Fat Face Ultimate Convoy Swerves to W. Wittering


The Convoy Swerves

 Due to the forecast for South Easterly force 5 the convoy is heading to West Wittering to play tomorrow (Friday) and NOT Bournemouth as previously planned.

Thanks to West Wittering Windsurfing Club for one day only, if you pitch up in the club house and say “I am with the Fat Face Convoy” you will get a bib and be able to sail for free all day (you will need to pay parking).

So same idea – pull a sicky and come and join us.

We will be down there from midday so come and join us for a warm up to the Fat Face night windsurf.

Fat Face Convoy Itinerary


The September Sessions run on the 30th & 31st August in Brandon Bay on the West Coast of Ireland.


The Convoy will depart on Monday 1st Sept and head straight to Kinsale, just south of Cork. They need to check out our brand new Fat Face store there!


After a day and a half of competing in and around Kinsale, the crew will get the Ferry from Rosslare on Tuesday night.


This will give the convoy access to the Gower on Wednesday for a full day of competition and an evening chilling on the beach!  Come down, say hello and tell them where the best surf spots are. We may not get to them all this time but we¹d like to know what floats your board!


Thursday sees an urban contest in the centre of Bristol ­ details TBC but you can also expect something very late at night will cause a bit of a stir!


It¹ll then be on to a South Coast location near Bournemouth on Friday 5th Sept.


The final day of competition will be the now legendary Fat Face Night Windsurf on Saturday 6th Sept on Hayling Island. The last stop, the last competition and a monster party to finish it all off! Who knows, with all that practise, there may even be podium places at the Night Windsurf Prize Giving! 


Fat Face Goodies!


³Join us for Tee² ­ anyone who is able to join the convoy, for any leg of the journey to surf, sail, party with the team, will receive a free limited edition Fat Face Ultimate Convoy tee shirt*.


Fat Face will also have 50 tee shirts up for grabs for people who get involved online. For more information and to register for updates throughout the Ultimate Convoy, click here or log on to: www.fatface.com/convoy
