At the back of the Waitemata Harbour Point Chev is a great place for absolute beginners taking lessons to advanced riders looking for some flat water with good wind. Lots of grass at Eric Armishaw Reserve to setup your kite and lots of parking too. Good to go from anything from the west, at high tide most people ride inside the the sand spit, at low tide great riding to be had outside. Shallow a long way out. Make sure you bring some booties for this site as there is a lot of oysters laying about!

Chalong Bay can only be ridden from medium to high tide,the tsunami brought in a lot of small rocks,we have cleared a large area but there are still places which we haven’t been able to do yet,if you are riding from medium tide(level 2.3 metres) onwards then it’s no problem and you can just about kitesurf anywhere,there is only one place in front of friendship bungalows where over an area of 10 metres there is a small rock outcrop,this is easy to see and avoid.If the tide is lower then you can go to the nearby Rawai beach.

Located 50 Mins North East of Auckland this bay offers great shallow flat water kiting on a mid tide as the sandbar forms a lagoon close to the beach.

This beach offers great shallow flat water and hard packed sand at a mid to low tide which is great for beginners however on a high tide the water level is easily over head height and it can become quite choppy so beginners you are best to kite her on a mid to low tide and intermediate to advanced riders JUMP that Chop!!

In summer the beach is pretty packed with swimmers and as the beach is DOC protected and run make extra caution to respect the other beach goers and keep the peace.   Winter is prime time to kite at this beach as it is almost deserted.

Rating: Beginner to advanced

Located 1 hour and a half north of Auckland City, this is one of the best flat water riding spots in the north island.

2 hours after high tide the entire river mouth fills up with water offering a huge area with nice steady winds and flat water, making it a perfect place for beginner to advanced riders. On a low tide you need to be able to ride up wind as you will have to ride on an offshore wind against the sun dunes.

If you are into wave riding this place also offers some nice waves on the ocean side. Better to go on an outgoing tide.

Rating: Beginner to Advanced

If you are a beginner, make sure you go two hours after low tide.

Wind direction: North East to South East, best on straight east.

Tide: 2 hours after low tide for beginners and any tide for intermediate to advanced

Located at the bottom of Garnet Rd. This place is awesome for freestyle but with one big problem, its full of Oysters!! My recommendation is to go there on low tide and have a good look around to get familiar with the place. The launching can be a bit hard to, as you have to go over a wall to get to the water, if you are not experienced, ¨do not go alone¨

Rating: Intermediate to advanced

Wind: West and north west

Good for: Freestyling

Located on the north shore of Auckland when going over the harbour bridge towards the shore it’s on your right hand side. To get there you need to go down lansdowne St until you get to the park. It gets really crowded in front of the sand bar, so if you are not very advanced, go to the left. Be careful with going down wind, the mud is quite deep!!

Waikanae Beach
May 272013

Level All Levels
Wind Direction Works NE to SW, but is very gusty in a W (do not kite if wind is coming directly from island) .
Location Kapiti Coast
The word: Recommended number 1 spot for learning and good for all when its on

Best wind link: http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=IWAIKANA1

Setting up and Launch

From Highway 1 turn left at the shops and follow the road to the beach. A road runs along the beach front and there are several car parks off to the side. This is a wide sandy beach at low tide but some sections are narrow (about 15m wide) at high tide. The best place to launch is the southwest end of the beach at the estuary. Almost guaranteed to meet other kiters if it is on.

On the Water

In a NW this is one of the first beaches that does not get badly affected by Kapiti Island. Picks up more swell than Paraparaumu and is onshore / cross-onshore for N, NW and W winds. The surf is normally messy but is a good place to start kiting in waves.
