What is The ZU Flight Club?

Let’s see who can get the biggest windsurf jump in Victoria!

Come and borrow a WOO Altitude Tracker and head for a session in the bay or down the coast.

Go nuts and get some massive air! Bring back the WOO unit and we will upload your score to our leader-board on our facebook page and website. It’s that simple!

Lets get high!

Rules:

*WOO GPS provided by The ZU *Measures height - flight time - Number of jumps
*No Rules, biggest, highest jump wins. (The unit has to be attached to the board, with the provided mount)
*The competition runs from October until the end of February.
*There are two categories: Semi Pro and Average Jo, so no matter what your level is you can give it a shot.

What can you win:

A Woo Retail Package valued at $299 (overall winner)
Features: Bluetooth Connectivity, Shockproof, 9-Axis Motion Sensor, Waterproof, USB Charger, Long Battery.

A Brand new North 2.0 Power XT extension and North I- base, valued at $395 (winner of the Average Jo category) So don’t hesitate and come and grab a Woo from The ZU and remember the rules… “Keep talking about Flight Club”

GAME ON

Pretty impressive height for the bay! I think you should put an * next to bay sessions - I reckon that's way more impressive!

Do you have to actually land or be on the board when it takes off ?

Awesome. I reckon I'll have a crack at it on my slalom board in an estuary.

Max velocity meets wave.

I'm not sure how much leverage you would get if you aren't actually 'sailing' your board when you hit a ramp!! However, you don't have to land it!!

This competition is all about getting MAXIMUM height!

How many units do you have? You can almost guarantee that the good days on the bay when you fellas will be having a crack will be good at Invy & other places too, so for us living down the coast who might want to have a go it would be good to have a couple of units if possible.

As it stands, we currently have 1 unit available to use!

But... do not fear! We have more available to purchase if you desire!!

Only 1 unit is gonna make it very tough...If theres a good forecast for the weekend it will be near impossible to borrow it then...IMO you need minimum 5 units to make it workable.

^agree... take the long range forecast for next Tues for example...



20-25 SW = Prime jumping conditions for all areas including the bay, surf coast, mornington pen, the island, and Invy/SandyPt . Not sure about far Sth West, but I'm sure there's spots there too.

Nice comp fellas. There was a Kiter that hit 11.7m with his WOO the other day in Whyalla. It looked impressive from the shore.

There is something to aim for.

Gents,

If demand is high we will put a second unit on demo ! But keep in mind you can have a session with a few mates using the same unit, all you have to do is switch it off and on again to create a new session and this will split up the Jump info! The comp runs to the end of February so plenty of opportunities to have a go !

Ladies and Gentlemen we have our FIRST results from FLIGHT CLUB!

We are sitting with Jan "Koster" Kruze as the high flyer from yesterdays session at Dendy Street with a 22.4ft rocket air!The G-Force on the landing was pretty high at 4.4 so no doubt it was a knee shattering jump, that's what we want!!!Hock is coming at a close 2nd, at 20ft, and I've got a feeling this was a forward loop, good it see the boys going huge!

Victor (Victori) "Fernadez", with another big jump in dying wind conditions was a great effort at 17.5ft!

Keep up the good work guys!

We have decided to split the groups up into Bay & Coast sessions, just to ensure we have a level playing field!

At the moment, we have 2 units out! So be sure you drop into the Zu early to reserve your unit for a big session!

Remember, "Keep talking about Flight Club"

So.... Make sure you drop into The ZU Boardsports to pick up your WOO Unit and see how high you are!!

Ok it has been a bit quite a while due to light winds but we have a new leader, Tao manage to clock 28ft at the 13th beach bombie yesterday (respect !)
And we have 7-20Ft waves forecast for the next few days and we have already had 4 people (you know who you are) requesting the Woo, this could get interesting ! Stay tuned !
