O’Neill Surf Academy operates in some of New Zealand’s most beautiful untouched scenery. It’s as though nature designed the coastline with surfers in mind!

We operate across Northland, Matakana Coasts, Orewa & Mount Maunganui. Founded by O’Neill NZ and Surfaris NZ, we offer surf lessons, surf tours, school & holiday camps, corporate team building, family surf days, beach education, surf culture and all-round adventure.

Tiny coves, long sandy beaches, river mouths, point breaks, sandbars and reefs…..all within a short drive across 3 coasts. The true beauty behind O’Neill Surf Academy is its mobility. Surf conditions change and because of our mobility we’re able to teach on nothing but the best Northland has to offer that day.

Learning to surf is a great discipline that feeds the mind, body and soul – so why not give it a go! Standing for the first time is a memory to last that will have you smiling from ear to ear.

Our skilled surf coaching, stunning locations, small class sizes and pure love of the ocean make us unique. Whether you are a complete beginner, or an intermediate surfer wishing to improve please get in touch to book your surfing experience.

Safety is a top priority as well as matching your ability to the perfect wave. Join us today.
