Friday, October 21, 2011 - 09:00 - Monday, October 24, 2011 - 17:00
Taranaki

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.

TWC 2010 – SUP
What, no wind… !?
The Taranaki Wave Classic of 2010 saw participants greeted with perfectly sunny glassy days, providing a great opportunity for catching up with fellow windsurfers from all over the country.

SUPs and surfboards were hot property with a nice swell rolling into Weld Road and other awesome breaks, and daily BBQs and beers topped of a few fun relaxing days at the beach. This was the first time in the history of the TWC the wind did not come to the party.
