About Us

Welcome to Watercooled Sports Ltd.

Founded in 1989 our aim has always been to encourage people to participate in water-sports on the many excellent waterways that surround us. Today our main focus is on windsurfing, wing foiling, kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding and paddleboard surfing together with all the accessories that might be required. We also carry a large range of ski and snowboard rental boards and boots for hire plus have a large selection of snow chains for hire. Right through winter we have a full ski tuning workshop to get your gear maxing on performance once you get up onto the ski fields.

To make participation as rewarding as possible, quality gear correctly fitted to the customers exact needs is the best way . As we import direct, or deal directly with New Zealand manufacturers this can be achieved with good value for money.

We enjoy all water-sports and would love to introduce you to the enjoyment they provide.
