The Wellington Windsurfing Association has 2 big learner boards and small kid rigs which it lends to members of the Association for a $15 donation per time (7 days).
The board is a JP Funster 180 litres and comes with fins. It's great for adult sailors who want to practice new moves, people completely new to the sport, and also to introduce young family members to the world of windsurfing. It's really floaty and stable and makes learning lots of fun.
Neil Pryde 'One' 2m kids rig
The kid’s rig comprises a 2.0m sail, mast and boom and works with the board. Adults will need to find a bigger rig to use with the WWA board.
We try to allow as many members as possible to have the opportunity to borrow the board over the year, so have put a few rules in place:
- To make a booking you must be either a full Individual Member or Full Joint member. The board is not available for hire to non-members.
- Bookings are available for Monday to Sunday basis each month and are available to a member one week only at a time.
- Bookings may be made up to three months in advance.
