Next to fun is safety the most important aspect of kitesurfing. Make sure you always talk to locals on the beach before you go on the water. The New Zealand kitesurf community can be pretty small and not every moment of the day there will be kitesurfers at the spot you want to kite. The fastest way to be in contact with the locals is through Facebook groups. Don’t be shy, these guys are awesome and happy to help you!
Below is a list of Facebook groups you could join to get in contact with the local kitesurfers of that area.
