Top 3 Watersports locations:

 

Safety Bay, Western Australia (January – March):  It’s summer, warm & windy. Incredibly good wind and water conditions, with freestyle options on both tacks. Typically there is a host of the worlds Pro riders to get inspired by and ride with at this time of the year

Squamish, British Columbia, Canada (June – September): Probably the most reliable wind I have ever come across – every day it blows like clockwork! It’s summer time (a good kiwi-winter getaway spot!) warm wind, but cold water (bring your wetty) Stunning views with glacier mountains in the backdrop. “The Spit” is the main spot with glassy flat water on the downwind side. There’s also a very friendly crew to help you out and cheer you on

Orewa, Auckland, New Zealand: Year round can’t beat your home spot! Best with a warm North Easterly wind, low tide and small swell to flatten out the sections. Nothing like riding with the local crew!
