New Zealand prepares for the Taranaki Wave Classic

October 7, 2008 | Windsurfing

Taranaki Wave Classic 2008

Only a few weeks to go before the 2008 TWC kicks off. 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.

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...
