Covid-19 Level 3


Auckland is at Alert Level 3, the rest of New Zealand is at Alert Level 2 - windsurfing is permitted
The important thing for the windsurfing community is that this represents an opportunity to be recognised as our own responsible sport - lets not blow it.
If you are challenged by anyone please be kind, don't argue, just invite them to contact SportNZ or Maritime NZ to verify your right to be on the water.

This is guidance only - refer to the links at the bottom for the official information

• Water-based activities are discouraged where they would expose participants to danger or require search and rescue services.
• Water-based activities involving boats or motorised craft or equipment, or scuba diving are not allowed.
• Remain within your current abilities and don’t pick up new activities.
• Some water activities are possible. We recommend you remain within close range of the shore (no more than 200m away). These activities would include: swimming, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, windsurfing and paddle boarding but only when meeting the following guidance.
• You must: stay within your bubble, not share equipment, not gather with others (even with physical distancing), stay close to shore and only go out when conditions are calm.

• Water-based activities involving sailing boats, or motorised craft or equipment, or scuba diving are not allowed.

• Kite boarding and diving from rocks or bridges are discouraged, because these activities expose participants or other users to increased danger and may require complex search and rescue services.

How far can you drive to do a recreation activity?
You should drive as short a distance as you can, and still do the activity. You must stay local.
Your nearest recreational area could mean travelling to a neighbouring region if you live on a regional boundary, as long as this is still local and a close distance to your home. Travel to your nearest park or beach, not your favourite one.
