      Planche magique, rapide réactive
      Stabilité tout à fait correcte pour une largeur de 25.75
      Poids env. 10.5 - 11 kg
      Etrave effilée qui fend l'eau
      Aileron efficace mais de facture très inférieure à la planche, je vous conseille de le changer pour un carbone

      Since this spot includes a variety of Lakes I had rated it based on some sort of average score. All lakes are pretty easily accessed from the highway, township or via a gentle and very well maintained gravel road (Ohau/Middleton). From Tekapo you can launch from the town, or easily from around the lake where there are multiple other spots to park. Pukaki is probably the trickiest one as it's bordered by the highway pretty much all around but there is a boat ramp somewhere near a power station (to check I read it somewhere but can't find it anymore), there is also a picnic spot by the highway with a wee beach (see photo) which might be the easier access. Ruataniwha is the most user friendly one as it is a rowing/water-skiing lake used for competitions. I have not yet been there but there is a rental company there -the only one I believe in the area, so unless you have your own gear this might be the only place you can hire a board. From the campsite at Lake Middleton you can launch right from your tent spot (literally) there is a wee beach and boat ramp (grass patch type) and a short walk across the road will take you to a similar access for Lake Ohau. The region is very touristy and gets very busy over the summer months. Be aware of motor-boats (and hesitant tourists staring at the landscape more than focusing on the road :@ ). The small townships of Lake Tekapo and Twizel have basic shops cafes/petrol/mini-mart but if you're coming through from a bigger city it is a good idea to do your groceries shopping there beforehand. As with almost anywhere else in NZ the weather around this part of the country can change very quickly so never trust a sunny morning to last all day. The wind can become very strong very quickly so always check the forecast, gear up accordingly and be true to your abilities. {Sadly accidents do happen even on a lake, and there have been some fatalities including people kayaking on Lake Tekapo. } ----- ------ Since Didymo (a freshwater parasite) is present in the South Island rivers/waterways make sure you follow the Check-Clean-Dry procedure if you paddle from lake to lake or river, more info here => http://www.mpi.govt.nz/travel-and-recreation/outdoor-activities/check-clean-dry/

      I have never been soooooo gutted NOT to have my board with me (which for logistical reasons was not possible this time) !!! :'( But this 3 day trip down to the Southern Lakes was definitely a location scouting for the upcoming Xmas holidays =) The beautiful MacKenzie & Waitaki Districts in Southern Canterbury are the gateway to the Southern Lakes which are world renown for their ever turquoise waters. Lake Tekapo is a very busy tourist resort but there is a campground right by the lake. Lake Pukaki sits below Mt Cook, the highest mountain in NZ and offers one of the most scenic drives in the country with the highway bordering it almost all around. Lake Ohau is slightly out of the main ways and right at the bottom of Ohau Ski Area and Lake Middleton is the baby of the group right by Ohau and has a Department of Conservation campsite with a little beach right on its shore. The first 3 are moraine-dammed lakes, created when the former glaciers that used to sit there receded. Their color is due to the water still coming from the alpine glaciers. There is also a more recreational lake called Ruataniwha right outside of the town of Twizel. It takes about 1h (likely more on a busy summer day) from Lake Tekapo to Lake Ohau. The area was made famous in Lord of the Rings and it certainly feels like hobbits might pop up on the side of the road as you are driving around =) Great for a 3 day trip from Christchurch, could definitely spend a lot more time down there as the scenery is purely magical (and also world-famous for its pristine clear night skies classified as an International Star Reserve). If you come visit NZ I would definitely recommend the Southern Lakes as a SUP destination =)
