Waterbourne - Waterbourne Ocean Clash for windsurfers, kiteboards and SUP

Waterbourne's new and exciting approach to the nationals is something you don't want to miss. Alongside the downwind slalom, Waterbourne will incorporate a long distance race (10km) around Matiu/Somes Island - Waterbourne Ocean Clash.

Kitesurfers and stand up paddleboarders (SUPs) will also be taking part in the overall race. SUPs will be released first and kitesurfers and windsurfers will be released together 30minutes later. Although there is a handicap for the overall Waterbourne Ocean Clash title, this handicap will not effect the result for the national title where competitors will get a placing in the overall race and in their specific division (windsurfer, kitesurfer etc).

Tauranga Harbour Jam 11-12 November


Shaping up to be an awesome even - well organised, variety of events, great social includes, lots of great spot prizes - $40 preregister, $50 on the day
