His last international success came in the 1978 World Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro, when he won bronze with the New Zealand eight.
In 2006, Lindstrom was appointed to the panel of junior national selectors by Rowing New Zealand (RNZ), and he later became the convenor of this panel. He was a rowing coach at his old school, St Bede's College, for many years. Travelling to the 2015 Maadi Cup, two of his rowers were involved in a security breach at Auckland Airport. St Bede's headmaster stood the rowers down from the regatta and Lindstrom had a public fallout with the headmaster over the affair. It resulted in his resignation as rowing coach at St Bede's, but he was also dumped by RNZ as a junior selector. Lindstrom was coaching the Wanganui Collegiate School rowing club, and provided results to the school within his first year of coaching. Lindstrom is now head coach of the Christchurch Girls' High School rowing club.
