Top 3 Watersports locations:


Omaha – This is a location where you can do it all. The beach is a perfect curve so that when there is swell on the East Coast SUP surfing is amazing and with such a long beach you can always find the perfect spot. When the wind comes in Omaha becomes a kiteboarding Mecca with good waves that are well spread out.


St Heliers – Is awesome to kite at when the wind is anything between a Westerly and a Northerly. Two hours before or after low tide are good because you get shallow flat water. I find that when St Heliers is going off I am always progressing and learning.


Orewa – My favourite kiting spot because there are always friends riding there. If you can land a trick in the surf at Orewa you can land it anywhere.
