Windsurfing schools meet WNZ standards to get Affiliation

Several windsurfing schools and instructors now meet the standards for equipment and operation set down by Windsurfing NZ. It is hoped that more schools will meet these standards in the future. This program of accreditation and affiliation could become critical in the near future as risk management requirements controlling 'adventure tourism' activities could have a huge regulatory and financial impact on schools. By taking responsibility for our own quality and risk now we may be able to avoid over regulation and prohibitive costs, as well as ensuring that customers get a high standard of tuition and a great experience.

Windsurfing schools sign up to Windsurfing New Zealand standards scheme

Windsurfing schools are signing up to the Windsurfing New Zealand standards for teaching windsurfing. These ensure that the instructors, the location, the facilities and the processes are suitable to give an enjoyable and safe introduction windsurfing.

Alexander wraps up the event (big thank you to him).

Big thanks to all other sponsors and volunteers that helped make this event possible. Read the analysis of where we could go next with this discipline...
