Athlete News - Tim Waller

Manuka Performance is proud to announce our first Athlete Sponsor - Tim Waller

My name is Tim Waller and I’m a 22 Year Old Sprint Kayaker/Ocean Ski Paddler and Quantity Surveyor. I’ve been paddling since I was 14 and started out with the local surf club and then joined up with the kayak club when I realised kayaking was at the Olympics. My ultimate goal is to represent New Zealand at the Olympics and I am currently aiming for the 2024 Olympics.

When I’m not paddling or in the gym I’m studying. I’m currently studying at Massey University, doing a Bachelor of Construction Majoring in Quantity Surveying. I compete in a wide range of categories under kayaking, I do Sprint Kayaking, Marathon Kayaking, Surf Life Saving and Ocean Ski Paddling.

This year I was lucky enough to be selected to represent NZ at the Ocean Ski World Champs in France this September where I’m aiming for a top 10 finish as it’s my first year racing in the ocean skis.


Keep an eye out for Tim! Manuka Performance will be supporting him with high performance natural energy products, branding and more. As always, we are super pumped to be supporting on the world stage, from both New Zealand and abroad.
