Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place was a very lucky find, tucked away at the top end of Waihi Beach, which is itself a bit of a gem. Aidan is a great teacher, friendly, relaxed and full of passion, his energy almost literally transmits to his students and makes you feel very comfortable and confident . Everyone is treated individually, with a lot of care and attention and his advice is always very astute. Thanks again Aidan.

Our 9 year old girls had a lesson with Aidan and were up riding the waves before they new it.
Aidan had them laughing within minutes whilst also covering the safety aspects of the sea and surfing.
We will definitely be back for additional lessons when we are next back. I am sure the kids won’t let us wait long.

Great value for money.

Aidan is an awesome instructor. He has the experience & personality to teach the full spectrum of students ranging from kids to seniors & simplify a sport that has eluded many from enjoying.
He provides all u need; just show up with desire to learn. Within an hour, he had both a 10 yr old and myself (68) catching waves. The 10 yr old was nailing most waves, while I got the basics & a few rides.
Very friendly waves & beach contour to get started.
Great fun !

My two sons and I had lessons for approximately 2 hours with Jake. He is a great teacher. He took his time explaining everything thoroughly so we got on our boards we were well prepared. He even took his time to teach my 5 year old until he was standing in a wave.

Aiden is an excellent teacher. My partner and I are in our 60's and Aiden gave us the start we needed to get a start. He's great with kids too. Well worth it!

Aidan and his teachers have a great rapport with young and old alike, and cover all safety aspect of surfing prior to entering the water. However, learners don't spend long being dry! Quickly into the swing of things, trainees will be out in amongst the waves, learning the techniques required to master this sport.
