The Student Windsurfing Association
Mark Warner is one of the most highly regarded tour operators in the UK, offering a mix of ski and beach activity holidays all over Europe. They'll be running our Beginner Beach and keeping an eye out for potential staff for their Summer 2018 season, as well as offering funding towards further instructor training as a prize for a lucky winner!
With beach resorts in Greece, Sardinia and Corsica, they offer countless opportunities for employment abroad. If you're already a qualified RYA Windsurfing and/or Sailing Instructor, you should definitely keep Mark Warner in mind for summer and post uni jobs! Likewise, if you've enjoyed your windsurfing holiday with your uni club this year and feel like one week in the sun just isn't enough, think about doing your instructor course ̶ because two months of windsurfing is a whole lot better than just a week! And it's better than free, they actually pay you to do it.
As a member of the waterfront team, there will be some actual work involved. You'll be able to teach a range of ages and abilities, which include RYA courses, informal group sessions and private one-to-one tuition. But alongside this, you'll have loads of opportunities to improve your own windsurfing, as well as trying new sports, and having free use of all the Mark Warner facilities during your spare time. Being surrounded by other watersports enthusiasts all the time also means that it's basically like one long SWA event, except that everyone's tanned and blond and wearing even less clothing! So, what's not to like?

What words can we use to explain the awesomeness of Boardwise? ... Well I suppose awesome is a good place to start!!

Their trusty van is ever present at SWA events throughout the calendar, lending out £1000s worth of kit to windsurfers of all abilities. We are delighted to have them as a Platinum Sponsor for the 2017-18 season!

Boardwise are a UK-based boardsports company who have been in operation for over 30 years. Their enthusiastic team of watersports boffins are always on hand to lend friendly advice, making sure you find the equipment you need. There is no item big or small that Boardwise don't offer, UJs, Extensions, Rope, Footstraps, Fins, Harnesses and Lines, Screws, the lot! It's a one stop shop of super stock!  On top of this Boardwise are able to provide a speedy, professional repairs service for all dings and punctures, this can be easily arranged and collected at any SWA core event, well handy!

Whilst they can cater extremely well to our speciality of windsurfing, Boardwise also provide equipment for other Watersports including Stand Up Paddleboarding (or SUPping, which features frequently in SWA Low Wind Olympics), as well as just your standard surfing and bodyboarding. Of course, boards aren't just needed on the water and Boardwise also have a range of snowboard equipment and accessories for those winter months where the lakes are frozen over! If there's one thing you can rely on, it's that Boardwise are happy to give out their specialist knowledge and good advice when buying any board-related kit.

I can still remember the first time I showed up at an SWA event, a pure beginner who had never touched anything on a windsurf rig before. Boardwise were there helping me find equipment and get out on to the water for the first time and although I'm borrowing harnesses now instead of buoyancy aids, I'll know the kit van will still be there years later, helping the next generation. Boardwise are part of the SWA family!

We love you Boardwise!
