We are based in Sumner, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Christchurch RegionalSumner is a sleepy seaside suburb of Christchurch, the South Islands largest city (Popn. approx. 380,000). Sumner is just twenty minutes drive from the centre of town and is serviced by public transport.(Purple line Bus). Sumner offers accommodation for all budgets. There are several good bars, cafes, and restaurants. There is also a supermarket, post office, and movie theatre.

We were severaly affected by the earthquakes in 2010/2011 but we have recovered strongly. The beach area was unaffected. The road out here has been repaired and the containers are all disappearing.

Surf Beaches

Taylors MistakeMost lessons occur at Scarborough Beach, Sumners main beach. The waves are gentle rolling surf ideally suited to beginners, longboarding and SUP surfing. If conditions are not suitable at Scarborough then we have the option of moving to either Sumner Beach or Taylors Mistake Bay. Taylors Mistake Bay is Christchurchs’ best surf beach, providing steep powerful waves for Intermediate to Advanced Surfers.
