Note: this competition is over – the prize has been won by John Humberstone
Imagine joining a club, giving you the option to use the latest 2011 equipment, with full rescue cover, and your kit rigged up for you on one of the South Coast’s best beaches? Yes, it’s hard to believe but such a place does exist in the UK with the X-Train / West Wittering Windsurfing Club holiday centre style hire scheme for windsurfing, kitesurfing or SUP.
THE HIRE PACKAGE
How it works…
Step 1: Call the day before to book your gear over the phone
Step 2: Arrive on the beach pick your rigged gear up and get out on the water, change sizes of equipment if wind speed changes.
Step 3: Return gear to beach
Step 4: Wind drops take out a SUP. A great light wind alternative!
Step 5: Drive home after having a great day, no worries about putting gear in garage!
How it works…
Step 1: Count how many windsurfing boards are in the main picture (also printed in the March issue of BOARDS Mag)
Step 2: Scroll to the bottom of this page
Step 3: Type in the number of boards you counted, and an email address
Step 4: Fingers crossed until the prize is drawn on 31 March 2011

We also have the new 2011 RRD EZZY test centre with guest boards from Fanatic and Quatro, a new line of wind SUPs, sub 10ft SUPs, surf and kite gear.
Take a look at our WIND/SUP/KITE hire rental package -where you can change between the new Ezzy panther 3s from 3.7 to 6.3, use light wind Infinitys 7.5 and choose board sizes and styles from 75 to 200 ltr all in the latest 2011 ltd construction. We only use top of the range Ezzy full carbon masts and Chinook booms so you will find our gear is so much better than most test centres abroad. If there is no wind you can SUP or fancy a change, then go kiting. We are open 7 days a week from March 1st and have rescue cover throughout that time.
