The Judges will then decide on the best entry and the winner will take the prize of their choice.
The Judges' decision will be based on.

  2)  Originality   
  3)  Exposure of the Flying Objects Logo to a wide audience.(i.e get it shown on TV or a picture in the paper etc)

Please keep it clean and keep it legal.

Photo-shopped entries are allowed but are not really in the spirit of the competition - It would have to be an exceptionally good one to win.

Your local Auswind retailer has been mailed stickers for you to go in and collect (Click here for a full list of retailers).

 1st Place gets to choose from a

Starboard Stand Up Paddle valued up to $2200

Starboard SUP

The Starboard R+D team travelled around the globe to develop and test a range of SUP boards spanning from the exceptionally fast 14'8" point to point board with foot steering, to the 7'2" kids board. The seven very best shapes were selected and made available in two technologies, the great looking wood Sport Tech version and the extra durable Tufskin models.

Starboards SUP collection has a host of features which set them apart in the world of SUP:
•    Fast tail rockers for speed and early take off
•    Extra width for stability
•    Added middle rocker plus thin rails for a great ride and manoeuvrability
•    Concaves for nose riding and smoothness
•    Built-in carry handles and double leash inserts

Airush Kite valued up to $2200


The major innovation that jumps out in the 2009 Airush Kite Range is the Flow FT (Flat technology). The Flow FT introduces variable canopy curve. This unique innovation optimises the centre area of the canopy, which is flatter and more efficient than traditional Kites - there is no centre strut. What this does is increases depower while reducing bar pressure and throw.

The steering of the Flow FT is a lot more direct that the 2008 model. Airush have done this by attaching the back lines directly to the kite and by using an Aramid Composite Sandwich construction, a similar material to that found in windsurfing sails, in the wingtip area. This feature creates more direct steering due to a wingtip/LE structure that is 50% stiffer than a standard wingtip.

The Vapor II was a late season release and continues through into the 2009 range. The Vapor II continues to get great reviews and is still a popular choice for freestyle and wave riding.

Starboard Windsurfer valued up to $2200

Starboard Windsurfing

Starboard had a great year last year winning the PWA Constructor's Title, and for 2009 Starboard have once again excelled in all categories of windsurfing, by presenting a range of boards that continues the push the boundaries of windsurfing.

The biggest change in the Starboard range is the Acid and Kombat boards being consolidated into 1 new range - The KODE. The KODE is designed for speed and aggressive wave riding in the 68, 74 and 80 litre models with a classic rail-to-rail wave riding character. While the 86, 94, 102, and 112 offer a more classic crossover feel, blending the ability to wave-ride, to blast at high speed, to jibe aggressively and to freestyle.

Or if you are new to Windsurfing and want a board that is stable enough to learn on yet will grow with you as your windsurfing skills develop, the GO could be the board for you.  The extra width in these boards provides extra stability and early planing ability, as you progress the GO boards give you some of the most fun and widest wind range you can get from a windsurf board. With their full EVA deck, they provide exceptional comfort and the carry handles make them easy to transport.
