Surf Lesson Bridal Veil Falls
$70-90 Free!

Grab a surfboard, head to the beach, finish up with some fish n’ chips, and you are basically living like a local! Well, that’s easier said than done if you are like me and had never surfed before. Luckily, there are awesome surf schools in Raglan. Plus, Raglan is the perfect place to learn to surf as there is always consistent waves. While you’re in Raglan, don’t forget to visit the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls only 30 minutes drive away. There are several different viewing platforms to take in the waterfall’s magnificence.
