Taranaki / TWC News


Another year and another Taranaki Wave Classic! This year’s event showcased the best conditions Taranaki can offer, with an insanely epic, mast high, down-the-line, Pungarehu extravaganza!


Places to sail etc.


August 2009—Spring is fast approaching, and it’s the time of year that brings the combination of pristine south-west swells and consistent cross-offshore breezes to Taranaki, New Zealand’s home of wavesailing. New Zealand’s most popular windsurfing event, the Taranaki Wave Classic, will be held over the October Labour Day weekend (Oct 23rd–26th), bringing together sailors from all over the country (and even further afield) for a celebration of all things windsurfing.

I see that you organisation has an event on in New Plymouth this weekend being Easter. We trust you will have a fantastic time in the 'NAKI!'!! This is just a quick note to let you know we have accommodation available, due to a very late cancellation. Our Bach (which sleeps upto 14) is available on from 2pm on Thursday the 9th to 10am on the Tuesday the 14th April, for a flat rate of $300 per night.

The recently completed National Slalom event in Dunedin made great reading in 2 local newspapers. A great article on James Dinnis in the Tranaki Daily Times, and equally good coverage of Sue Bradley's win in the ODT make good reading.

Only a few weeks to go before the 2008 TWC kicks off! Pre-Registrations are all most closed so get in quick!!!
Cut-off date is this Friday 10th October. Industry sponsors are all on board and have fronted up with some excellent prizes again this year including sails, masts, wetsuits and more.... so don't miss out!
