More event details to come......


The winds are stronger, the days are longer so its time to get that windsurfer thats been lurking in your garage out. Check everything is still working and safe, and get back onto the water.

Starting with the Taranaki Wavesailing Classic, one of New Zealands biggest and most social event on the windsurfing calendar, this week will feature a number of activities around the country to mark the start of the 'windsurfing season'.


Cost: $350 Date: 11-12th Oct
Master Instructor: Peter Head Venue: TYPBC, Tauranga
This is an 18 hour course which runs from 9-6pm on both days each day (times may vary to suit the progress of the group). This allows full content of course to be learned and practiced thoroughly before Instructors gain their qualification and teach 'real' students, and for the course timetable to be tailored to make the best of the weather and tide conditions.
The course is based on the RYA teaching system, but has been simplified for New Zealand conditions, and uses a teaching method developed here which has proven effective. It is recognised and encouraged by YachtingNZ.


Windsurfing New Zealand trains windsurfing instructors, publishes guidelines and standards for windsurfing schools, and operates a certification scheme.


The demo van is rolling again, Come and try the latest gear!
We decided to come back - bigger and better! AND Distribution will have the latest boards and sails from Gaastra/Vandal/Tabou on site for demo. Also we'll bring a couple of teamriders to assist, answer questions etc.
A race clinic and (weather permitting) a fun slalom event will be run, so come around for some fun, bbq and drinks


BOP Windsurfers: Tauranga AKC kite/windsurf race day postponed until further notice - The call has been made,...........and after all that anticipation!
SUP anyone? Could be the only action to be had this weekend.
