1983 was the year that the Taranaki Wave Classic was born, in it’s first guise as the Sirocco Expression Session.

You may know my brother Luke, a young windsurfer of middling ability – any talent buried under a thick blanket of hangovers, laziness and a determination to hit the startline to the nearest minute rather than the nearest second.

Didn’t vote!

Do you have questions about foiling? How to try it? Whats the best foil to get... or when foiling is most fun? Well come down to Bayswater Marina and catch up while I go over the main changes and areas so you can best learn to foil.
I will run a Q&A session for anyone wanting to know more about foiling and whether it is as exciting and easy as everyone says. Feel free to bring your own foils so we can discuss the differences and how you can best improve or get into this exciting new dimension of windsurfing

$15 entry which will include some beers and snacks.
