ABOUT WINDSURFING QUEENSLAND
Windsurfing Queensland oversees the sport of Windsurfing throughout Queensland. We work in association with all intra state clubs to promote and develop windsurfing in all its forms. Windsurfing Queensland is run by a group of volunteers, passionate about the sport and its promotion within the state. The club is an incorporated, not for profit organisation and therefore requires an elected committee.
The current committee is as follows:
Scot Farley – President and Secretary
Shari O'Brien – Vice President
Tony Matta – Treasurer
Mark Harper + Richard Jack - Publicity Officers
Scot Farley - AWA Representative
Bayside Sailboard Club – Simon Fyfe
Windwanderers Club Rep - Anne Lewis
Brisbane Windsurfing Club - Padi
QLD Freewave Association Rep - Tim Pitcher
LCSC - Tony Matta
RQYS - Cameron Whitford
GCWC - Brendan Moore
Our aim is to provide a strong administrative base to oversee and promote the formation of affiliated clubs. These third party clubs are then free to focus their efforts on running events and promoting the sport throughout the state.
Aside from a small affiliation fee taken from each membership to cover everyday expenses we do not generate an income. This allows the third party affiliated clubs to generate an income from their memberships and as they are "not for profit" clubs. This money goes straight back into the cost of events, running the club and promotion of the sport.
Over the years we have seen that the passion and commitment of a small number of individuals goes a very long way in the promotion of our sport. Windsurfing Queensland aims to provide the platform from which these people can provide this service in a safe way and under the protection of the insurance provided by the Australian Windsurfing Association.
By joining one of the clubs affiliated with Windsurfing Queensland you are entitled to an Official Sail Number, are covered by third party insurance (at all official events held by affiliated clubs Australia wide) and are able to take advantage of all of the many social and competitive events organised by these fantastic organisations.
