I can not rate the Blue adventure kite camp enough. I loved it so much that I immediately booked in to attend their following one. Everything is great, from the beautiful house you stay in, to the delicious BBQ, to the hours and hours you get on the water. There's always a lovely bunch of people to share your kiting... More

Just 50 mins north of Auckland is Omaha beach where we spent 2.5 hours touring the Whangateau harbour. In the week prior Nina provided updates on the weather so we knew what to expect on the day. On arrival we where issued with lifejackets, a long board and a paddle. The swell was near perfect (dead flat) and our hosts... More

Had a great time on the first day with kite... second day was without wind so we got a crack at sup and wake boarding. Staff made it just awesome. Well worth the money

This is a really fun long weekend, you can't not have a blast, I saw several of the people from the camp again yesterday and was amazed again how much all of us had improved in such a short time. I can't think of a faster way to learn than 4 days of continuous time on the water. Highly recommended!

We had an awesome kite camp in Omaha, kiting 3 out of the 4 days on Snells beach, and wakeboarding and SUPing the other day. It was a great experience for all levels of kiters, 3 great instructors working with 8 of us gave plenty of one on one time. Accommodation for the camp was amazing, 5 star! BBQ night... More

Took lessons with Tony, it was awesome. First time kite boarding. Had booked Omaha, but wind was better in Pt Chev/Auckland (and much closer for us), so he offered to meet us in Point Chev instead which was very accommodating. Thanks Tony, you'll see us again :-))

I had never been kiting before so saw this camp as the perfect opportunity to learn the sport, see if I like it, and make some likeminded friends. I was a bit worried that I would slow down everyone else but Tony, Nina and their team were very patient and well organised. We often had one instructor to two people... More
