Adaptive Surfing Hibiscus Surf School

Bay of Plenty
Everyday in summer. By arrangement the rest of the year

Parafed Bay of Plenty have teamed up with Hibiscus Surf School to run adaptive surfing events from October – March at Mount Maunganui Main Beach.

They also offer ‘Friday Float’ sessions which are focused on assisting people with disabilities in the ocean during different ocean-based activities. These programs are a great way to get participants comfortable in the ocean if they haven’t participated in an activity like it before. They are also available for private adaptive lessons year-round, just give them a call to let them know what your requirements are. Please register to discuss your needs.


Free but participants must register and be Parafed Bay of Plenty members.

Observed 14/07/23

Matariki is a time where people, whānau, and communities gather together to remember the year that has passed, to celebrate the present, and to plan for the next year. It is a time to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us, to feast and celebrate with our relatives and friends, and to look towards the future and the hope of a season full of bounty.
