WESTERLY WINDS  
POINT CHEVALIER (Central Auckland)

Located at the bottom of Walker Rd off Point Chevalier Rd.

This beach it’s great for beginners, quite shallow and plenty of space. Plenty of grass to set up your kite. The wind it’s a bit gusty at times but a preferred location for many because is only 10 minutes away from central Auckland. Be aware of the safer launching areas, on high tide do it on the little sandy beach on the left hand side, in front of the park. On a lower tide, try to do it right next to the water, stay away from the park, houses and the motorway!!!

Rating: Beginner to advanced

Wind direction: Anything from the west

Tide: All tides work but better from mid to high tide.

Good for: Learning, free ride, freestyle.

 
MEOLA REEF (Central Auckland)

Located at the bottom of Garnet Rd.

This place is awesome for freestyle but with one big problem, it’s full of Oysters!! Our recommendation is to go there on low tide and have a good look around to get familiar with the place.

The launching can be a bit hard to as in a high tide there is no beach to launch from so you would have to drift launch. If you are not experienced, ¨do not go alone¨

This bay offers great shallow flat water kiting on a mid tide as the sandbar forms a lagoon close to the beach.

This beach offers great shallow flat water and hard packed sand at a mid to low tide which is great for beginners however on a high tide the water level is easily overhead height and it can become quite choppy so beginners you are best to kite her on a mid to low tide and intermediate to advanced riders JUMP that Chop!!

In summer the beach is pretty packed with swimmers and as the beach is DOC protected and run make extra caution to respect the other beach goers and keep the peace.   Winter is prime time to kite at this beach as it is almost deserted.

Rating: Beginner to advanced, If you are a beginner make sure you go on a mid to low tide.
