What you'll do

After arriving, we will look at the gear requirements and local surf conditions you are going to get and what you are most comfortable with.

We’ll settle you into your new environment, discus safety, instruction on gear and proper use - then take some time to get you relaxed and breathing steadily to fully rid yourself of whatever stresses you may have on the day of your adventure.

This is merely for you to be able to relax you to flow with the ocean and center yourself - to have the best and biggest possible smile, about what adventures awaits you.

Then we'll go out and have as much fun as possible - taking pictures for your friends and family to see and relate to the experience you are enjoying in a foreign land.

I can additionally arrange for a certified SUP instructor, for those wanting to get an initial 30 minute introduction session or for those interested in SUP Yoga - we can do that too.

Just let us know before hand, otherwise for those experienced - lets just go and have some fun.

We'll see what we can catch - from fresh food to waves - or doing a down-wind paddle from one side of the bay to the other.

I am extremely passionate about exploring our country's beautiful coastline.

Successfully I've guided clients all over the South Pacific Ocean for 14 years, getting to know the best spots, no matter what the conditions for activities like for example; surfing, fly fishing, SUP, or free-diving.

I also know my way around the land for when the conditions deteriorate or when my guests want to have a break to go experience close by coffee shops, restaurants or bars, keeping then entertained and happy.

Oh, and I absolutely love sharing my passion for catching and preparing my own fresh seafood from the sea.

Let me know if this appeals to you - so we can arrange it especially for you.

JP is the absolute best at what he does! Super knowledgeable about anything to do with the ocean, and can show u around all the must see spots in New Zealand! I did my research on him, as well as a few others for a paddle boarding experience, and after looking at his Instagram page @saltflylifestyles my decision was made! He’s a sponsored Fisherman/surfer, and has a lot of experience on the water. I like to surround myself around like minded people, and we connected right away! His vibe is contagious, and you are guaranteed to have an safe & amazing time. He offers a lot more than just paddle boarding and I’m looking forward to taking him up on those adventures as well! Give home a follow on IG, or better yet.... book your experience with him, and see for yourself!

Jp is such a cool, down to earth person that will walk you through paddle boarding for all skill sets. If you’re not that experienced (like myself) he doesn’t push you into uncomfortable limits & ensures that you learn at a good pace. Off the waters, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience where myself, my wife, Jp & his friend enjoyed a delightful picnic & just talked about life! I recommend this to everyone & would love to do it again soon🤙🏼
