Rotorua is an inland town so you won’t be surfing!

In summer there are such operations at

the Mount Maunganui Beach opposite

Tay Street. About an hours drive from

Rotorua. Note the fastest route involves

a toll road.

Is there whitewater kayaking in the area? We'll be there in March 2019. Not sure if there will still be good places in the fall. Thanks

People certainly do it in Chch but you’d have to Google for rental equipment. Most of the shops I’ve seen are just selling equipment.

Stand up paddle boarding is also growing in popularity. You can do that in Chch & in Akaroa.
