Final T15 Interclub event for the South Zone is this coming Sunday 19th August, hosted by the awesome Watersports Academy in Poole.
This is what they say: “Registration will open 9:00 with briefing at 10:15 and first race at 11:00. The aim will be to finish around 16:00. We have a café which has snacks and drinks but there is a Tesco Express 100m down the road.”
Weymouth Warriors – please let us know if you plan to go!
We’re pleased to announce we’ll have Liquid Force Kiteboarding UK at the centre this weekend, for a demo and a look at their latest and greatest kit. Come along and meet the Liquid Force Kites team.

We’re stoked to be welcoming Pete back to the centre on Monday 13th August. To read more about the clinic, click here. Places on the clinic are limited and filling up fast, so if you want to come and join in, just call the centre on 07817 717904 or 01305 230296.
Great day yesterday, with 19 competitors from three clubs. The winds were light, but it didn’t stop a mass of races being completed – results here. Massive congratulations to the Weymouth Warriors, who took the event win for the second time, followed closely by the Academy Allstars and Axbridge Animals in third.
The next event is at Axbridge on the 21st July – hope to see you all there then.
We were very pleased to host the first event of the Team 15 South Zone calendar last weekend.

Many congratulations to Will’s Weymouth Warriors for taking the first bullet of the series! Also, many thanks to all the competitors and their parents for making the pilgrimage to our door. Next event is once again with us on Saturday June 23rd. Hope to welcome yet more to our doors then!

We are very pleased to be able to announce that we are going to be hosting lots of training camps over the winter months. Our adventure trips in Northern California and NWF Winter Windsurfing Camps have been running for many years now, and are suited for all windsurfing abilities, focussing on everything from core skills, to slalom training and even onto foiling for this year. And following the success of the Techno Winter Camps last year, we are very pleased to announce that they will be running again this winter, with the added bonus of being spearheaded by Ali Masters. For more information on each, click on the event shields below.
We are really pleased to announce that we will be hosting the inaugural Ross Williams Clinic this autumn half-term.

The format for each day will be determined by those on the course, with the following options available:
- Core skills training, covering everything from water starting to gybing and looping.
- Slalom training.
- A tour to the local wave breaks.
- Introduction to windsurf foiling.
There will photography and filming from some of the best in the industry throughout the week and some MEGA deals to be had on new and ex-demo kit for the participants.
