WINDFEST - In Association with Flexifoil and RipCurl

The annual Windfest event will be taking place on 2nd and 3rd October on the English Riviera. Celebrating the growth of extreme sports, Windfest will as usual be providing a safe, informative and fun atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.

Taking place on Paignton Green, right on the seafront, events will consist of windsurfing, kiteboarding, kites, buggies, mountain boards, skateboarding and much, much more. Not only will the experts be showing off their skills, such as on the long skateboard slalom event (designed by Lush), but also Windfest as usual offer beginners the chance to participate themselves without the pressure of feeling embarrassed.

There will be a trade village set up where top manufacturers will be displaying their wares; Flexifoil will be showing off their range of kites including the new Storm 3; Trampa will be demoing mountain boards on a small ramp with a "try before you buy" option; RipCurl will be giving a taster of next year's ranges; Kio will have some new boards on show. And that's just scratching the surface!

A hog roast and beer lorry will be present throughout the day should you need to eat and drink, and in true Windfest style a couple of parties have been arranged so that you can enjoy the atmosphere to the full. Inn On The Green, Paignton, will be hosting a get together on the Friday night (1st Oct) to start the weekend off, and on the Saturday night the party will move across the road to the Light House for an 8pm start until late.

Ron Smith, the event organiser, said: "Windfest is about new people, both young and old, getting into the different sports we have on show. This will be the third year we have held Windfest in Paignton and it is the perfect venue to showcase the event as the town attracts people of all different ages."
