Where can you sail

Aotearoa New Zealand has 16,000km of coastline, from stunning long sand beaches to wild rugged rocky stretches. There is a myriad of lakes to choose from in some of the worlds most stunning back drops. Whether you seek flat waters for freeriding or speed running, or rolling swell chasing, or epic wave breaks, we will help you find it.

Well known for its beautiful foiling and freeride conditions with its unbelievable clear water. Waves and swell riding can be found in stunning remote beaches. One of the best places off season (winter) as it is the ‘Winterless North’, mild water and air temperatures and the wind conditions are the most reliable.

New Zealand’s legendary wave mecca with 270° of open coastline to the Tasman Sea and Southern Ocean swells. With breaks that can find nearly any wind direction its rates as one of the best windsurfing locations in the world, offering genuine cross-off conditions.

Incredible foiling, be it wing-foil, wind-foil or classic windsurfing, the lakes offer pristine deep blue waters with regular summer thermal wind conditions. The water state can be buttery flat to long rolling swells, making speed runs, swell riding or down-winding all available in the preverbal stones throw…

Rarely ventured to other than by the small local windsurf and wing foil communities. The Southern Ocean wave riding scene is there to be explored. Colac Bay, Monkey Island all resinate in wave-riding folk law. Ideal for storm hunters!

A foiling adventure was what we had in the past week, expertly lead by Heidi and Bevan, who are great hosts and had organised a well oiled few days of watersports. The food was outstanding and it was a great experience to catch up with other like-minded people to enjoy some fun times foiling on a variety of craft. Always pleasant and hospitable, i recommend Water Nomads for a great adventure, wherever in NZ they are going.
