Yes, we are still around and sailing in large numbers. Our new Australian website at https://windsurferclass.wordpress.com/ shows the Windsurfer history in Australia, the champions it has inspired and the activities and events. The site is packed with tips on sailing, racing, maintenance and free-styling that may be applied to other sailboard classes. Check it out

Excellent! Watching Dennis W. sail in the Kona One World Championship says much of your fleet's high level.

Nice one.

I learned to windsurf at Narrabeen lakes in the 80s. Don't remember them having much racing back then.

Ted Schweitzer is still fueling the stoke with demos, and fun events, and traveling to many events with his revisited 'original windsurfer'.

Here's a recent link to one of his recent regattas:

There's no web site. Just a notice via e-mail and announcement on this and other forums.

It was a great event. Beginners to experts. We all have the old school rigs, not the fancy newer ones the Aussies use.

Participants included an ex-IMCO National Champion, the current Kona lightweight World champion, and an ex-Olympian. But none of them could stay close to the winner.

Results and pictures shortly.

Takes me back to the old Windsurfer Nationals with 200+ sailors... and no harness allowed.
Australia keeps the flame alive for fun,low-cost one-design sailing because of the excellent grassroots sailing clubs that are in communities everywhere.
