What you'll do
To start, I will familiarise you with the equipment paddleboarding techniques and relevant safety procedures. You will learn how to paddleboard as we will go cross Lake Rotoiti to Manupirua Springs hotpools where is access only from the water. This is a 4km paddle that takes approximately 50 minutes . With every minute you spend on water your skill level will increase. Lake Rotoiti is a sheltered lake so is more often clear and rather calm- excellent for paddleboarding. During our trip we have spectacular views over the Lake, clear water , possibly lake inhabitants such as fish, ducks and black swans. Our destination is the "Manupirua Hot Springs "a uniquely " Kiwi experience", one of the areas best kept secrets. While they are not too commercial, they have everything you need onsite ,including changing rooms, toilets, BBQ facilities and picnic tables. The pools have 6 hot pools to choose from with different temperatures for 25NZD per person. We stay here about 1 hour, enjoying the pools and having a provided picnic before we head back to Te Karaka bay on our paddleboards .
I have been passionate about watersports since 2000, when I started my windsurfing experience. After 3 years I switched to kitesurfing this is easear in terms of handling gears well as being of the most beautiful water sports. 3 years ago I became immersed in paddleboarding and want to share this with you. So I have one love for calm days and another for when it is windy. I teach people how to learn kitesurfing as well Sup as I hold an International Kiteboarding Organization Certificate. When there is no wind I paddleboard at Papamoa beach, Mt Maunganui or on one of the manu beautiful lakes around Rotorua . These are some of the most beautiful places I have seen in the world. I would like to share them to others.
