Taranaki Wave Classic 2011

Fri 21 Oct 2011 - Mon 24 Oct 2011

The Taranaki Wave Classic is continuing to cement its reputation as New Zealand's premier windsurfing event. Held at four possible locations around the Taranaki peninsula’s legendary coastline, the Labour weekend event will sample some of New Zealand's best wind and wave conditions. All skill levels are welcome, with FUN being the main focus, or you can simply come along, chill-out and watch the action. Our goal is for you to have the best time possible, both on and off the water. This means the most epic BBQs, beers, tall stories and sessions in the wind and waves. And to cap a great weekend off this is all followed up by the legendary TWC dinner and party. And who knows, this year maybe your turn to win a state of the art Carbonart Windsurf Board, as well as sails, masts, booms and other wonderful prizes.

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.

Taranaki Wave Classic

The organisers did a brilliant job of organising the event but could not control the wind - but despite the lack of this essential component a great weekend was had by all. Over 80 windsurfers from as far away as Dunedin spent the weekend floating around on their biggest windsurfers or stand-up paddling (SUP), a popular alternative for windless windsurfers.
