We are Team New Zealand

Tomorrow, and in the days to come there'll be a piece of ETNZ sailing with me on the water, and I'm sure this will hold true for all kiwi windsurfers. We've all known defeat, but winning is not why we sail, it's the pure joy of sailing, the challenge of doing better, of trying again and again and pulling off the perfect move, just once in a day, a week, or a lifetime. That's what sailing is all about, and ETNZ have embodied that. Well done guys from Windsurfing NZ, you have been inspirational and we are so proud to be kiwis because of your efforts. Thanks ... from Windsurfing NZ.
