Why Come?

The laid-back vibe. A creative, artistic feel. The bohemian spirit. Call it what you want. But this magnetic force draws in an attractive mix of friendly locals, curious travelers and keen surfers. Raglan gets compared to an old-school Byron Bay – from 20 years ago. Yet our town has its own special identity.

With three world-class point breaks and a user-friendly beach break, Raglan is New Zealand’s premier surf town. The surf breaks cater to all ability levels ranging from the first-timers to the world’s best.

And while many arrive here because of the surf, Raglan’s cruisy vibe has a powerful effect on all visitors. Just ask around, and you’ll soon discover how many people get “stuck” in Raglan for so long. Beware, Raglan might cast its spell on you. Feel free to quit your day job!

With beautiful surroundings, new arrivals are greeted with the backdrop of Mt. Karioi. Challenge yourself with a full-day summit ascent – or simply enjoy one of Raglan’s shorter bushwalks. Visit the spectacular Bridal Veil Falls. Explore the crystal clear waters of our stunning harbour and its pancake rocks. And, of course, head over to Ngarunui Beach for a stroll along its black volcanic sand and have a go at riding a green wave!

About Us

We’re your friendly local surf instructors.

Ryan Bellerby

I’m 25 years old, have been surfing for 12 and coaching for 7 years. Personally, I feel that surfing has shaped my life in a really positive way. Attending the Raglan Surfing Academy in high school allowed me to develop my skills in the ocean and learn how to analyze photo and video footage concerning the bio mechanics of surfing.

For the past 7 years I have been surf coaching in Raglan for the summers and travelling the globe in our winters, exploring new countries, cultures and surf spots. Starting a Surf School has always been a dream of mine. I find it rewarding to introduce people to our awesome sport, work through the technical aspects and then see the joy that riding a wave can bring.

Raglan is a special place in the sense that the ocean can impart so much joy in our lives. Due to the contour of our coastline, you can surf 365 days a year. We also spend time wake boarding in our beautiful harbour, kayaking, cliff jumping and the occasional fishing trip to provide a tasty dinner for friends and family.

Heres what some of our past students have to say...

“The team at Green Wave taught me the fundamentals of surfing, but also instilled the confidence that I could pick up surfing as a hobby. I learned techniques that that got me standing straight away. The Green Wave Surf School is the only place you want to start hitting the waves”.
