The Taranaki Wave Classic is New Zealand’s premiere windsurfing event.
This is a multi-day Expression Session event held over NZ’s Labour weekend. The event will sample some of New Zealand’s best wind and wave conditions, and will be held at 4 possible locations around the legendary Taranaki peninsula coastline. All skill levels are welcome, or just come along chill out, and watch the action. Beer, bands and barbies will be organised for after session entertainment.
Again we have a long list of supporters who have donated great products. All of these will be up for grabs as spot prizes to all entries. A big thanks goes out to all the sponsors. All entries will go into the draw to win a brand new Carbon Art wave board valued at nearly $3,000 NZD.
Following a long history of events held in Taranaki, the Taranaki Wave Classic will continue to put the emphasis on fun. The event will be an Expression Session format, where competitors will free-sail in whatever conditions occur at the chosen location for that day. There will be no heats, no man on man elimination, and no stress. Remember its all about fun so bring your toys…
