A windsurfing club is a great way to get into windsurfing. Your local windsurfing club will will introduce you into your local windsurfing community. A solo sport like windsurfing can make it hard to get advice on where to sail, what to buy and what to do. By joining a club you'll get all these things an so much more. BBQs, film evenings, instruction days, trips away, competitions, friends and sailing partners.

Just giving you some advance notice of an event which will be happening on Lake Hawea 30.Nov/1.Dec. Organised by the Hotel and some local kiters and supported by the club. It will focus around camping and sailing together, with a good night out at the hotel on the Saturday. There may be a ‘downwinder’ and/or some form of freestyle fun competition too, though the exact format is yet to be finalised. (Sorry those of you doing windsurf South Island Cup but we'll always clash with something and it is the windy time there). Contact. Yohann 02108435786.

Please do come along with ideas about what you’d like out of the club.…..Last year nothing much happened with the club, apart from buying some great beginners/improvers gear to encourage new members (many thanks to Craig for all his hard work to make this happen)…. So this year we’re looking for as many people as possible to get involved so we can share the load and keep this club active. Please think about whether you’d be prepared to do just a little bit, even if it’s just being a contact for new members in your area.

Its that time of the year again when we ask you to pay your affiliation fee and start thinking about next season. This modest fee helps pay for the event insurance we offer clubs, our membership fees with ISAF, and the costs of advocacy and promotion of the sport.

Well the wind may not have blown much.. but that didn't stop the women who attended the annual womens camp at Clearwater, near Christchurch from having fun.

On Friday night a couple of the early arrivals ventured out on their long boards and had a relaxing unwind from the trip. Then on Saturday
we were met by a hot calm day... plenty of time for catch ups.

Windsurfing and kiting social get-together. Repeat of a great event. Simple across the lake and back race series for Windsurfers and Kiters. Think about this as an option for Xmas/New Year, there's always lots of windsurfers and kiters camping there. Very social.
Possibility of and Upwind/Downwind race as well on New Years eve.
