e sailing some waves today, but it's been a while since my last wave sail (>1 year), so I don't want to go into massive waves in a dead on shore. Thinking of Narrowneck or beechmere, but open to suggestions. Where are people going today? >>

been windsurfing for just on eight weeks now - trying to get out as much as possible - have had two weeks off work and have been out a few times. I generally get to Wello and have met some really nice people - windsurfing people seem to be very friendly - it certainly helps when you feel, man I am just going to sell the board Too Hard! I am 105k - purchased a 200l mistral pacifico with a dodgy retro 4.5m sail and rig, was enough to get me going - I did purchase a new Severne 6m synergy this week from Simon at Board Crazy and have been out once so far - wow what a difference. Not sure if it my imagination but it seemed to be more forgiving - or maybe I am getting better perhaps a bit of both. Took it to the train and had a really good run to the sand bank and back a few times. Arms are canning now though next it has to be the harness. Do feel as though I have progressed but soooooo much more to learn. The Windsurfin... >>

for some racing on Sunday >>
- Go to forum >
Round 3 of the WQ slalom series is this Sunday (2nd December). Please arrive at Wellington Point by 12pm so everyone has time to sign on by 1pm.
Current forecast is 10-15 knots ESE. Surely with the law of averages, taking into account the 2 round 2 attempts, we are due some wind! See you at Wello.
Round 2 of the slalom series will be re-run on sunday the 18th november, at Darling Point Manly. There will be no further charge to competitors who attended the event on the 4th. New entrants are welcome, the race fee will be $15.00. Sign on is at 12pm sharp closing at 1pm with race briefing at 1.15pm. Racing will start at 2pm.
We look forward to a good turn out and lets hope for some better winds. See you on the water!

Two New WQ Clubs
Two new clubs are now affiliated to Windsurfing Queensland. They are (in their own words):
WindWanderers endeavour to put the social fun into windsurfing by uniting like minded sailors to sail at different venues between Noosa and Currumbin on a monthly basis. Events will be non-competitive social gatherings held at locations suitable for great sailing and a great family and social atmosphere. It is hoped that joining sailors of all experiences together will raise the standard and fun factor for all involved.
The idea behind SEQ Wavesailing is to offer wave and freestyle sailors in the south east of Queensland a club that will meet their needs, and third party insurance for a little added peace of mind. We will be looking to promote social and competitive events across the Gold and Sunshine Coasts to give the experienced sailors a chance to shine and offer those who are making their first jumps or bottom turns the opportunity to learn from others.
Both clubs look like they are set to make the best of the season with a number of awesome events scheduled to help us all get out on the water in a fun and social atmosphere.
You now have four clubs to choose from, all with varying venues and covering most of the disciplines from Freestyle to long boarding. We welcome all of the new clubs and wish them all the best in their first year as independent entities. We hope you can all get behind the clubs to ensure they are here for us all to enjoy again next season.
The 2009 Neilpryde Australian Wavesailing Titles are to run between the 3rd and 8th of February at Marrawah, Tasmania.
