Use of a regular radio slot for a windsurfing forecast in the region was discussed and thought to not

windsurf.co.nz and metservice.co.nz. Brian smith commented that he used to do it a long time ago
and said it required a big commitment on the part of the person designated to report each day

There is one full time management position for someone with windsurfing/kayaking instructor experience, as well as a boatmaster qualification and first-aid certificate. There are also several casual jobs available to help out when the bookings are busy. If you are a windsurfer without a qualification, but are keen to teach, then why not check out the WindsurfingNZ training courses. We would be happy to take on anyone who has just qualified- Then maybe you could be spending your summer earning money on the beach!!
