Southern Lakes Windriders Club

Southern Lakes Windriders

Surf culture in the mountains - who knew kitesurfing on glacial lakes could be so much fun!


Let me take you to the South Island of New Zealand, where Queenstown and Wanaka are known for skiing, snowboarding and mountaineering. Imagine tall snow-cast mountains and massive glacial lakes, an ideal alpine wonderland where the wind blows often and the scenery is stunning. 

Southern Lakes Windriders Club is a Windsurf & Kitesurf club in the Southern Alps run exclusively by volunteers. It was a pleasure and a honour being part of this small but tight community of thick skinned, warm hearted kite & windsurf enthusiasts.
