Our stand up paddle boards can be used on flat water and in the surf!

Surf

Any of our surf spots are good however we would suggest a beach break such as Te Arai or Managwhai. Sometimes best to go somewhere a little less crowded.


Mangawhai Estuary
The best paddle boarding or kayaking experience is in the Mangawhai Estuary. Launch from the boat ramp, Alamar Cres, Mangawhai Heads or our favourite spot The Mangawhai Tavern Boat Ramp. Then you can always enjoy a drink or something to eat before or after. Don’t drink alcohol before, that’s unsafe!

2 hours each side of the high tide is best however you can launch from the boat ramp at anytime

Tomorata Lake
A popular spot for the locals especially when there is a strong onshore breeze as the lake is sheltered by a forest. Around the lake are a number of private sandy beaches you can create your base! Hire some of our beach gear for this. There sometimes can be a number of jet skiers and water sports enthusiasts on this lake however everyone is generally mindful of each other and everyone plays safe!
