Slalom windsurfing is for the windsurfers who love to combine speed with tactical challenges. Slalom windsurfing is an internationally renowned high-wind sport. Slalom windsurfing was a rage during the 80's and the early 90's. Its popularity slowly declined due to the complicated quiver (collection of windsurfing equipments) required to sail efficiently at top wind speeds.

Windsurfing options - there are more than you think!

  • Techno 293 - the 'junior' Olympic class, the ideal entry for young sailors. The skills learned here will set kids up for any kind of windsurfing, and of course there's always the possibility of yet another Olympic medal
  • RS:X Olympic - the current Olympic class board on which Tom Ashley won the Beijing Olympic Gold in 2008

Gun Okato windsurfer cleans up

Okato's James Dinnis has beaten the best windsurfers in the United States.

The Taranaki man yesterday won the open men's event at the US windsurfing championships at the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon, taking out seven of the 11 races.

"He was pretty stoked when I talked to him this morning," his wife, Vanessa, said. "But he couldn't take the title because he wasn't an American.

"The title was awarded to the winner of the grand masters division ... he was the American with the highest points over the 11 races."


National Slalom event makes local newspapers - great coverage for sport.

The recently completed National Slalom event in Dunedin made great reading in 2 local newspapers. A great article on James Dinnis in the Tranaki Daily Times, and equally good coverage of Sue Bradley's win in the ODT make good reading.
