Bevan and Heidi organised excellent shared accommodation for the group. We all travelled down individually so I could do my own thing as well but the main purpose of the trip was an introduction to wave sailing and they were spot on with where to go, providing valuable wind and tide information - important to know on this wild and rocky coast. They were super helpful and the food was excellent, especially the packed lunches supplied by a local windsurfer. Thanks for a great trip guys.

Super friendly and helpful when it comes to everything about windsurfing in the North Island. I fully recommend Water Nomads if you want to have a water sport holiday in New Zealand.

NZ has many great spots to windsurf. Heidi and Bevan know about these spots and sail there themselves. They can access excellent up to date gear to suit conditions and ability. It helps that they are genuinely keen to make sure you have an all-round awesome holiday!

I came to New Zealand from Chile for a 2-month windsurf trip, and Water Nomads really helped me so much planning the journey and offering me high quality equipment! The were always available to answer my questions with kindness... even questions not direcrly related to windsurf, such as where to sleep or where to buy a car. Also, the prices for gear rental are very convenient and in extraordinary quality.

I REALLY recommend Water Nomads for a windsurfing trip in order to use great equipment and also to avoid the airport pains because of carrying your own stuff.
