Big shout out to Shane, Paul and Team. I couldn’t have asked for a better start to the summer season then with Kitesurf Nelson. An old injury caused a few hurdles but with their help, knowledge and friendliness it’s gonna be a great kiting summer for a beginner like myself! Their coffee’s going down quite a treat too ;)
