I got stuck in NZ with only my booties, after a long period away from the water with no windsurfing possibility whatsoever... I'm based in Samoa and just got so used to going out for a spin whenever I have a couple of hours free ahead. Not being able to do so was just driving me insane. I decided to put an end to it. After contacting WATER NOMADS and explaining Heidi my situation, not only I was able to hit the water again, with short notice, but with some of the best gear I had never tried as well (Dyno 95 thruster). Thanks WATER NOMADS for putting together everything: transportation, local spot advice, performing gear... . All it took me was a phone call and you gave your all to save my soul. You are truly passionate about watersports and know to how to put yourselves into other Windsurfers' (foot) straps. Can't wait to catching up again !

Hi Ben, it was awesome to meet you and go sailing with you! And to see your smile after 9 months off the water. Glad we could help. Hope to meet you again, either here on one of our Surfaris or in Samoa when that whole Covid-thing is over :-)

Review of: Surfari Taranaki
The accommodation was spectacular, right on the beachfront with amazing views over Oakura beach. The food was plentiful and yummy as well as healthy; a rare combo in my experience. But the best was the classic, down the line wavesailing conditions that Taranaki regularly throws up. An unforgettable trip.

I joined Water Nomads for the mid winter trip north to Coopers Beach and Rangiputa and had a great time. Heidi and Bevan know all the spots for windsurfing, foiling and wing-foiling. Great food and accommodation provided - thanks again.

Review of: Surfari Taranaki
For insider info on all the breaks and conditions this surfari is a must! However, the excellent accommodation, food and social aspects make this surfari an unforgettable NZ experience. Looking forward to the next one ... wherever the venue ... ;0)
