Wellington Turns It On For Windsurfing NZ Freestyle Nationals 2012

(report: Eric Torvelainen 11/12/2012)
The 2012 NZ Freestyle nationals were hotly contested in epic conditions. UK windsurfer Al Bentley took the competition title in a 40 knot final epic over Tom Taylor. Taylor taking top New Zealand windsurfer pushed Bentley to his best, duelling twice in competition. Wellington definitely did not disappoint, with sunny and windy conditions. Over the afternoon of freestyle action the wind climbed from 20 to 40 knots.
Competitors battled their way through a single into double elimination round at the locally named spot the MCC. At the Ngatitoa Domain, the narrow channel kept the action close for spectators and judges alike.

New Zealand Windsurfing Freestyle Nationals comes to Wellington this weekend (1 and 2 December).

Last year Auckland turned it on with a stellar day of freestyle action. Wellingtonian Tim Haxell had to produce his best, to fend off the Aucklanders, to take the title down to the Capital.

Haxell, 24, will have his work cut out again this year. The return of Wellington bread freestyle master Tom Taylor will present stiff competition. Taylor, once winner of the international JP Young Gun Freestyle Camp, will have to work hard having been off the water this year.
