Lake Ferry

Coming up is our 2011 Wairarapa weekend on 14th-15th May, so fingers crossed for some better weather. From mid-morning Saturday we'll be based at Lake Ferry - a great freeride, speed and freestyle spot, plus there are the numerous Cape Palliser breaks for wavesailing nearby too.

Maiya Holton

Maiya Holton is a young girl who loves windsurfing. Her first day on a windsurfer was windless and raining, but she knew instantly this was something she wanted to do. Within three months, she had her own shortboard. A year later, she won the 13-and-under division of the Madloop Junior Freestyle Competition. In years to come, she hopes to be making her way as a professional windsurfer in all the disciplines. Maiya is eleven years old.

Second wind for board sport

Windsurfing lost out to cheaper extreme sports but is again attracting the attention of the young - and not so young. By Dennis Cole
FIND A breath of wind and you'll also find collections of little sails racing round the harbour, and closer to shore than the Lasers and Pclasses you will find windsurfers.
The sport has died down since its hey day in the 1980s — a combination of expensive, inaccessible equipment and a rise in other extreme sports such as snowboarding and skateboarding took the wind out of the sport's sails. But recently windsurfing has been changing its look: rather than racing from buoy to buoy youngsters are being drawn to free style windsurfing—flipping and spinning in the air to land tricks you'd more likely see on a snow or skateboard.

Madloop Junior Freestyle Competition results

The first Madloop Junior Freestyle Competition was a great success. There were lots of talented kids out on the water showing off their moves for the judges - two of New Zealand's freestyle stars, Thomas Davies and Jebbe Unthank. All the competitors, aged from 4 to 17, had a fun time and were impressive in the gusty wind.

Madloop Junior Freestyle update

Madloop Junior Freestyle Competition will be broadcast live by Radio Ponsonby on their frequency 107.7FM and worldwide on their Ustream channel. They will also be providing music for the event.
The event has also received attention in the press.

WWA - Freewave Round 3 Finale - Clayton Dougan crowned again

Awesome out of control conditions for the third and last round of the Wellington Freewave series for 2010. 40 knots plus at Lyall Bay and grunty logo southerly swell saw another reduced amount of entries. But enough for two heats, a repercharge and a final.
