Kitesurfing • Wing Foil • SUP ~ Nelson, New Zealand

Kitesurfing/  Kiteboarding, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and Wing Foil are the world’s fastest growing wind and water sports. They are easy to learn+ heaps of fun. If you want to have a go then you have come to the right place!!

Kitescool has been teaching thousands of keen people how to kitesurf since 2003. It´s a fantastic sport, using the wind and kites in combination with small boards to surf the water, do big jumps and fun tricks. Kitescool is the only kitesurfing school in the South Island, we are an affiliated IKO Centre and we are very lucky to teach mostly at Tahunanui Beach, Nelson, New Zealand’ s premier kitesurfing beach! We are mobile and use other beaches around the region including Marahau Beach in the Abel Tasman National Park – one of the worlds most beautiful Kitesurfing spots.

Stand Up Paddleboarding works in perfect combination with Kitesurfing and is lots of fun.  SUP is an exciting way to explore the water and beaches, even catch some waves. It´s a fun work-out! Mornings are generally ideal conditions for it and afternoons when the wind picks up we are blessed with perfect kitesurfing and wing foil conditions.

Wing Foil is the perfect combination of kitesurfing and Sup- slightly easier, more simple to learn than kitesurfing but you are still using the wind to glide over the water and there is less wind wind required to get going.

So really, we offer a sport for all wind conditions in the best learning environment!
