One of the beauties of living on a island is that you are never too far from the sea and there are plenty of other large bodies of water in some of the most beautiful areas of the country, meaning that anyone can learn how to get about in the water. There are plenty of people who are happy to just watch the waves crash on the shore or enjoy the babbling of a river as they eat a picnic on its banks, but some people just can’t resist the urge to get their feet wet, and it is those people that we had in mind when we put together our range of water-based experience gifts.
For those who like to get wet and wild, there are plenty of exciting ways to take to the water - you can try your hand at some of the classic watersports such as surfing, wind surfing and waterskiing. You can learn how to stay safe in the water and pick up the basic skills you need to master standing up on the surface of the water, feel the exhilaration of catching your first wave, and your instructor will give you hints and tips on how to keep your balance. For those who are all about the sheer speed of watercraft, we have plenty of activity days which will give you a chance to try out the most exciting ways to travel.
The classic jet bike has become a familiar sight in modern waters, so if you’ve always wanted to see how it feels to scoot through the water at high speeds then this could be your chance. For those who like to be on the cutting edge of water transport, the zego is New Zealand’s latest contribution to extreme water craft - a powerful catamaran which is easy to handle, fast and fun and even beginners can perform impressive tricks.
These exciting water-based birthday gift ideas are perfect for anyone who likes to feel the thrill of the waves beneath them, and whatever their vehicle of choice they can feel the wind in their hair.
