New Zealand Windsurfing Freestyle Nationals comes to Wellington this weekend (1 and 2 December).
Last year Auckland turned it on with a stellar day of freestyle action. Wellingtonian Tim Haxell had to produce his best, to fend off the Aucklanders, to take the title down to the Capital.
Haxell, 24, will have his work cut out again this year. The return of Wellington bread freestyle master Tom Taylor will present stiff competition. Taylor, once winner of the international JP Young Gun Freestyle Camp, will have to work hard having been off the water this year.
The onslaught on the top doesn’t stop there for Haxell. UK windsurfer Al Bentley is in town. Bentley brings freestyle moves that will amaze his competitors and spectators alike. Check him out online.
With the wind as promised, get yourself to the Ngatitoa Domain in Mana a.k.a. the MCC to see the action. Back up location is Evans Bay.
Competition times are from 11am to 6pm Saturday and if required 11am to 4pm Sunday. See you midday Saturday for an afternoon of windsurfing freestyle action!
