Taranaki Windsurfing Club

Taranaki Wave Classic

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.

2010 Carbon Art Rodgers Dental New Zealand Wavesailing Nationals

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 26th annual Maui Race Series has been running smoothly. The first 4 events have been completed, The Starboard Slalom, DaKine Classic, MFC Open and Quicksilver Cup. The Hawaii State Championships are scheduled for July 31st. This year there were a few heat postponements due to lack of wind and an occasional deflated or run away buoy but for the most part we had good slalom racing with lots of Pro Sailors and a seasoned Race committee.
