Surfing for Schools

Education Outside The Classroom (EOTC)

TUTUKAKA SURF NORTHLAND has surf program's for both primary and secondary schools and work with all schools to provide education in surfing, surf survival & safety, surfing culture and fun surf fitness programs. We are conscious of the number of drownings at our surf beaches so are careful to explain how to handle different surf conditions to school students. The aim is to empower learners to be able to identify possible hazards when visiting our many surf beaches and to be able to advise family members and friends where the safest place is to have fun on the beach.

Pricing for school group surf lessons starts at $15+gst, depending on group numbers. Please contact the team at Tutukaka surf to design a suitable program for your school group. +649 4344135
