The Student Windsurfing Association

So it’s getting to that time again, Aussie Kiss!

The biggest student windsurfing festival is just around the corner, we’ve been waiting all year for it, and with over 300 tickets sold it’s going to be a big one!

This is the best opportunity for anyone starting out windsurfing to get a taste of the windy life, and for experienced wind-lovers to trade stories and show off their skills. For all those starting out, you’re probably wondering what is AK and what to bring, luckily we’ve written a big guide here that will hopefully answer all your questions!

With summer in full swing the SWA committee are already hard at work preparing the best parts of the coming year. While we are keeping many of the secrets under our hats, we had one we had to share: Aussie Kiss, the biggest student windsurfing festival in the world, has a new home!

So that’s a wrap for the 2017-18 season, we hope you all had as much fun as we did!

Once again the SWA pulled it out of the bag and, thanks to the hard work of SWA Holiday Coordinator James Arney and Shaka Student Travel, we had an amazing windsurfing holiday in Vassiliki last month!

Despite Eric (the wind created by thermals from a nearby mountain) not making a proper appearance until the last few days, there was still plenty of fun to be had on and off the water. Instead of planing, there was plenty of epic light wind freestyle, and some renegade windsurfers even ditched their kit for paddle boards, kayaks and boats. It was a jam-packed holiday with watersports and partying - there was even the rare sight that is Taffy windsurfing!

Hello, and welcome to the official SWA Event Debrief™  from our last event of the season: Baylord II Gratuitous Seaquels (BUCS Nationals)!
