The Auckland blokart Club is currently based at Ardmore Airport in Takanini, Auckland. When the winds and tides are suitable we love to hit the local beaches around Auckland, or to travel up to 90 Mile Beach for a long weekend. For other venues around New Zealand, check out the New Zealand blokart Association website.
Good firm sand, perfect for a SW wind. The club has had more luck there over the last couple of years than Karioithai. Please remember to following the Muriwai Rules
Worth the extra 30 minutes drive past Owera for a smoother wider beach perfect for a NE wind.
A black sand beach, with a decent run down to the Waikato River in a SE wind.
Ninety Mile Beach
A good 4 hour drive north of Auckland rewards with a golden sandy beach, while not 90 miles long is more than long enough for plenty of fun land sailing. The club organises two long weekend trips away up here a year, for a great social weekend staying at Ninety Mile Beach Holiday Park. We haven’t missed any sailing up here due to lack of wind, and if its NE we just head on over to Tokarau Beach.
Only 20 minutes drive from camp at Ninety Mile Beach Holiday Park, Tokarau is great for the NE winds. As the tides are earlier at Tokarau, we have been known to sail Tokarau in the morning and 90 Mile in the afternoon. Current favorite spot is the end of Dick Urlich Road
