Our Reviews

Heidi gave me excellent advice before I travelled over from England and recommended Lake Clearwater which is less than two hours drive from Christchurch. Water Nomads provided an excellent board and sails for my five days and there was wind every afternoon and beautiful surroundings. Heidi even sent me a video showing me all the boom and mast settings and downhaul rigging procedure. I hired a Bach via another website and went on my own whilst my wife played in a croquet tournament in Christchurch . I met friendly windsurfers on my first day and had an absolutely wonderful time.
I can’t recommend Water Nomads highly enough! Throughout the whole process from renting to delivering the equipment Heidi did above and beyond to help me by selecting the right gear for me after 14 years without been in the water, she even went out of her way to connect me with windsurfers in the area where I was going so I could feel at home. Thank you so much Heidi for all you have done and surely this was the first time working with you but certainly not the last!!!
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. I REALLY recommend Water Nomads for a windsurfing trip in order to use great equipment and also to avoid the airport pains because of carrying your own stuff.
