Surfing For Farmers - Waihi, Waikato

One night each week over Summer, we trade the paddock for the beach

The perfect break, each meetup consists of a laid back surf lesson and surf session, followed by a yarn and a BBQ. Simple, fun, easy.

Surfing for Famers runs for approximately 13 weeks, starting in December through to late March.

Ag, hort and anything in between, Surfing for Farmers is for you. Whatever you farm, wherever you farm it, we’ve got a surfboard waiting with your name on it.

Each session usually starts at around 5.30pm and we surf for as long as you like. The rest depends on how long you want to stick around for afterwards. Farmers usually find that after the de-stress and wicked experience of surfing, the good times and yarns are flowing!

Surfing for Farmers is completely free of charge. Funds from our awesome sponsors help pay for all the wetsuits, boards, surfing tutors and BBQs.

Just like we wouldn’t ask the Boardriders to swing a gate, they wouldn’t ask us to surf a barrel. 

All skill levels are welcome and no surfing experience is needed. Surfing for Farmers is a safe and supportive environment, so the Boardriders will be in the water with you helping out.

No need to worry about fitness either, our boards would still float with the entire All Black front row on them.
