Overview

Far away from everything, on the tip of the South Island! Wind isn’t a problem, but the temperature might be! The spot is also well known between surfers. The spot can be a blessing if you like waves!

Colac bay is pretty remote “at the end of the world”, for more things head to Riverton.

Dangers

Surfers

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
