Waterbourne - Waterbourne Ocean Clash for windsurfers, kiteboards and SUP

Waterbourne's new and exciting approach to the nationals is something you don't want to miss. Alongside the downwind slalom, Waterbourne will incorporate a long distance race (10km) around Matiu/Somes Island - Waterbourne Ocean Clash.

Kitesurfers and stand up paddleboarders (SUPs) will also be taking part in the overall race. SUPs will be released first and kitesurfers and windsurfers will be released together 30minutes later. Although there is a handicap for the overall Waterbourne Ocean Clash title, this handicap will not effect the result for the national title where competitors will get a placing in the overall race and in their specific division (windsurfer, kitesurfer etc).

Dog exercise area proposed for popular windsurfing & kiteboarding location

Popular sailing spot in a southerly is about to have a fenced dog exercise area attached to it without consultation. The area in McEwan Park, Petone is one of the most popular locations for beginner/recreational windsurfing and kiteboarding in Wellington, and one of the few locations sailable in a southerly wind.
Users of this area know that people exercising dogs in this area are already a problem with little respect for the other users. The council is planning to fence off a grassed area used for rigging , launching and practising kite flying. The area will attract many more dog owners, creating parking problems in a location which is already used to capacity on a good day. Besides the windsports users the area is used by numerous others for sports activities.

Help us shape the future of Whitireia Park

Over the next couple of months we are asking for comments that will help us to develop a new management plan for Whitireia Park.

Located in the Porirua Basin, Whitireia Park is a prominent headland with amazing views for those who walk, bike, rock climb, play golf take a picnic, swim at the Park or even live nearby. It is similar to other regional parks in that it is much larger than city parks and offers adventure in an unmanicured environment. It's home to some unique plants and there are a number of restoration efforts underway. Not to mention, it has a long Maori history dating back to Kupe's canoe anchoring here and in more recent years home to Ngati Toa.

ISAF Windsurfing & Kiteboarding Committee Agenda - Olympic decision revisited

The Windsurfing & Kiteboarding Committee will meet on Sunday 4 November 2012 at the Royal St George Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, Ireland to consider a large number of submissions on the earlier selection of kiteboarding over windsurfing for Rio 2016. The submissions themselves make interesting reading (see below) as they are more considered (less emotive) than the discussions that have been taking place in the media, including social media.
