National Watersports Festival 2013

Starting out life as the National Windsurfing Festival, for 2013 the decision was taken to include kayaking, kitesurfing and stand up paddle, (SUP) in the event and to change the name of the festival to National Watersports Festival (NWF).

The event saw over 600 people from all age groups descend on Hayling Island and they spent the weekend participating in watersports competitions, night racing, night tow-in and free taster sessions in windsurfing, kitesurfing, SUP and kayaking, and with free clinics by pro riders and instructors, and not forgetting the impressive support from the watersports industry who came out in force to line the beaches and the trade marquees, oh and the infamous parties; this festival certainly lived up to its claims of being and ‘an all-inclusive people festival’.

The event was a huge success and we are already looking forward to next years event!
