The organisers did a brilliant job of organising the event but could not control the wind - but despite the lack of this essential component a great weekend was had by all. Over 80 windsurfers from as far away as Dunedin spent the weekend floating around on their biggest windsurfers or stand-up paddling (SUP), a popular alternative for windless windsurfers.

Taranaki Wave Classic - Following a long history of events held in Taranaki, the Taranaki Wave Classic will continue to put the emphasis on fun.
The event will be an Expression Session format, where competitors will free-sail in whatever conditions occur at the chosen location for that day. There will be no heats, no man on man elimination and no stress. The top 10 riders will be selected for a super session.

The 2010 windsurfing wave nationals final was a family affair with team La Franchie reaching the top two positions. Chris dominated the final, as he dominated the rest of the competition. He consistently landed aerials off the outside peak and was laying in the most radical turns. These were vertical bottoms turns flowing at full speed onto the other rail and gauging 270° back into the white water. The thousands of top turns Taranaki has gifted these two brothers, showed through in their smooth style, wave timing and selection. Chris is the leading sailor in Taranaki at the moment and is showing the standard required for all the aspiring champion wave sailors out there. Tom Taylor showed he is not just a free style maestro, and has top skills in waves as well. Lots of critical hits and aerials gave him a deserved 3rd place this year.

The Taranaki Wave Classic is continuing to cement its reputation as New Zealand's premier windsurfing event. Held at four possible locations around the Taranaki peninsula’s legendary coastline, the Labour weekend event will sample some of New Zealand's best wind and wave conditions. All skill levels are welcome, with FUN being the main focus, or you can simply come along, chill-out and watch the action. Our goal is for you to have the best time possible, both on and off the water. This means the most epic BBQs, beers, tall stories and sessions in the wind and waves. And to cap a great weekend off this is all followed up by the legendary TWC dinner and party. And who knows, this year maybe your turn to win a state of the art Carbonart Windsurf Board, as well as sails, masts, booms and other wonderful prizes.

A Venezuelan windsurfer battled strong currents and wind for hours after getting into trouble off Waitara on Saturday.

"After two hours of trying to do a water start I was exhausted," Josue Hernandez said soon after his rescue at the hands of a local jet skier.

"The current was stronger than me and I was exhausted," the 25-year-old, who has lived in New Plymouth for the past nine months, said.

His windsurfer was left behind and was last seen drifting north along the rugged coastline.

2011 wave nationals congrats to winner Paul Barron - A Great few days sailing in pumping condition. The Two Pauls were the stand outs of the event. Paul B was super smooth and Paul H was super unlucky breaking three sails at the wrong times.
