A bit about our history
After wrapping up his PhD which investigated the sustainable development of surf tourism in the Mentawai Islands, NZ Surfing Adventures founder Nick Towner needed a new focus in life so put his energy into setting up a lifestyle business venture. New Zealand Surfing Adventures was a combination of Nick’s passion for surf adventure around the globe and as well as here in NZ and his educational background in surf tourism. Nick is has over 15 years experience as a surf guide between both the North and South Islands. Nick’s intimate knowledge of both surf and weather conditions alongside his qualifications in surf instruction made him the perfect person to guide you on your surf tour in beautiful New Zealand. In 2016 Nick sold NZ Surfing Adventures to brothers Tama Blackburn and Eli MacDonald, passing on all his valuable experience to two guys keen to carry on his vision for New Zealand’s best surf tours.
