One of the best kitesurfing spots in New Zealand is The Estuary in Canterbury. For best conditions, plan to visit this area at medium to high tide. Beginners who are looking for a great spot with shallow water and lots of space should consider a visit to Point Chevalier.
South Brighton Beach is located south of the Surf Club and is a great choice if you are looking for a kite beach with soft sandy conditions. Surfdale, on Waiheke Island, is an uncrowded location which is easily accessible by ferry from downtown Auckland. Tahuna Beach is a popular destination for kitesurfers and is located close to Nelson City.
