery making it a tropical paradise of New Zealand. Famous for its unique combination of beaches and rainforest, rugged forest-cloaked interior and other natural attractions, Whangamata has two ocean beaches, and both are extremely safe for beach and water activities.

Whangamata was voted the best beach in NZ giving you a sight of a number of off-shore islands. Many of the islands like Clark and Hauturu are accessible in the summer months wading by the low tide.

Away from the crowd and hustles of modern life, Whangamata is an ideal place for a soulful escape and unwinding of ‘self’. It is a popular holiday destination especially at the time of the New Year.

The program packages are designed with the beginner in mind. The packages let you walk onto the path of becoming a surfer under the guidance of Surfing New Zealand certified instructors. During the course, you learn about surfing safety tips, ocean awareness, equipment, and surf etiquette. You’ll be introduced to a progressive methodology that guarantees you to catch your first wave in no time.

As per the program, the policy of one surfing instructor with a group of six students is being followed and is flexible depending on the crowd and waves length.
