Windsurfing - Youth Slalom Clinic

Despite a lack of wind, and several showers coming through, a good time was had by all at the youth slalom clinic. The spot prizes from Carbon Art went down a treat, and at the end a Carbon Art slalom board came out for a spin – it was apparently “amazing!” Here are a few photos from the day .. http://youth.windsurfingnz.org/

Youth Windsurfing Slalom Clinic - change of venue!

Due to wind conditions and safety concerns, the youth slalom clinic which is being held this Saturday, December 17th, will be at LAKE PUPUKE instead of Takapuna Beach as originally advertised. Same start time, 11am. Remember Alan of Madloop is based at the lake and has gear to hire if you need it.

AWA youth slalom clinic is on this Saturday at Takapuna beach

Just a reminder that the AWA youth slalom clinic is on this Saturday at Takapuna beach. 11am start time, and we hope to finish around 2pm (with a lunch break in the middle) but it depends on the wind.

This event is for all windsurfers under the age of 18. Come and learn slalom race tricks and techniques and join in some fun racing (weather permitting). Spot prizes from the awesome Carbon Art!

Bring your own gear or hire a board/sail from Madloop Windsurfing School. (Techno, shortboard, whatever you've got will be fine.)

$10 per person, bring your own lunch.

Hope to see you there.
