SUP (stand-up pad­dle board­ing) is pop­u­lar world­wide and Matakana is no ex­cep­tion. If any­thing, the town was ahead of the trend. Tony and Nina from Blue Ad­ven­tures of­fer SUP lessons for be­gin­ners and ad­vanced pad­dlers, as well as tours and hire for ex­pe­ri­enced users. Be pre­pared for sore legs, but the fun makes up for it. Blue Ad­ven­tures also of­fers wake­board­ing and kitesurf­ing lessons for those keen to get some air. All guides and in­struc­tors are fully qual­i­fied and safety is a pri­or­ity so vis­i­tors are in ex­cel­lent, ex­pe­ri­enced hands. Feel­ing like a pro af­ter a les­son? Blue Ad­ven­tures also has an on­line store, ready to ship the es­sen­tials to the new­ly­con­verted. Lessons are of­fered every day dur­ing sum­mer, and there are sev­eral lo­ca­tions in Auck­land, Matakana and Man­gawhai. It closes in win­ter so it pays to check on­line first. 331 Omaha Flats Road, Point Wells (just be­fore the bridge),
