Raglansup logoStand up paddleboarding is the fastest-growing water sport in the world right now and Raglan’s calm, flat waters are the perfect place to give it a go.

Paddleboarding is a cross between surfing and kayaking but requires far less physical and technical ability. It’s an amazing full-body workout that helps improve core strength, cardio fitness, balance and flexibility with minimal impact, and it’s suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. It’s also a highly enjoyable way to soak up Raglan’s spectacular scenery.

At Raglan Watersports, we offer a number of ways to help you discover paddleboarding. Hire a board and paddle the water at your own pace, or join us for a guided cruise and let us show you the harbour’s most hidden secrets. We also offer paddleboarding cruises along the mighty Waikato River.

If you’re a complete beginner, a lesson with one of qualified instructors will have you up and paddling like a pro in no time, or maybe you’re ready to step up and give paddle surfing a go?

Looking for an insanely-fun challenge for corporate team-building events, hen parties or birthday celebrations? Then hire our super-sized XL Ride board, which can carry up to 10 people at once!

However you decide to experience paddleboarding, our friendly, professional instructors and extensive knowledge of Raglan’s waterways will ensure you love every minute.
