Water Nomads is New Zealand’s premium water sports rental specialist.

We cater for long term water sports rental including windsurfingSurf, SUP and Sea Kayak hire; thus provide you the opportunity to explore New Zealand.  Be like a local and don’t miss out on your favourite sport as you travel.

New Zealand with over 16,000km of beautiful, wild and remote coastline and countless lakes, offers premium conditions for all water sports and skills.  Find stunning white sandy beaches, rugged coastline, world class waves, and lakes with breath-taking mountain backdrops.

Renting windsurfing equipment outside of Auckland is nearly impossible.  You are relying on kind locals or the odd shop to rent out their private equipment. It is not much better when it comes to SUP or Surf boards. If you want to take them away and surf elsewhere, especially in the South Island, you will be  limited to the main centres.

Water Nomads resolves this – one hire – no fuss – no limits.  Just you, your gear, and endless possibilities to explore. Go find adventure and just have fun!

Why choose New Zealand as a destination for your windsurf holiday?

  • New Zealand is in the southern hemisphere.  With summer from December to April, this makes it an ideal winter escape destination for everyone from the Northern hemisphere.
  • Pacific Ocean on the East, Tasman Sea on the West, at least one of them is delivering.  Though there is plenty to discover and do even when there is no wind or waves.
  • Sub-tropical climate!  The northern parts of the country for windsurfing is very pleasant all year round.
  • Freeride and Wave spots for all skill levels in most regions.
  • Unspoiled and stunning coastline with unique and varied landscapes.
  • Uncrowded spots and friendly locals: most locals are pleased to share their spot and a beer with fellow windsurfers!
  • Windy Wellington, world class waves in Taranaki, wild sandy beaches tucked away in Northland and breath-taking backdrops throughout the South Island.
