Most importantly, the WWA is a very active political voice for windsurfers, dealing with maritime authorities and local government issues. Successful projects to date include the preservation of beach access, and no compulsory life jackets for windsurfers.Work continues on maintaining beach access & rigging areas (in particular Plimmerton) and the Lyall Bay surf reef.

So join and support this great sport in Wellington !
