Our AGM for our club will be held at the Speights Ale House on Wednesday 17 September starting at 6:30pm with nibbles and a chance to catch up with everyone before the meeting due to start at 7:30pm.

Please be aware I am standing down as president due to work commitments and we need someone to take over this role.

North Island Slalom Cup

This season there will be a North Island Cup (slalom) awarded to the best result from 3 events:
- Tauranga Spring Windsurf Fun Slalom 20/21 September
- Wellington Slalom Plus 29/30 November
- Auckland Slalom Series (1 selected round)
Results will be based on the individuals best results from 2 of the 3 events (i.e. Auckland/Tauranga or Tauranga/Wellington) - this should mean you are in with a chance if you only enter 2 of the 3 events

Kite and windsurfing regulations

New kitesurfing and windsurfing safety regulations have been introduced in Western Australia - essentially requiring lifejackets to be worn and a variety of other safety devices to be carried if operating more than 400m offshore in unprotected waters. It appears that the local kitesurfing organisations have agreed to this, its not clear if the windsurfers were actually involved (from the official site) - so it could be that this has been driven largely by kitesurfing safety issues. Something to be aware of.

Seafari Windsurf School is for sale


We have been operating this summer time business in Mercury Bay Coromandel Peninsula since 1994 , now we are moving on. It is fully operational, mobile and with the option to add kayak hire as we have.
