The Te Paki Stream sand dunes, just south of Cape Reinga, Northland, is a natural sandboarding fun park.
Grab anything hard and flat (boogie board, old real estate sign etc..) climb the dunes and have fun!
Be careful to lock your car as this place is a notorious place for crafty local thieves that lay in wait in the nearby bushes.

The sand dunes are amazing! The walk up them is hard work but we had a ball going down. You can rent a board on site for $15 if you don’t have one and the Māori couple renting boards were really friendly, we had a great chat with them!
A must do and see for every tourist. Loved it.

Fun, cheap, only have to pay to hire a board, $15. No time limit and amazing scenery!
The sand dunes are incredible. But go with your own smooth bottom board. The rental people on site in the car park are expensive and unfriendly. Otherwise great fun had by all.

Very nice activity! Lots of fun with the board, only con is that the boars is $15 and you are tired after 3 times.
An awesome place to visit the north of the North Island. Some nice tracks around it, good camping places and you are able to go sandboarding.

Surf down huge sand dunes and enjoy an amazing view between the sea, the sand dunes and the forest.
It was awesome, the weather was terrible, but the view was still beautiful.
Rent a board for $10 and have fun sliding down massive sand dunes.
We rented the sandboards a bit outside of the sand dune area - because renting at the spot closes at 5pm. The sandboarding itself was first a bit scary, but after some training on baby hills, we enjoyed the speed a lot - definitely recommendable.
Funny activity, you can try some tricks with the board if you are brave enough. Really sandy, some cleaning facilities would be nice.
Great few hours at the dunes. Great fun.
Especially the sand dunes itself were breathtaking because they were just like placed into the green bush. Also, the boarding down the dunes was nice - you have to stand up!
