Just completed the two day GPS event at Manly on the weekend and it was really exciting. It’s everything you love about windsurfing; mates to sail with, multiple sessions with nice breaks to tune and chat and with as much/little competition as you like.

Flying Forwards windsurf school is located at Whangaparaoa. After 7 fun filled years they have decided to get a ' proper' job. The reason is due to working weekends v's family commitments.

The school runs well and is able to pay a hefty mortgage and feed kids.

As it is a mobile windsurf school run out of a van and trailer it is possible to run it anywhere in country. However they would love to see it run in Whangaparaoa, as it has existing customers and a great reputation.
