Over the two day event 1500 people turned up to the UKs no 1 windsurfing
and kitesurfing demo.The high pressure which has dominated the UK for the
last two months seemed to continue and we had only marginal winds from the
south east over the weekend.
The soaring temp and sunshine made a great atmosphere and gave chance for
much of the intermediate kit to be thoughly tested.The major players were
all there including F2,Arrows Team Whiteboarders,Mistral
Pryde and Da kine.
On the kitesurfing side we had
RRD,Cabrinha,Flexifoil,Slingshot,Brunotti,North and Fanatic.
Sat night was the 2XS party night sponsored by Cabrinha and Chiemsee ,this
was held at Pump Bottom Farm home of the Blues and Jazz festival .The party
went of big style ,with a banquette of food and pig roast outside with
fires to keep the 250 people who attended warm.Later the DJ Fabien Bull
kicked off until closing time playing some awesome tunes.
Sunday morning arrived with some 12 knots of wind so we had some action on
the water.Many of the kitesurfers were out in the Wittering lagoon showing
how West Wittering is good for kitesurfing and how they can co exist with
windsurfers.Neil Gent,Stu Holland ,The Brockways,James from Brunotti and
Chris Martin from Cabriha were out on the water when Meridian Tv was there
to film the event.
For the the remainder of the day nearly all the larger windsurf kit was out
on test Dave White from Team Whiteboarders commented " despite the lack
wind for the last two months the enthusiasm for windsurfing still is very
strong particularly among ladies,kitesurfing makes an event like this a
bigger spectacle and draws people to the water."
