Introduction to foiling (windsurfers) Q&A

Wed 16 Aug 2017
Takapuna Grammar Rowing Club

Do you have questions about foiling? How to try it? Whats the best foil to get... or when foiling is most fun? Well come down to Bayswater Marina and catch up while I go over the main changes and areas so you can best learn to foil.
I will run a Q&A session for anyone wanting to know more about foiling and whether it is as exciting and easy as everyone says. Feel free to bring your own foils so we can discuss the differences and how you can best improve or get into this exciting new dimension of windsurfing

$15 entry which will include some beers and snacks.

We will kick off after Winter Champs on October 9th. Details of content, session time and cost will be shared.

Windsurfing GPS racing gets the thumbs up

Just completed the two day GPS event at Manly on the weekend and it was really exciting. It’s everything you love about windsurfing; mates to sail with, multiple sessions with nice breaks to tune and chat and with as much/little competition as you like.

New Zealand windsurfing Facebook groups

If you want to make contact with fellow sailors Facebook is fairly active and up to date, often used to check conditions and arrange meetings on a daily basis.
