Raglan Surf School

Raglan Surf School

In the 1960s the beaches to the south of Raglan township began attracting surfers because of their unusual left-hand surf breaks. The Raglan Surf School is located at Whale Bay. Youth camps and courses for school students and adults are offered there. Here, a beginner practises her surfing in the bay.
