Anyone done any sup tours at the above places ?
Any recommendations even just hire/secret spots etc
I live in Auckland- and have done a day sup tour up north near the bay is islands.
What kind of supping are you wanting to do? Surf, touring, general?
Thanks! Just general... ive only got into it this summer but going to nz next month. And would like to do it there
I will only have kind of half days free though.
supbro tours do a cool
tour of the poor knights islands up north but not cheap.
You could paddle around mission bay in Auckland and hire a sup around there (maybe fergs), or takapuna beach
Search "paddle at the pear tree" on Facebook and have a chat with them.
To add....that's for around Kerikeri/Bay of Islands. In Auckland the best spot IMHO is on Waiheke......but I would say that. I think you can only hire inflatys out there tho.
Ocean Culture in Takapuna (Auckland) are great to deal with, and the paddling around Takapuna is pretty good if you like harbour paddling. Supshed in Orewa (north Auckland) also hires a range of sups, and the beach there can be fun for a first time surf if there is something around (generally small).
Supcentre in Newmarket hires as well, although they are not close to the water. There are probably a few other options I haven't mentioned, but should come up on google.
Have a good trip!
