  • What is apparent wind?

    Windsurfing News
    5 Mar 2015 | 10:46 am
    Why does the wind seem almost to disappear when you sail downwind and increase again when you sail upwind? Let's learn what apparent wind "feels" like. Beginner and advanced sailors have already felt it, but they probably haven't thought about it. When we sail in stronger winds, we tend to feel that we're moving faster than we actually are. This sensation occurs when we start feeling high winds on our face or on our skin. Apparent wind is exactly that. However, let's rewind our lesson a bit to the concept of true wind.

The semifinals had fours serious windsurfing contenders: Kauli Seadi, Kevin Pritchard, Boujmaa Guilloul and Camille Juban. In other words, two world champions and two AWT champions. Seadi pulled his trademark turns in with huge super-clean goiters, to win his heat against Pritchard; Juban managed to complete a perfectly landed goiter in the closeout section to move into the final.

Despite the promises from the local authorities, the amount of untreated waste flowing into the Guanabara Bay will not be cut by 80 percent, as initially announced. "The sailors are on various supplements to mitigate against it, but we can't do anything about the water quality," Stephen Park, British Sailing Team's manager, told Reuters.
  • Things you didn't know about the Wind

    28 Feb 2015 | 4:47 am
    The wind has many secrets. The wind hides multiple faces. The wind is invisible yet powerful. Discover and learn a few surprising windy facts. Wind is simply the flow or movement of air from high to low pressures. You can touch it, you can feel it, but you will never be able to store it in a box or own it. Winston Churchill once said, "Kites rise highest against the wind - not with it." Interestingly, people often consider wind to be an obstacle, and never quite understand that you can you adjust and adapt to get the most out of it from another perspective.

  • Submission on Proposed Northern Pegasus Bay Bylaw 2015 - Windsurfing NZ

    One function of Windsurfing NZ is to represent and advocate on behalf of windsurfers, or in the case of the South Island clubs, windsports enthusiasts :-). In keeping with this a submission has been made in regard to the above bylaw proposal. The main thrust of the submission is that (a) a compromise solution is possible, with reference to the Ruakaka Beach issue (read the submission), and (b) it's better to have users with a vested interest active in the area to help police any bylaws, rather than ban everyone and have little or no monitoring. read more

    Double Hookipa surf session for me yesterday. As I wrote in the report, the size was fun (head high with frequent overhead sets), but the shape was poor because of the wind and the windswell. When the conditions are poor, the crowd is thin, so I had fun anyway. What a contrast with the day before's session at Honolua... pretty much the opposite: perfect waves and tons of people. "Don't you get bored of always surfing?", both my father and my nephew once asked me..."No. It's never the same..." was my easy answer.Lots of rain today.Let's start right from that with the 6am satellite…
