Hire Paddleboard - SUP

Paddleboarding with Kaikoura Kayaks NZ

Introducing the Nalu!

Kaikoura Kayaks also hire out paddle boards for you to enjoy our aquatic wonderland with the versatility of either sitting on top or standing up.

Nalu means “wave” in Hawaiian and drawing from its Hawaiian heritage, the name combines the best of surfing with the best of kayaking into one user friendly stand-up-paddle board (SUP).

Paddle boards promote balance, strength and general fitness and are especially great fun catching the swells and whitewater surf off the Kaikoura coast either sitting or standing up and are great for surfers or non-surfers alike.

Hybrid SUP's are highly maneuverable and much tougher than a composite board.

SUP's move swiftly across the water making longer distances at reach than a surfboard for instance.

Stand up paddle surfing

Recreational SUP's provide a great full body workout and is perfect for the entry level to intermediate stand up paddler.

It specifically provides an isometric workout that strengthens your core muscle groups while giving you a fun and exciting way to view the natural surroundings and marine life.

SUP Hire includes all equipment, communications, full instruction on the paddle strokes required and guidance on how to use them safely. Then we will set you up in the best area for stand up paddling on the day.

We can meet you at the beach with your SUP or drop at your door!
