Connect with like-minded ladies who share the love of the outdoors

Join us for a weekend of paddling, yoga & time in nature, in the beautiful Golden Bay with lots of fun and laughs along the way. You’ll leave feeling connected to some awesome wahine, restored & with some incredible memories of our time together.

Taking place at the stunning Tata beach with our friends at Golden Bay Kayaks, we will share our love of the moana together. Under the guidance, experience and knowledge of our Team Moana & Golden Bay Kayak crew, the weekend includes guided group paddles exploring the beauty of Golden Bay – the white sandy beaches and clear blue waters. Plus we will develop our SUP skills and confidence on our boards too with some tailored coaching on the water.

To get us feeling even more relaxed and to stretch out our bodies, our weekend also includes a guided yoga session with Debora from Bay Yoga, an evening meal of shared kai (bring a dish) & some free time for you to explore the wonders that Golden Bay has to offer.

Feeling a little nervous about joining us?

We welcome wahine with ALL paddling experience, from complete beginners to more seasoned paddlers. Most of us arrive as strangers and leave the weekend as friends.

So don’t worry about coming if you are a new paddler, you will be welcomed with open arms! However, you will get the most out of the weekend if you are able to paddle comfortably on your board two hours at a time. So if you would like to develop your skills on the water first, why not book a paddleboarding lesson with us by emailing [email protected] to get you feeling confident!

We can’t wait to see you on the beautiful white sand!
