    Lifestyle block in gorgeous Te Arai & SURF SCHOOL
    We are full till December 20th But then can accomodate 1 person from Dec 20th to Feb 1st.
    Looking for mature, like minded surfer with own vehicle!

    My name is Che, 38, Male, live alone 'for now'
    In the summer (Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, March, Apr) I am very busy with the surf school and it is always good to have someone around that can help with activities around the property.

    Always on the lookout for like minded experienced surfers.

    I also have a 4.5 acre property that im developing into a personal retreat

    Developing Native subtropical gardens, natural swimming pools, native bush walks, orchard and much more. Focused on sustainability, food production and adventure activities! - Also come surfing with me!

    Design proposed by the best sustainable habitat designers around and we have the final drawings complete

    Im looking for people that are motivated, fit and not afraid to get stuck in for a few hours a day. Great nutritious fresh food customized to your likes =)

    I see work away as travelers i can introduce to the great experiences NZ has to offer.

    I will be more than happy to use my gear to enjoy Mangawhai and Te Arai.. Surfing, Paddleboarding, Kayaking, Mountain Biking etc

    I am pretty passionate and sometimes should slow down, but I like to have a few projects on the go at once, I have fun and dont take things too seriously =)

    Get in touch and help create a wonderland with me and enjoy the pacific ocean =)
