Taranaki Wave Classic 2016 report

Taranaki Wave Classic 2016 went off! Hosted by Carbon Art Windsurf Boards, the 2016 event delivered fantastic conditions for both official competition and the ‘unofficial’ practice day on Friday. Pungarehu – the spiritual home of New Zealand wavesailing – came to the party early on the Friday with the traditional south-easterly arriving by late morning. Early bird locals were there and on it well before lunchtime, as well as the visitors appearing from all around the country; eager to get some practice in.
