Ever wanted to try a new water-sport? Well, there has never been a better time! During the weekend of 25th and 26th May, the OTC will be providing discounted tasters in both windsurfing and stand up paddling (SUP). For just £15.00 per person, you can have a go at windsurfing (which is a discount of over 65%), or just £5.00 for SUPing. This Open Weekend compliments the RYA’s initiative call Push the Boat Out, intending to get more people more active on the water.
The tasters need to be booked in advance, so call the centre on 01305 230296 / 07817 717904 and book yourself a session, as space is limited.
We are very pleased to announce the news that the Onewheel Pint will be coming to the UK this summer. Future Motion has listened to feedback and spent a considerable amount of time and energy in producing a more affordable option that lives up to the Onewheel name and reputation.
Onewheels are unique light electric vehicles that are as close an experience to snowboarding or surfing as you will have on dry land. And now, with the Pint, a lot more people will be able to enjoy the Onewheel experience. If you’re looking for that signature Onewheel riding experience at an affordable price, Pint is the call. Due in August, the Pint is likely to retail at £1049.00 (£1099.00 for Sage) and is a steal and perfect for life on the go, quick stoke sessions, zooming around college campuses, coffee runs, family fun, dog walks, micro-adventures and defeating boredom.
Onewheel Pint Specs:
Colors: Slate / Sand / ***Sage (exclusive one time only launch colour £50.00 more)***
Onewheel Pint, Sage is a limited colourway. Once the initial production run of this colourway is complete, it will not be repeated. That means Sage will become a collectors’ item and maintain a very high resale value and will be available in limited numbers for just £50.00 more.
Can’t Wait? Why not go all-out with the XR?!
The Pint is an addition to the family; an offering for those looking for an affordable pathway to the Onewheel experience. If you’d like the ultimate experience, the Onewheel+XR remains the flagship product in every way. The riding experience is unmatched; it gets industry leading range (18 miles) and it’s incredibly rugged – it’s built for long commutes or big off-road adventures. And what is more, the XR is in stock and available right now for £1849.00.
