Marc Jacobs, New Zealand’s number one kiteboarder travels the world kiteboarding and competing on the international stage. Marc always looks forward to coming back home to New Zealand, kitesurfing and training in our majestic country, Aotearoa.
It’s always good coming home.
The welcoming mountain ranges.
The deep clean waters.
Rugged ridge lines rolling into deep canyons.
Carved out over centuries by immense glaciers.
Timeless glacier lakes.
Legends say that Rakaihautu the commander of the Uruao canoe dug these ancient lakes with his magical kāheru.
Tāwhirimātea the god of the wind blesses these ancient waters of Wakatipu.
When the wind rushes down the valleys you can still hear the war cries of ancient warriors echoing across the rivers.
This land has sculptured who we are today.
Aotearoa, New Zealand
Our land, Our home
