Surfing for Farmers: Fitzroy Beach,Taranaki

The perfect break – if you are looking for a fun off-farm activity, the popular Surfing for Farmers programme is kicking off on 7 December at Fitzroy Beach.

Supporting the mental health of the NZ farming community

The learn-to-surf programme provides an opportunity for farmers to step away from what can be an all-consuming business, get fresh air, exercise and interact with other farmers, rural families and industry professionals.

You will be provided wetsuits and surfboards but if you have access to one already please bring along.

The sessions are free of charge and after the surfing session there is a free BBQ giving participants a chance to catch up. 


Every Tuesday from 5.30 —7.30pm. Starting Tuesday 7 December. 

  • 7th December 2021

  • 21st December 2021

Break for Xmas, starting again on 18th January 2022 and run until the weather gets too bad.
