Uncover one of Auckland's lesser-known waterways by paddleboard and foot with PaddleFit Pro Coach and ISA SUP Instructors Victoria Stuart and Helen Blair.

We'll start with a guided warm up walk/run of the trail around Orakei Basin, across the bridges and boardwalk while water skiers perform for a comp. At 12pm we'll gear up to Stand Up Paddle across the old volcanic crater lake and under the bridges of Orakei Creek, past nesting shags and up to a hidden waterfall.

The walk or run is optional, and you can choose to start your adventure with the paddle at 12pm if you wish.

Suitable for all levels of paddler and great team training for upcoming multisport and adventure races.

Newcomers to SUP will be expertly guided by our certified instructors, with a 15min skills session and warm up before we head off.

Experienced paddlers, this a great chance to meet some like-minded people and improve your own skills and technique in a relaxed group environment.

We’ll also have some @SeaCleaners blue bags with us to collect any trash we find along the way.

As with all outdoor activities, you will need to come prepared for a change in weather, so bring warm layers of merino or thermal clothing and a light rain jacket. The sea is still pretty warm, so it is mostly windchill that will affect us.

Please bring water (either by Camelbak or we can attach a water bottle to your board), and snacks.

All paddlers need to wear a PFD and a leash (supplied with rental boards). Bring a towel and change of clothes, your sneakers and socks. We'll come back to base before starting the trail, so no need to bring your shoes on the board.

We'll be monitoring the weather closely to make sure conditions are suitable, although part of the adventure sometimes is getting out amongst the elements, so expect to still go in light rain and wind of up to 15knots.

Boards provided or bring your own. Group discount of 20% for 3 or more paddlers.

Spaces limited so please register your interest as soon as possible.
