KITESURFING LOCATIONS AUCKLAND & MATAKANA

 

Blue Adventures runs kitesurfing lessons in the Auckland and Matakana Coast region depending on wind direction, tides and your plans. All of our favourite kiteboarding locations are situated on beaches, which offer shallow and flat waters- this makes them perfect to learn kitesurfing. Our favourite spots are Snells Beach and Omaha, which offers ultimate learning conditions. Snells Beach and Omaha are located 60 kms north of Auckland and are easily reached by bus or car. Local pick-ups from the Warkworth bus stop or any other location on the Matakana Coast are available. Do you want to learn kiteboarding in Auckland? No problem! We are also running kitesurfing lessons closer to the city! Some of the spots we visit most frequently are:

SNELLS BEACH (MATAKANA COAST)

Where?

Located on the Matakana Coast, Snells Beach is easily reached within one hour north of Auckland CBD (60 kms). Snells Beach is one of th best spots to learn kite surfing in New Zealand. 

Why?

Snells beach is a hidden gem! Steady wind, shallow, flat and clear water and an uncrowded beach makes Snells beach a perfect kiteboarding location for our kitesurfing lessons. On most days you will be one of only a couple of kiteboarders out! Yes- its that good!

 

Wind conditions?

Snells beach is great on North/East, East and South/East winds. The best time to kite is at mid tide but all tides are kite-able. 

OMAHA LAGOON (MATAKANA COAST)

Where?

Situated 60 kms north of Auckland CBD Omaha is easily reached within one hour from Auckland CBD. Our Omaha surf shop is located at the Omaha Lagoon.

 

Why?

The Omaha estuary is a flat water gem! The estuary is a great place for our kite surfing courses as the water is shallow and the launching and landing zone uncrowded. 

 

Wind conditions?

Kite-able in all wind directions but W are very gusty. The Omaha estuary is the only spot in the Matakana area that works on South/West winds. The best time to kite surf is at mid- high tide.
