We’re only seven weeks out from the 2009 Taranaki Wave Classic, and Taranaki’s world class wavesailing conditions are being primed for the Labour weekend occasion (October 24–26).
Pre-registration is underway and a fantastic list of sponsors is putting up over $7000 in prizes, headed by our platinum sponsors: Carbon Art and Rodgers Dental Clinic.
Bound to be at the top of everyone’s wish list is the ultimate spot prize: the Carbon Art waveboard, provided by New Zealand’s premier board shapers, Carbon Art.
Other sponsor prizes include Go Pro waterproof cameras, for capturing your own stylish moves on the water—moves you might create with a new sail from Gaastra or KA Sails, a schmicko new boom and harness from NZ Boardstore and Zimmos—all the while looking fancy in a custom made 7th Wave wetsuit. Not to mention you’ll have the whitest and cleanest teeth in the country, thanks to Rodgers Dental Clinic.
The Taranaki Wave Classic always turns on the best of Taranaki’s world class wavesailing and windsurfing conditions. Whether you’re venturing into the waves as a beginner, or ready to wow the crowds smacking a monster wave at Pungarehu, you know there’ll be tons of fun, encouragement, and partying with windsurfers from all over New Zealand (and even a few international sailors too).
