Had a great time with Heidi, bevan and crew in March 19. Wonderful accommodation in Oakura, excellent food throughout the weekend and the benefit of their knowledge of the area. Not as much wind n waves as hoped for, but still lots of water time on the SUP and a fun bump n jump windsurf session. The area is so special, I can't wait to go back!

Thank you Petersewell! You definitely scored the most water time of all of us. Thank you for coming on a true "Surfari" and sailing home to our accommodation with me :-) Looking forward seeing you on our TWC Warm-Up-Trip in October.

The easiest, most civilized way to get out windsurfing in Taranaki is to join a Water Nomads Taradise trip. All accommodation and food is arranged in advance in plush digs handy to the best windsurfing beaches. The food is brilliant; healthy and delicious.

Awesome people, awesome trip, awesome food. H & B are meticulous planners, so you can get on and enjoy your trip. Knowledgeable, friendly, entertaining and solid, reliable people you’ll enjoy hanging out with. If you value using top notch equipment alongside access to NZ-wide (superb) local knowledge, i’d definitely recommend you check out Water Nomads for quality, modern gear hire, and watersports trips in Aotearoa/nz.

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.
