The AussieKiss is BACK! And this year it's even bigger.....

NEWS: Jem Hall and Jim Collis will be there running advanced windsurfing clinics



Students, Ex-Students, Mincers and most importantly Freshers, welcome to the largest windsurfing event on the planet!!!


 In its fourth year now, the SWA Festival has adopted quite a following since its humble beginning in 2001: last year saw a record of 350 windsurfers and over 600 party-goers enjoy a mind-blowing weekend of fun and frolics both on and off the water.


 However in 2005 it's time to go West?no longer satisfied with the somewhat inconvenient conditions thrown up at Weymouth on the South coast, the SWA has flown to pastures new, namely Roadford Lake, North Devon.



We shall be sleeping, partying and eating at Bude Holiday Park, and enjoying top class tuition and brand spanking new demo kit at Roadford Lake.


Watch out, this year it's all about the beginner: whether you've never stepped on a board before, you're a beach starting/flare gybing nymphet, or a water starting/freeeeestyyyling pro, the aim is to take you to the next level and blow your fears out of the water!




Representatives from all areas of the windsurf industry will be turning up at the event to offer helpful tips and advice.  The lastest demo kit will be available for all to try and a huge range of freebies and prizes will be up for grabs.  Confirmed attendees so far include the likes of Boardwise, Starboard and Tushingham, Naish, Boards Magazine, Ultrasport, 604 Distribution (F2, Fanatic) and Windsurf Magazine.
