SURFPAD is an Oasis enriched with a true Kiwi flavour.

Offers adventures that excites and delights its customers.

Mission; To provide a affordable quality Kiwi style holiday, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Surf lessons available by qualified instructors, who will teach you to embrace the seas energy, while maintaining respect for our ocean and surrounding coastlines.

Surfpad is about 30 paces from the surf beach, which flows into a beautiful estuary, which is great for the very young swimmers, also good to do some snorkelling if you wish.There is a foot bridge connecting North Pataua and South Pataua. A lot of holiday makers spend time on the bridge, fishing and often jumping it as well a very popular pass time at Pataua. There is a boat ramp for those who wish to bring a boat, and during the summer holidays there are fishing contests if that's your game.

Surfpad has 2 fully trained surf instructors that are available for surf lessons. We also have surfboard hire . We have paddle boards for hire which is a lot of fun in the estuary and would be happy to give you lessons if you need them . There is a shop that operates during the summer holidays, they have their own bakery and take aways, this is about 20 minutes walk over the bridge to the south side. There are heaps of things to do lots of coastal walks, surfing, swimming, fishing, tennis courts all close by. If you need to go to town its a 30 minute drive over sealed roads.

The best thing about staying at the Surfpad, is you can do all these things or just do nothing at all. If you are staying here out side of the summer holidays there are no shops open at Pataua, apart from a new cafe called Tahi which is about 2 km on a flat road very walkable, which is open Friday and Saturdays, so you can enjoy a very nice coffee or brunch hours 7.30-3pm so be sure you bring every thing you need for your stay. It is a 30 minute drive to Whangarei if you forget anything.
