The Student Windsurfing Association

In 2016 Aussie Kiss changed it’s format, and for the first time in the event’s history students were permitted to camp right at Roadford Reservoir. This made the event the most intimate experience yet. Camping is always a fun and social way to escape the stress of urban living and breathe in the country fresh air to chill out for a weekend. With no travel requirements Saturday or Sunday it’s as easy as rolling out of bed on onto a Windsurf… Just the way we like it.

It’s likely that most of those looking to attend Aussie Kiss have spent a night in a tent, but it’s always worth skimming our top camping tips to be sure you’re up to scratch and you don’t forget any campsite essentials!

Aussie Kiss - The Good the Bad and the Bubbly.

‘Aussie Kiss’ is a phrase that is almost as old as the SWA with almost as strong of a reputation. It is the crown jewel of the SWA event series eagerly anticipated by many every year whilst spoken about for many months to come. Every year it stands as the proud SWA beacon that welcomes fresh faced Windsurfers to its warming glow. It shakes down the end of summer blues and reignites the windsurfing spark in everyone’s heart. It is, quite frankly, only just shy of a national treasure. For those reading this, in which this phrase is but a poorly considered innuendo, read on, for over the space of the next 3 minutes we shall enlighten you to your new found pasture of student windsurfing revelry!

Hey guys!

So as you all know it’s my birthday coming up, and I have decided to do something really special.
You, and hundreds of my closest friends are invited to come and party with me to celebrate my super sweet 16.

On the 20th to the 22nd of October we will be jumping in our limos and having a water side fiesta at Roadford lake on the border between Devon and Cornwall!
Make sure you bring your glamping equipment so that we all look our best together in the camping field. I know you’ll all have luxury goose feather sleeping bags so that you don’t get cold!
