WOF 2014 / 2015

It's this time of the year again: Do your WOF!

WOFs are compulsory in NZ and give you a good chance to check out your equipment early in the season. We are also doing a sausage sizzle, so bring some drinks (and food if you would like anything other than the club sausages) to catch up with everyone else. Any excuse for a little party....

Season 2014 /2015 - get ready!!

Feels like spring - we are keen to start teaching again: On 1 September we officially start again with new paragliding courses, kitesurfing and paramotoring. A bunch of you have already signed up and are sorted with new gear. 

If you or a friend wants to start flying or kiting this season, SIGN UP now and get a DISCOUNT if you pay by 30 August. We can also offer some specials on package deals for PG2 and equipment.

Bright Course 2015


TWO places left on the course! Join us!! We have published the dates early to make it easy for those who need to book their holidays from work.

6 - 14 March 2015.

This is a very special, annual event: The Wings & Waves Team takes a group of PG 2 pilots to our favourite thermalling place in Australia for a week’s thermalling and XC course.

Bright is a wonderful alpine town in the NE of Victoria and offers great flying sites, a great sceneary, reliable conditions and lots to do when you are not flying. We are going in the middle of February when it is nice and warm and the flying conditions wonderful.

Winter Special for courses

During the middle of the winter, we decided not to waste anyones time dragging you through mud and wind and weather trying to learn to paraglide, but instead we are taking our well-dserved annual break.

The best time to start your paragliding career is the beginning of the 2014 / 2015 season, being September 2014.

Those who book early, can take advantage of our annual Winter SPECIAL: Any bookings for September and October will be reduced. PG 1 courses are $599 instead of $660, One Day courses are $199 instead of $240, trial flights are $169 insead of $190 if paid in by 30 August. Please book by email.

Winter 2014

Well deserved, no doubt, Eva and Reuben are taking it easy for the month of July. The weather for paragliding is pretty terrible: Either too windy or no wind at all, no thermals, no sea breaze, muddy ground and cold. 

We are still available via email or on the cell phones for orders, advise or bookings for the new season. We won't be in the office every day or on the landline as we usually are. Email replies may take a little longer than usual, but will happen. 

September is usually the best time to start again.

NZ Nationals - GIN gliders win all around

Reuben won EN C and EN B class: on his GIN CarreraReuben won EN C and EN B class: on his GIN Carrera

The Tasman Club in Nelson on the South Island of New Zealand, recently hosted the first part of the NZ Nationals Paragliding. With 5 valid task, flown at 3 different locations, this was a successful competition.

A few of our Wings & Waves Pilots were there on the GIN Gliders - and did exceptionally well. Reuben Muir, Wings & Waves instructor and owner, lead the competition up to the last day, on his EN B glider GIN Carrera, in front of comp gliders and a wave of the latest EN C's and the likes. It was neck on neck within a couple of points for days, with Itai Almong on his Delta 2 from Queenstown / Israel right behind him. On the last day though, GIN pilot Grant Middendorf blitzed both of them convincingly, and took the first place over all, in front of Reuben in second place. Nothing like being being beaten by your mate… :-)
