Just ordered ours from them also!

Just a thought, good idea to take a key pouch if you have one to carry money etc in as we will do downwinders to Cauipi lagoon and get a drink there and need to pay for taxi back

I phoned them up before ordering and was assured they had plenty in stock. They called me back a little while ago to say they'll have to order it in (!!!) but I'll definitely have it on Thursday - we shall see..

I guess another option is to load up a FairFX card and get the cash from atms when over there.
I think the rate is still pretty reasonable and up to £500 a day?

Just spoke to them - they said their suppliers have confirmed the order will be with them today and I'll definitely have it tomorrow. Sounds pretty hopeful but then I was previously told they definitely have plenty in stock and wouldn't need to order from their suppliers..

If a few can pack a couple of roof ties it would be handy, keep them near to hand as would be useful at airport but we will need them mainly when we get the 4x4's
Another of our previous trips to the area.

Isn't having no kite bags at all going to be bit of a pain? I was thinking of taking at least two..

If you like your kites I'd def take at least one kite bag, remember they will be thrown in the back of pickups/buggies etc
We also cant take the "big travel board bags" when we head up the coast as the pickup would be fully laden and a walking advert to rob us!

Yup. I ended up chucking one proper one in. All kites are in their own lightweight ripstop bags.
