2010 Carbon Art / Rodgers Dental New Zealand Wavesailing Nationals

Carbon Art - Tue 13 Apr 2010

2010 Wave Nationals
Bring on the wind...

Easter weekend began in similar fashion to the last few years with perfect warm summer weather gracing our skies. However for wind addicted windsurfers, this was the last thing wanted. Friday was called a lay day, with competitors being released to make their own fun. Most chose to go surfing, SUP’n or fishing.

Saturday the conditions were little better (i.e perfectly calm hot and sunny) and a sausage sizzle was held at Weld Road for the competitors and friends. A light NW breeze picked up late in the afternoon in time for a free sail at Kina Road north break, but too late for the competition unfortunately.

Sunday the competition was on hold at Pungarehu waiting for the forecast south easterly wind to arrive. Unfortunately the wind did not arrive until 6PM too late to run any competition heats.

The wind blew 30 knots overnight, then by the 10AM briefing at Pungarehu had dropped to below the minimum required for competition to be held at that location.

CA Travel Plans

Carbon Art - Wed 31 Mar 2010

Where in the world are you and what is happening in the UK?

We have been trying to make head roads into the UK, with our most recent being wave sailor Jack Hunt stepping up to be a CA Team rider, having been a CA Rider for many years. Welcome on board Jack! We would like feedback or comments on what UK riders need as an incentive to consider buying or trying a CA board?

Travel news: James Dinnis with a selection of CA Boards will be in the UK in May 2010, just after the Defi in France - interested in getting a board, but want to test one first, this is a great opportunity to book a demo. (We might even build a board for your request, and if you like it, you can buy it at the demo).

Hidden away in our site there is a really cool 'Request a Demo' page, find it here. Feel free to request a demo, and if we have a local rider who has the right gear for you to try we will do our best to hook it up right away - and in the case that you are located miles away from a CA Rider, we will keep your details until we have found a way to get a board to you for a demo, or alternatively we suggest that you take us up on our 'Buy it, Try it, Keep it or ... Return it & Get your money back! Guaranteed' offer. It works very well.

Have feedback to this news/question, comment on the forums here.

So what is new?

  1. Freight discounts.
    Finally a system that works out freight discounts on the fly. Discounts are applied to the freight component for multiple orders (the savings is equal to 20% off total freight for 2 boards, and 50% off total freight for 3 or more boards).
  2. Add-on options.
    We discovered that we have the ability to offer some excellent extras and have them ship for free (with the purchase of a board), so we have created an extra area.
  3. Secure Payment options.
    We now offer 3 payment processes; manual transaction (bank deposits), credit card (visa and Master Card), and PayPal.
  4. Sign up / Create an account.
    If you do this the site will remember where you are from and automatically show you the prices that match the country that you live in. Being a member also has the benefit of being part of the community and asking questions and giving feedback with other CA riders.

2010 Carbon Art Wave Boards update

Carbon Art - Fri 19 Feb 2010

One of our main projects over the last six months has been researching, testing and developing our new wave boards to establish what we could improve. The most complex part has been finding the right weather conditions; the season to date has been well below average here in Taranaki, New Zealand – where most of our R&D is carried out. Luckily we have had a few really good down the line days since Christmas, we have recently completed tweaking our 2010 prototypes and have now confirmed the new production shapes – which are being built as we speak.
