Water Nomads Home

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

Make it the trip of a lifetime and do what you love  – windsurf, surf, SUP, kayak your heart out in one of the best multi-sport locations in the world! Let us take the logistics off your hands and provide you with premium gear, transport and resources – catered to your needs.

Get your hands on the latest SEVERNE and STARBOARD windsurf equipment and enjoy superb conditions without the hassle and risks of taking your own boards and rigs on a plane.

Take our modern freeride boards to uncrowded beaches and blast on flat-water around Auckland or the countless glassy lakes on the South Island with their breath-taking mountain backdrops. We also offer foilboards, so treat yourself even on low-wind days to taking in the world-renowned beauty of New Zealand. Or fight the elements in Wellington, one of the windiest cities in the world!  If you are an advanced wave sailor find beautiful waves in the Taranaki region on our multi-fin wave boards and wave SUPs.  

Grab one of our surfboards and shred world class point breaks or learn to surf on stunning sandy white beaches. 

Explore rugged coastlines on our rigid or inflatable SUPs and paddle to uninhabited islands in one of our seakayaks.

Furthermore, we offer guided windsurfing trips on selected dates to some of New Zealands best spots. Travel with a local, find the secret gems and never miss out on a session because you’re at the wrong spot for the conditions!

Being passionate about our sports, we want you to have the best experience in New Zealand.

 Yes, we are gear snobs here at Water Nomads, therefore we won’t rent anything that we wouldn’t use ourselves.  We believe you get more out of what you are doing if your kit is the bomb!

Renting windsurfing equipment outside of Auckland is next to impossible. You’d be relying on the generosity of locals or the odd shop to rent out their private equipment. Same goes for SUP or surfboards. If you want to take them with you and surf elsewhere you’re stuck.

That’s where WATER NOMADS come in.

How does it work? 

1.  You let us know your plans and specific gear needs.

2.  We organise all desired equipment for you here in New Zealand.

3.  You just get here, pick it up, take it with you on your trip for unlimited use and have the best time!

Please get in touch with us to get more information.
