When – Sunday 29th July from 10am.
Where – Gwent Adventures, Llandegfedd Reservoir.
What - a family fun and demo day with local BWA Club members helping to get people on the water windsurfing and paddling (SUP).
Get your mates on the water, teach your kids or anyone who wants to have a go. There will be stacks of demo kit from many of the brands available and rigged up to check out and try on the water.
Kit to view and try from -
Boards – Fanatic, Starboard, Mistral, Simmer, Quattro and brand new Patrik boards.
Sails – North, Simmer, Ezzy, Naish and Tushingham.
SUP – Fanatic, Starboard, Naish, O’Shea
There will be a BBQ available from Gwent Adventures, and if the weather does let us down there will be an event marquee, changing rooms and an event shelter in the rigging area to keep everyone dry.
OTC/Puravida – All of the equipment from both centre’s in Weymouth is heading to South Wales and will be available to test and also for sale with many clearance deals.
Wetsuits – there will be a full selection of summer suits available to try and buy.
Puravida Demo Van – (planned but not promised) the boys are working on a kitting out a big wagon with rigged sails and a selection of windsurf boards and SUP’s that can head to the lakes and beaches of the UK which hopefully will be ready for the 29th.
Starboard/Tushingham representative and top windsurf/SUP coach Sam Ross will be on hand with coaching tips.
Sam will be offering free clinic time, demos and rigging advice as well as some SUP coaching for any newcomers to the sport. Sam will also have a selection of demo kit from Starboard and Tushingham to compliment what OTC/Puravida are already bringing.
So far the weekend forecast looks really good with a nice breeze that should work well at the reservoir.
