"Surf exploration and access perfect uncrowded waves"

This is the ultimate in surf exploration. Can you think of a better way to access perfect uncrowded waves with the least amount of fuss and time wastage? Neither can we! Get access to waves that are difficult or impossible to access from land and score uncrowded perfection – by yourself. The experienced guides will use all their local knowledge and experience to put you in the right place at the right time. Just land on the beach and go surf, it’s so simple. Accommodation can be arranged on request and you can choose from any number of different destinations. Or you can choose the standard trip which entails a flight to GT Barrier Island. GT Barrier Island is a short thirty minute flight from the capital, Auckland, and offers five very good uncrowded surf breaks.

"New Zealand is exposed to swell and offshore winds"

New Zealand is made up of a North and a South Island. Auckland is situated on the North Island; the North Island is warmer and more temperate than the South Island. New Zealand is very exposed to swell and with it being an island it’s always offshore somewhere. The Southern Hemisphere winter from March to November is ideal for regular swells whipping their way up from the roaring forties – there certainly won’t be a lack of swell! This is the ultimate surf adventure and a once in a lifetime experience – how many people do you know that have gone on a heli surf safari? Exactly!
