Taranaki Wave Classic

The organisers did a brilliant job of organising the event but could not control the wind - but despite the lack of this essential component a great weekend was had by all. Over 80 windsurfers from as far away as Dunedin spent the weekend floating around on their biggest windsurfers or stand-up paddling (SUP), a popular alternative for windless windsurfers.

The 'goodie bag' was great, supported by the various sponsors such as Rodgers Dental, Carbon Art and several windsurfing and local businesses.
Each day featured a BBQ and 'workshops' where the experts shared their tips and answered questions. The party on the Sunday night was well attended by sailors and their families.
Spot prizes on the evening included a brand new Carbon Art board, sails from Gaastra and KA, a wetsuit from 7th Wave and other goodies totalling over $7000. Congratulations to the Taranaki guys for another great event for everyone, not just the hard core! Roll on next year.

Thanks guys - great job!

and remember - Wave Nationals are on next Easter.
