Information about Waionui Lagoon, what's done there and who does it
Kite Surfing - freestyle, just cruising
Shallow tidal lagoon behind the sand dunes of Muriwai Beach, sailable 1-1.5 hours before/after high tide, longer (always?) in the channels. The sand dunes are fairly low and do not obstruct the wind. Great flatwater spot with grass rigging.
The drive from Auckland is 1.5 hours on highway 16. Take Parkhurst Rd on the left just before Helensville and continue on South Head Rd which is sealed all the way till Trig Rd on the left, then follow the lagoon signposts. Military training area, lots of warning signs. Metal road, no 4x4 needed.
