Save your money on buying a board, purchase a Pipi Membership instead!
Purchasing a stand up paddle board is expensive! If you have kids, is one SUP enough? Then you've got to consider a life jacket and maybe roof racks. Loading the gear can be a hassle along with all other stuff needed for your day at the beach!
Forget all that! Purchase a membership for you and your whānau, and just rock up to our beach station where all gear required for stand up paddling is available to you.
The Mauao SUP Club is made by locals for locals, to benefit from the well-being gained from being on the water.
The Pipi Membership is a seasonal subscription designed with families and friends in mind. It includes:
- Board and equipment provision for all members from our beach station.

Frequently Asked Questions
What equipment is provided? Everything you need for stand up paddling - board, paddle, leg rope and life jacket.
What if we register half way through the season? Your membership will roll on for one year from your registration. So once our season is over, you will be able to return the following season until your membership is up.
Do we all need to be there for the lesson? You get one lesson per group, so the more of you there, the more beneficial it will be for you all.
When can we book our lesson? Email us with a preferred date and time for your lesson and we'll go from there. firstname.lastname@example.org
What if we want equipment for longer than one hour? Have a talk to our beach station staff. If we're not busy, it's likely we'll stretch your time out longer.
Do we need to book? No need to book ahead. Just turn up when we're operating and you will receive the next available equipment. Remember we are weather dependent, so keep an eye on our Facebook page.
