Kite Surf Nelson is owned by Shane & Sue Anderson.

Shane started kiting in Nelson in 2000 and finished in the top 8 riders in the 2007 NZ Nationals. He has kited throughout NZ, in Europe and the South Pacific. He has a great technical understanding of the sport and can provide good insight into what equipment will suit you and help you progress onto the next level. Whatever style of riding you’re into, Shane will have some advice on how to get the best out of your gear.






Sue got into kiting in the UK in 2002. She was one of the first IKO qualified instructors in New Zealand and has taught kitesurfing in the UK and here, so knows all about the learning curve as you progress from just getting riding to boosting your first jumps and heading into the waves. She is a regular contributor to Wind&Kite magazine, offering advice ranging from gear set-up and selection to learning new moves, all aimed at the size, shape and strength of women.







Romain Guibard is our Senior Instructor for the 2009/10 season. Rom, or Frenchie, is an IKO Level 2 Instructor, with teaching experience in New Zealand, France and Egypt, and has ridden all over the world. We brought him all the way over from France to teach for us, which is testament to his expertise and professionalism. He has a relaxed and easy-going approach to his teaching, but will ensure that you get all the safety information and coaching points you need to get riding safely and quickly.
