Waterbourne is New Zealands premier extreme water sports event bringing kitesurfing, windsurfing and stand up paddleboarding together at one ideal location.  With a market, live music and performances, Waterbourne is the place to be this Easter.  Waterbourne will also be the home of the Starboard Paddle for Hope, so come down and be a part of the fun.


With the fresh green sea flowing into the evergreen wild bush, Eastbourne will be the home of New Zealand’s most exciting stand up paddle racing. From the ‘Paddle for Hope’ to the ‘Waterbourne Ocean Clash’ competitors of all ages and abilities are encouraged to come down and be apart of this exciting event.

SUP racers will have the option to enter a variety of racing types including sprints, technical races, long distance and relays (for charity) for one simple entry fee. With the event base in Eastbourne, Bishop Park, we will have the option to run racing from Petone if winds limit the racing, however, we expect to hold racing from the event base for the duration of the event.
