About Akaroa Surf Safaris
Akaroa Surf Safaris is the product of more than two decades of surf exploration around the world by husband & wife team Greville & Allie Walsh. After 5 years of running their very busy surf school in Ireland it was time to return home to where it all began. We set up our surf safaris to give visitors to the Banks Peninsula the opportunity to try something new and fun while exploring the stunning hidden bays with us that most visitors would not get the chance to see during their stay.
Allie & Greville wanted to offer a more personal service with a difference that included not only expert surf tuition but also guided tour from a knowledgeable local guide and some great company & stories along the way.
Their team of qualified and highly experienced staff are all dedicated surfers and love to share their knowledge.They teach safe, correct and progressive techniques for learning to surf which have proved highly effective and keep our clients and visitors coming back for more! We will make the starting process easier, learners will find themselves getting to their feet early with the assistance of our guides. The feeling of riding a wave for the first time is something that you will never forget and there is no where more beautiful to learn than right here in the magical Banks Peninsula.
Allie & Greville have devoted their lives to surfing and love to give back to those who are ready to gain a brand new experience and they look forward to showing their clients some of the secrets the banks peninsula has to offer to the lucky ones who visit here.
