We’ve just helped our friends Todd and Lee-Anne at Waka Abel Tasman get online with a new website design. They run a unique business leading waka paddling trips from stunning Kaiteriteri beach at the gates of the Abel Tasman National park. By paddling in their double-hulled (waka tuarua) or single-hulled outrigger canoes (waka ama), you share in New Zealand’s treasured heritage. Waka is an inclusive experience where everyone can feel the joy of working as part of a team.
Obviously this was a bit of passion project for Jan, being an avid waka paddler herself.
Lee-Anne and Todd are lovely people with a wonderful business. Here’s how Lee-Anne and Todd describe themselves:
Our family loves waka, the outdoors, tikanga Māori (correct Māori etiquette) and sharing these things with others. Our community is at the heart of what we do and we are passionate about uplifting rangitahi (young people) and supporting healthy lifestyles.
Check them out online https://wakaabeltasman.nz then get down to Kaiteriteri for a paddle, you won’t regret it.
