Surf Board Hire - 24 Hour

Snow and Surf are stoked to the best deal in town for surf board and wetsuit rental.

We offer a 24hr surfboard and wetsuit rental.

All our equipment is new this season, and we are offering high end epoxy surfboards for hire which are considered more responsive than the standard foam boards out there.

Our wetsuits are O'Neill and Roxy. We are one of the only companies offering a 24hr surfboard rental at these great prices!!

Most hire companies will give you a fixed hourly rate, but for a bargain price we are offering you a 24hr deal, so you can shoot up the coast to Kaikoura or down to Banks Peninsula or even just head out to Sumner for a 2hr surf , a coffee, another 2hr surf, lunch an evening surf, pub and an early morning surf the following day before you drop it back!

Choose the day you want:

Just select the day you'll be hitting the beach and book with us, then just come in before 10am on the day you have booked and we will get you kitted up!

Pick up

Our store is located on 85 Tuam street, Christchurch, and you can park at our door.

One days rental is based on a pick up on the morning of your hire before 10am, and drop off the following day before 10am.

No refund is offered in the unlikely event that you don't go surfing.

A copy of a credit card is taken for security purposes.

The hirer is solely responsible for the equipment and it must be returned in a satisfactory condition.

The price is for a wetsuit (Roxy or O'Neill) and a surfboard (including leash).

The booking date is the day of hire, - these dates are non transferable.

Additional fee of $10 will be charge if a soft rack is required to fit the surfboard to your car.

Price: $59

Surf fun

Quick and easy to pick up suits and boards. A range of sizes and boards to suit all abilities. They researched tides and where the surf was best for the day which was super helpful being a novice. We damaged a fin being useless beginners and they were really sympathetic with the small fee they charged to replace it. I will be renting suits and boards before we leave CC at the weekend.

Great price

I booked the day before and all went well. They didnt have any Medium sized wetsuit ready though so I had to make do with a wet one that was given back the same morning (clean but wet). It was ripped at the collar. The staff was friendly though. Thanks for a great opportunity to surf!

Dissatisfying experience

We rented two very nice surfboards and two mediocre wetsuits (a bit worn out, and two women’s suits instead of men’s+womens’s). The gear only was a 4* experience. However, the store does not have a procedure to block and release deposits on a credit card. The owner will ask you to leave your complete credit card information including the CVV number, allowing or anyone that gets a hold of these documents to perform arbitrary transactions on your account. This is a discouraged procedure (if interested, search for 'cvv in physical stores’). The alternative is to have a deposit of $500 per board charged on your credit card and refunded later. The problem compared to the standard procedure of blocking and releasing the money, at least for foreigners, is, that banks use different exchange rates for charging and refunding. For us the result was a $19 surcharge on a $70 NZD. In case you intend to question this procedure, be prepared to have to talk to the owner instead of the very friendly regular staff. Unfortunately, our experience was not that of factual but rather emotionally driven and at times disrespectful discussion.
