About Leap

Leap is a platform connecting people with businesses renting outdoor sports equipment and providing trips, guides, lessons and transportation
Stand up paddle

Leap was born out of years of exploring foreign countries and experiencing frustration when trying to find and book activities, be it skiing in the Dolomites, downhill mountain biking at Whistler, or kayaking in the Abel Tasman.

Sometimes we figured it out.

Sometimes there were tears of disappointment
(well, James cried).

These experiences galvanised our mission to solve this problem, starting in our home country, New Zealand.

Our Mission

To help people discover, access and enjoy our great outdoors by making the journey to rent outdoor equipment and book services as simple as possible
