Point Chevalier
July 202013

Located at the bottom of Walker Rd in Point Chevalier Rd.

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!

Wind direction: Anything from the west

Chalong Bay

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.

Rating: Beginner to advanced

Wind direction: Anything from the West

Tide: Mid tide and higher

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

Tide: Mid to low tide

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!!

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.
