We have travelled the world kitesurfing, and the best place we ever found to kitesurf is the Karikari Peninsula at the top of New Zealand. So we set up a kitesurfing school here, and escape the UK winter each year. Flat water locations for racing, tricks and learners and waves for playing. With beaches facing every wind direction and wind most days it is a fantastic kitesurfing location.
The variety of conditions, locations and equipment we have in New Zealand, combined with the amount of kiteable days, gives the opportunity to gain a range of experiences in a period of weeks or months that might take years to achieve elsewhere. The perfect place for a kitesurfing holiday!
Immerse yourself in kitesurfing and beach life. At kite camp we can take you forward from whatever level you have reached - whether you are an absolute beginner, already a kitesurfer wanting to improve your skills, try new disciplines, or nail a new trick. Or if you just want to get out there and play.
For beginner students, we will be in the water with you right by your side for your first sessions, and then as you become more independent and are up and riding, we will be there coaching you from the beach and on the water as and when you need it.
Design your own package at Kitecamp, or see how you go when you are here. Lessons/hire are as per our Learn to Kitesurf rates, and accommodation is available at Rangiputa Beach from $60 per night per person.
The added benefit of being part of kite camp, is that you are on the spot when the wind comes, so we can really make the most of it, and if there isn’t enough wind you can be busy surfing, SUPing, snorkelling, working out in our woodland gym or just chilling out on the beach. There is always a great mix of people and you can choose to keep yourselves to yourselves, or join in camp life.
It’s great fun, and a great experience living off grid, staying in either a glamping tent or converted container, eating outside under the stars every night.
We ask for a deposit to confirm your place at kite camp, with the balance due on arrival, or in instalments as arranged depending on the length of your stay.
We will try and refund any deposits for cancellations made in advance of your stay, as long as we haven't turned away other bookings and then are unable to fill your place.
