    Back home for a month in Christchurch, light wind and low tides got me down... Anywhere to get a dirt cheap board from? I won't be able to take it back to Japan so it has to be cheap :)

  • Howdy Kiters Looks like a nice little low pressure spot is rolling in from the the North West tomorrow over Northland and down into Auckland. My prediction for the Hot Spot tomorrow would be Eastern Beach at 5pm. With low tide scheduled for 17:08 and for 25 knots easterly, this will be going off. Race you there after work! [attachment]

    Did this trip ever happen? I've moved to Kerikeri from Christchurch and would be up for it if anyone would consider the full beach buggy? Andy

    I found this site the other day and thought i'd give it a go Most of the materials were around the house and i ended up substituting wood for the cutting board and copper tube for the PVC tube (found it had too much flex) and purchased the T connectors from mega mitre10 Here's my end result and the masterplan

  • Ozone are helping to make kitesurfing safer in Raglan this summer with the generous donation of a brand new kite to be auctioned with all proceeds going to Raglan Coastguard. Ozone is one the worlds leading kitesurf brands. They moved their Kitesports Division to Raglan in 2008 to take advantage of consistent winds, clean water and a New Zealand lifestyle. Matt Taggart, managing director of Ozone Kites & Kitesurf recognises the role that coastguard play in keeping kiters safe on their home patch: “Its amazing to have the expertise of the Raglan Coastguard Team and its something we probably all take for granted. We recently donated a kite to the Raglan Fire Service auction evening and wished to also support the Coastguard Team in recognition of two organisations that put so much into our community.” Raglan Coastguard operates entirely as a volunteer organisation. Working in the challenging waters around Raglan, they rely on donations to ensure the crews have the best possible equipment to do their job. Kitesurfers are some of Raglan's main water users, with up to 100 kiters hitting the water over a busy summer weekend. While most kitesurfers are well trained and safety conscious, as in any water-sport, occasionally things go wrong and the Coastguard has been called to assist on a number of occasions. Special training sessions are even carried out by the unit to make sure that crews can safely and effectively rescue kiters in distress. A brand new 2013 Catalyst 10m2, complete with bar and lines, will be auctioned on Trademe just in time for Christmas. The Catalyst is suitable for all experience levels, and would make a perfect beginners kite. Kitesurfing design has radically changed in the past three years making it a far safer sport as the industry has matured and boomed. The growth of kiting in the past year or two can easily be seen on most days here in Raglan with 12 to 65 year olds loving Raglans world class spot. Trademe Auction Link: Check it out at: All proceeds from this auction will go directly to Raglan coastguard, and it is a fully tax deductible charity donation. Kitesurfing lessons are available from Raglan Kitesurf School so if you fancy getting into this amazing sport go for the bidding and book a lesson with Raglan Kitesurfing School. Raglan Coastguard are very grateful to Ozone for their support and look forward to working together to keeping kiting safe and fun. Come to Raglan and enjoy a water-sports paradise right on your doorstep.

    Hi Tim Gutting to hear about your lost board. Did you have name and mobile on this one? Will probably be found by the older folks out at Clark's on their morning strolls! BTW: where did you launch from at Clarke's Beach? What was is like? Wind direction, tide, conditions etc? Cheers Jase
