If you ever though a lifestyle change to teaching windsurfing was an option then this may interest you. Full school setup (or parts thereof) has been posted on Trademe.

If you are associated with a yacht or windsurfing club that wanted a set of gear for teaching this is also a great opportunity to get the gear you need as the seller is also prepared to break it down to order as an option.

Below is an e-mail received from Brett Morris for anybody who is interested.
We will be at Big Manly Beach (aprox 1hr north of Auckland) from 23-27 Dec2010.
Weather permitting we will sail every day, and have private instruction on all aspects of Formula Windsurfing for anyone who is motivated to be there.
I know the details are a pretty loose, but I can guarantee you will not be disappointed if you make the effort to come up. Just email BrettM@gfigroup.com.au , txt or call me on +61 414 812 545 (leave a message if no answer), and we can co-ordinate the best time/place to meet up.
Cheers, Brett Morris (AUS-8) and Jesper Vesterstrom (DEN-111) - Please forward this to any other people who you think would be interested in participating.

Auckland Windsurfing Association AGM - Minutes by: Daniel Thomas – President

Greg Olver has offered to take on the role of Media officer for a 3 month period initially
Use of a regular radio slot for a windsurfing forecast in the region was discussed and thought to not
be a good/productive use of resources as most people utilise online resources such as windguru.cz,
windsurf.co.nz and metservice.co.nz. Brian smith commented that he used to do it a long time ago
and said it required a big commitment on the part of the person designated to report each day

Alexander wraps up the event (big thank you to him). Not a huge turn out but great to get this event off the ground and there is obviously energy to carry it forward (breaking news, there may be another freestyle event towards the end of the season). Big thanks to all other sponsors and volunteers that helped make this event possible. Read the analysis of where we could go next with this discipline...
