Set against the gentle chirps of the tuis and the groaning of the native pahutakawas, Waterbourne will be the home to some the best windsurfing action in the country. With world class conditions and a vibrant beach atmosphere this is an event you can't afford to miss.
Whether you are looking to have a blast with friends or get the adrenaline pumping with the best, Waterbourne will surpass expectations and bring your windsurfing to a whole new level. The fresh green grass at the event site has a lot to offer from a Saturday market and live music to on the water action.

Waterbourne will be the first stage of the Pacific Windsurf Cup bringing sailors from Tahiti, New Caledonia, Australia and Hawaii together as they fight to get qualification for the PWA World Tour. To be crowned Waterbourne champion, sailors will not only have to perform in slalom racing (70% of result) but also in the all new 'Waterbourne Ocean Clash' (30% of result) providing a whole new dimension to title (New Zealand citizens will also be fighting for their national ranking).

Waterbourne Ocean Clash
Competing or watching from the beach, there is plenty to see with windsurfing, kiteboarding and stand up paddle boarding all together. This race will be something you don't want to miss where all disciplines will be battling together with slight handicaps to allow slower vessels the chance to win the overall race.

Whether it's the prevailing north westerly or southerly you are guaranteed world class conditions where the beach can get rolling swell and choppy water depending on the wind direction.

Dress Up
Whether you are in it to win or just to have some fun we will also be holding a fancy dress for the race. Come along and dress to impress as we will have a judging panel with prizes for the winners. As health and safety is a priority we will have a officer checking costumes to ensure they will not inhibit you in the water. We encourage all participants to use life jackets where morph suits are not allowed. Gear TransportCompetitors traveling from the north island will have the option to take advantage of free gear transport. This is available for the first 25 windsurfers and 20 stand up paddlers.We encourage you to name 'tag and bag' your items together to minimise the risk of damage and ease of collection before and after the event site.

So we have decided to claim Boo Seeka as our own ;) Some say they are Aussies... but you guys claim Kiwi things all the time so for Waterbourne we can claim they are Kiwi's.

Come along for the epic sailing and beach parties, whilst also supporting Movember! www.waterbourne.co.nz/beach-party/

Here is an image of the Paddle Ninja Games also! Hope to see you here for the event!
