Major US news network CNN has released a series of ‘Top 10′ lists that introduces some of New Zealand’s best tourist attractions.
Number two on the list of ’10 top outdoor adventures in New Zealand’ is to learn to surf at Raglan! Check out the entry here:
“Reenact your own “Endless Summer” at one of New Zealand’s classic surf towns. Raglan’s Manu Bay was featured in the iconic 1966 film, with good reason — it’s well known for possessing the longest left-hand break in the world.
A particularly good wave can carry a surfer up to two kilometers. Which implies one mean paddle to get back to the original drop-in point.
The town itself is as laid-back and surfer-friendly as a Kiwi small town can be, with a pretty main street and plenty of hearty fare, beer and local accommodation on offer.
Prices at the Raglan Surfing School start at NZD$145 for a night’s accommodation and two days surfing.”
