Windsurfing - Youth Slalom Clinic

Despite a lack of wind, and several showers coming through, a good time was had by all at the youth slalom clinic. The spot prizes from Carbon Art went down a treat, and at the end a Carbon Art slalom board came out for a spin – it was apparently “amazing!” Here are a few photos from the day .. http://youth.windsurfingnz.org/

The Harbour Access Trust in association with the Takapuna Business Association and Auckland Council are currently exploring the possibility of the development of a wharf and commuter ferry service at the Northern end of Takapuna beach. The Auckland Windsurfing Association and a number of local residents have significant environmental, safety and viability concerns about any such development and believe that the re-purposing of the Takapuna Beach Holiday Park as a pre-cursor to such a move.
