Hope you are making the most of the warm and windy weather and getting on the water ! A Few things to wrap up the year before making way for 2013...

2012 NZ Freestyle Nationals - Wellington
2012 NZ Freestyle nationals were run by WWA in Wellington on the 1st December. We had great conditions and excellent talent competing. Competition was run at the recently named spot: “The MCC” at the Ngatitoa Domain. Well done to Tom Taylor who was the top NZ sailor and Rob Harrison who was third. Check out the event write up on our WWA website and at deepfried.tv for more pictures.

(report: Eric Torvelainen 11/12/2012)
The 2012 NZ Freestyle nationals were hotly contested in epic conditions. UK windsurfer Al Bentley took the competition title in a 40 knot final epic over Tom Taylor. Taylor taking top New Zealand windsurfer pushed Bentley to his best, duelling twice in competition. Wellington definitely did not disappoint, with sunny and windy conditions. Over the afternoon of freestyle action the wind climbed from 20 to 40 knots.
Competitors battled their way through a single into double elimination round at the locally named spot the MCC. At the Ngatitoa Domain, the narrow channel kept the action close for spectators and judges alike.

Last year Auckland turned it on with a stellar day of freestyle action. Wellingtonian Tim Haxell had to produce his best, to fend off the Aucklanders, to take the title down to the Capital.

Haxell, 24, will have his work cut out again this year. The return of Wellington bread freestyle master Tom Taylor will present stiff competition. Taylor, once winner of the international JP Young Gun Freestyle Camp, will have to work hard having been off the water this year.

After a couple of months of indifferent weather and a couple of attempts coming up short I have finally managed to complete my 100km challenge! Feels good, and I recommend something similar to others as a way to raise funds for a charity. Look foward to me issuing some sort of challenge next year! (read on for details)
