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.

Hauraki Gulf Use and Values Survey running from 3 March until 21 April 2014.
The survey is being run by AUT PhD candidate Rebecca Jarvis who is studying conservation social networking in the gulf under Dr Barbara Breen. The survey is not specific to conservation, however, and covers all uses and values.

I am very happy to have my windsurfing clinic kicking off this Friday at 10.30. Pete and I have a lot planned so it will be an action packed course with a lot of windsurf training and fun. The opening night there is a BBQ at the Pt Chevalier Yacht Club (where students will be sleeping) which all parents are welcome to come along to where JP Tobin will be talking and answering questions anyone has. The food I will be providing will be prepared by Ironique Cafe Mt Eden.

Tides
Saturday high tide: 8.30am | Sunday high tide: 9.40am
hot spot
The Weekend forecast not looking to promising. A big high over the North Island, with light West
to SW winds. We might get some sea breezes late in the afternoon but windguru and other sites
all say a similar thing. Light winds.
With very little wind about it will be a matter of keeping an eye on a late afternoon sea breeze
filling in and big gear, otherwise get the Sup out. There might be some light wind formula sailing
at Pt Chev close to the high tides if the forecast holds.

What an inspiring sail with Olympic Windsurfer JP Tobin today! I sailed at the fastest pace I’ve ever done on an RS:X. At one stage I was using all my strength and skills to stop my board tail walking in a 30 knot gust. We covered 42km and visited10 clubs on our sailathon. Very exciting sailing. After a delayed start due to light airs. JP and I started our trip from Torbay and headed off downwind in about 15 knots. As we sailed south the wind continually built and by the time we rounded north head it was a solid 20, gusting 30 knot easterly.

Its that time of the year again when we ask you to pay your affiliation fee and start thinking about next season. This modest fee helps pay for the event insurance we offer clubs, our membership fees with ISAF, and the costs of advocacy and promotion of the sport.

February proved again that the wind can be very shifty and light. Great for socialising on the beach but more difficult for setting a fair course off Manly Beach.

A Techno competition doubled as the Oceania's and the NZ Nationals. There were four competitors from Noumea and one from Australia as well as a bunch of new local sailors in this class.
