Overview

Fergusson Park is the main kiteboarding location for Tauranga kite Schools and Kiteboarders, kite setup, launching/landing, pack down area is the big grass area on the left had side as you drive into the park. One of the best things about Fergusson park is that you are able to kiteboard here in every wind direction except for a Southey wind.
– Please choose your kite size carefully as the wind can be stronger on the water than in the grass area.
– Stay a safe distance from other park users: Swimmers, Boats, Windsurfers etc.
– Watch out for kite instructors teaching, you may have your kite under control but new kiteboarding beginners won’t.
– Watch out for New Kiteboards that have finished their lessons give them room remember they are still learning.
– When you come in from kiting place your kite up by the houses and roll up your lines so the grass area is free for other kiters to set up their gear to head out kiting.
