I'm going to NZ and Oz next year and was wondering whether there any decent cheap`places where I could learn to surf? I will be travelling from Auckland to Christcurch in NZ and from Sydney to Cairns in Oz - any ideas would be welcome!
Australia's beaches are far superior to NZs, so I'd recommend there. You might find it cheaper outside of the big cities like Sydney and Brisbane etc. Just keep your ears to the ground and ask around when you get there.
