  • It had been a rainy day when we arrived, but had cleared out by the time we got there. Luckily we were able to go, but the owner mentioned he had turned away lots of people that day due to weather conditions. With just a little instruction, you are off and flying. When the wind is high, you whip around the track. They have personnel out on the track to change courses for you to take advantage of wind shifts, so you never have to slow down. They have smaller sails for younger riders so that everyone can participate. I saw another reviewer mentioned a price that was higher than we paid. It was $30 for 30 minutes for the blocarts, but an extra fee if you wanted to do the drift carts as well. All in all a fun activity that I recommend for all ages.
  • Bset land-wind sailing ever Highest quality of fun!!!
  • Gr8 highly recommended if you're passing by or even if you are in Christchurch it takes 20"
  • Great fun and thrilling. Unfortunately our session was cut short due to windy & gusty conditions. Owners were safety conscious and gave full refund even though we did enjoy a good 10 minutes. Would go again and highly recommended.
  • Lots of fun. Easy to learn and very thrilling!
