The NSW Wavesailing Association (NSWWA) will be heading back to Flat Rock, Ballina between the 27th and 29th of September for The Wavesailing State of Origin II. Once again the best windsurfers from NSW and Queensland will be meeting to determine whether the north or south of wavesailing is the greatest. Continue reading
This weekend’s looking unreal with 20-25knots of wind forecast all day Saturday. Sign on will be at the Birubi Beach Carpark until 11am SHARP.
There is a possibility of relocation depending on the wind angle (We are still not sure of the exact angle wether its going to be more South West or South) so we need everyone signed on by 11am.
CREST café will be open at 8:30am serving awesome bacon and egg rolls and coffee so get there as early as possible as it will be windy.
Its going to be a huge day so make the effort and get there!!! See you bright and early on Saturday. Yeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwww!!!

Just a regular day at Birubi.
Due to a very unfavourable forecast for this weekends event, it was decided to try and reschedule the event to the following weekend 30-31st August. This big east coast low has mucked up the usual winter pattern we are used to at this time of the year! Hope you all got amongst it in some way over the past couple of days.
We have been able to persuade all the relevant authorities and have been granted permission for the new date, this is a big task given the usual red tape behind large organisations. Thanks to the Port Stephens Council and the Roads and Maritime Services for working through the request.
Our accommodation partner is happy to change anyones bookings to the next weekend. So please call them today or tomorrow to make the new arrangements.
Thankyou all in advance for the understanding in regards to this big decision. The NSW Wavesailing aim is to get everyone out on the water to enjoy the sport of wavesailing so hopefully we will see you all there on the 30-31st, with a big winter cold front westerly blowing.
Cheers, George – NSWWA President
23rd – 24th August is the first event for the 2014-15 NSW Wavesailing season. Birubi beach Nelson Bay is the location, this is without a doubt the best and most consistent winter westerly location on the east coast.
Get out the steamers and dust off the cobwebs with the awesome new format where you sail all day with no heats, no sitting on the beach getting cold.
You’ll be able to warm up on Saturday at our entertainment sponsors establishment ANNA BAY TAVERN. They are putting on a 2 course meal and drinks for the gang.

Wind or not this is going to be a great weekend to get away and catch up with the wavesailing crew.
Be there or else!
