2013 New Zealand Open Waveski Surfing Open - this weekend!

Submitted by Jo on Mon, 03/25/2013 - 22:50

Steve says that he expects around 20 entrants. Swell is building on the East coast according to a @SurfingNZ tweet this evening! Registration Friday night @6pm... that's an easy drive from Auckland to Gisborne on Friday.

The Annual General Meeting will take place at some time during that weekend. If you want to be on the committee or have any business you want discussed please email Steve or myself a.s.a.p. - especially if you can not be there.

Thanks & have an awesome comp if you are going - Jo

Island Adventure (from WSNZ February 2013 newsletter)

It was a combination of studying the swell & wind forecast, some local knowledge of the tides, plus a good dose of surfers intuition and instinct.

Chris Vincent had arrived at my doorstep the evening before to say "I think we should look at the island tomorrow".

Fate ensured this was no coincidence because I was literally about to pick up the phone and call Chris to make the same prediction!

Hi All – Wow, finally some news to report. Well summer has nearly passed us by and not a lot has been happening on the waveski scene. But I’m sure you’ve all been surfing heaps. The big news of course was the cancellation of the World Titles that were going to be held in Brazil. Our very own Steve Gibbs was all booked in and amped to go so he’s one that’s not too impressed about it all. I’d say there would be lots in the same situation absolutely gutted.

Hosted by the Turanganui Waveski Club. Gisborne 30-31 March 2013.

From the WSNZ newsletter: "Good news is that the cancellation of this has prompted the return of the NZ OPEN to Easter weekend (30 -31 March). There was talk at the AGM of Auckland hosting it, but no-one has taken up the challenge, so the Gizzy crew have offered to hold it again. I just had an email from Steve confirming it all...
So if you’re keen, get booking…….and out there practicing…….(If you need to :D)"
