Our Story

Elements World began back in 2013 and was initially named Surf the Elements Tours- a surfing tour company whose aim was to help tourist unlock the greatest, crowd-free breaks around the north island of New Zealand. Starting with a small personal loan, the now CEO Felipe bought a van, 7 surfboards and set about helping tourist fall in love with the sport of surfing. Each weekend, once the surf forecast had been carefully examined and evaluated, the van was loaded with everything you'd ever need for a surf safari and frothing tourists waiting for their first experience of surfing.


Whilst the Surf tours were booming, Felipe wasn't content with just helping tourists discover waves around the country -  he wanted to help them see it all. Shuffling around both the east and west coast hunting out waves each weekend, it quickly becomes apparent that the best way to see these beautiful islands is with your own four wheels.


Starting small and dreaming big, Felipe began converting Toyota Estimas into fully fledged self-contained camper vans. Through trial and error, Felipe and his temadeveloped the smoothest and easiest way of self-containing vehicles, ensuring space and quality were not compromised. Naturally, the demand was high and with that, the company needed to grow, that is when TREK Campers and Elements RV World were born. 


Elements team has taken the selling and conversion of campervans to the next level and Elements World is now a leading tourism company in New Zealand.
