Just a reminder this is on this Sunday. Forecast is looking good -

Winds: Southeasterly 10 to 15 knots.
Weather: The chance of a thunderstorm in the morning. Mostly sunny afternoon.
Temperature: 23C

Shane will be providing you the opportunity to foil behind his boat.
I urge anyone interested in foiling to come and try this because it is the quickest way to learn and the feeling will blow your mind!

If you have any enquiries you can call/text James on 0432 698 032

Thanks to everyone who came down.
Special thanks to Shane from Binks Marine for providing the boat for tow foiling, wind foil kit for trial and for demonstrating how it is done (plenty jaws dropped when you foiled out from the launch area!)!
Well done to the 7 intrepid youngsters who went windsurfing!

Well done James for getting all those kids on the water. Looks like they were having a blast! That towing method is great - gets them up and moving in the right direction without too much focus on getting drive out of the sail.
