Notice of Windsurfing NZ AGM and call for nominations.

Fri 6 Feb 2015
Christchurch

It's normal practice to hold the WNZ AGM at the Nationals as this is the one time when most of those active in the organisation are able to get together. The actual date, time and place are to be confirmed - the practical approach over the last few years is to hold the AGM during down time (which does occur) during the event, i.e. while waiting for wind ... so anyone planning to attend who will not actually be at the event needs to be aware of this and make sure we have your contact details.

The winds are stronger, the days are longer so its time to get that windsurfer thats been lurking in your garage out. Check everything is still working and safe, and get back onto the water.

Starting with the Taranaki Wavesailing Classic, one of New Zealands biggest and most social event on the windsurfing calendar, this week will feature a number of activities around the country to mark the start of the 'windsurfing season'.

Nelson kitesurfers concerned about logs barging in

A plan to barge logs from Rabbit Island to Port Nelson has some major hurdles ahead if it is to get over the start line. Owner-manager of Kitesurf Nelson Shane Anderson said Blind Channel (the proposed route) represented about 80 per cent of the area allocated for use by kitesurfers. Not being able to use it would have a huge impact on the sport which recognised the channel as one of the best spots in New Zealand for kitesurfing.

A Nelson kitesurfer who lost his kite in gusty winds triggers search

A Nelson kitesurfer who lost his kite in gusty winds at Tahunanui Beach yesterday afternoon is embarrassed he prompted a pointless search operation. The Nelson Surf Life Saving Club and a Nelson City Council launch warden were sent to search for a supposed kitesurfer in the rough water near Rocks Rd, after the kite was spotted in the sea. Moral: If you lose gear on or near the water, report it so it doesn't trigger a search call-out.
