If you’ve entered this year’s Taranaki Wave Classic you’ll be pleased to know that over the past month Taranaki’s wind and wave gods have been delivering the goods, with the locals enjoying great sessions at all their favourite spots, including some classic Waitara and Pungarehu action. Yep – you heard it right – Pungas is back online for the new season, complete with solid swell and the occasional orca coasting by.

Taranaki Wave Classic 2011

Fri 21 Oct 2011 - Mon 24 Oct 2011

The Taranaki Wave Classic is continuing to cement its reputation as New Zealand's premier windsurfing event. Held at four possible locations around the Taranaki peninsula’s legendary coastline, the Labour weekend event will sample some of New Zealand's best wind and wave conditions. All skill levels are welcome, with FUN being the main focus, or you can simply come along, chill-out and watch the action. Our goal is for you to have the best time possible, both on and off the water. This means the most epic BBQs, beers, tall stories and sessions in the wind and waves. And to cap a great weekend off this is all followed up by the legendary TWC dinner and party. And who knows, this year maybe your turn to win a state of the art Carbonart Windsurf Board, as well as sails, masts, booms and other wonderful prizes.

Windsurfer rescued off Waitara

A Venezuelan windsurfer battled strong currents and wind for hours after getting into trouble off Waitara on Saturday.

"After two hours of trying to do a water start I was exhausted," Josue Hernandez said soon after his rescue at the hands of a local jet skier.

"The current was stronger than me and I was exhausted," the 25-year-old, who has lived in New Plymouth for the past nine months, said.

His windsurfer was left behind and was last seen drifting north along the rugged coastline.
