TARANAKI

NEW ZEALAND

star-travel-guide

ABOUT THE LOCATION

Tucked away on the central west coast of New Zealand’s North Island, the Taranaki region is both overlooked and under-appreciated. In the Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Travel 2017’ the world-renowned travel authority has chosen Taranaki as the second-best adventure region in the world to visit with Surf Coast Highway 45 being given a special mention.

Taranaki is a region of rolling dairy farms, easygoing residents and sleepy side roads, but look further and you’ll find black-sand beaches lapped by Tasman Sea surf, and the provincial capital of New Plymouth boasting a world-class arts scene. Towering over the whole landscape is Mount Taranaki – one of New Zealand’s most photogenic mountains.

WAVES AND SURF PROGRAM

Your Safari Surf Adventures surf coaching program will be led by our experienced and passionate local team. We will guide you to level appropriate waves and employ the unique SSA training curriculum in and out of the water.

A key component of our teaching philosophy is video and photo reviews, helping to track your progress and giving you focussed goals to work on throughout the program. All progress tracking, photos and videos we take of you are yours to take home at the end of your SSA adventure, giving you a great reference for continued progression whenever and wherever you surf.

SURF SPOT BREAKDOWN

Surfers have been making the pilgrimage around Taranaki’s coast for generations, colonising the endless point breaks as they ventured further round the volcano.

Legendary waves like Stent Road, the Kumara Patch and the aptly named Rocky Point are supplemented by the likes of Arawhata Road, Mangahume, Back Beach and Fitzroy Beach to offer a wave for almost any wind and swell direction.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

Climb Mount Taranaki

For the adventurous soul, Mount Taranaki offers a fantastic summit to scale with jaw-dropping panoramic views. The best time to climb Mt Taranaki is from February to mid-April when the slopes are bare of snow. The trek can be completed in one day.

Mountain Biking

Taranaki’s volcanic landscape offers over 14000 kms of trails for mountain biking and hiking, offering stunning views, lush vegetation and waterfalls. Take your pick and get out into an incredible natural world!

Arts and Culture

Taranaki boasts a number of frontier towns and settlements along the ‘Surf Highway’, from New Plymouth to Opunake. Individual art, music and theatre can be found around every corner proving Taranaki is certainly no one-trick nature pony when it comes to adventures here!

Other sports

Other sport activities you can do is Skateboarding in the Skate Park just at our surf centre, go Mountain Biking in the Sierra da Sintra or just hiking along the beaches – we are always happy to support you with any tips and hints – just ask us!
