Our Reviews

I came to New Zealand from Chile for a 2-month windsurf trip, and Water Nomads really helped me so much planning the journey and offering me high quality equipment! The were always available to answer my questions with kindness... even questions not direcrly related to windsurf, such as where to sleep or where to buy a car. Also, the prices for gear rental are very convenient and in extraordinary quality.
A great service to save you traveling with your gear. I rented foiling equipment from Water Nomads during my recent 5 week campervan trip in New Zealand. They even accommodated us picking up the gear in South island and dropping off on the North Island. Heidi & Bevan were very responsive and extremely helpful with spot suggestions, weather advice, and other travel tips. Highly recommend!
I've recently completed my first Water Nomads Surfari and it was fantastic. From the amazing accommodation, exquisite food and welcoming hosts it was simply brilliant. Their knowledge of the area and the conditions was first rate, their enthusiasm second to none and the atmosphere that it created made the long weekend very enjoyable. Highly recommend Heidi and Bevan as hosts and would love to join another trip in the future.
