UKWA 2009 Wave Events  

The first two events of the UKWA Wave tour can be announced.

Wave Round 1: Brandon Bay, hosted by Jamie Knox Watersports
Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th May 2009

Jamie Knox has called these dates using his Crystal Tide/Weather ball and so far his events have never failed to give awesome down-the-line conditions! The ferries should be fairly cheap again this year with a competitors deal although I will confirm that in the New Year. The Swansea-Cork ferry is still not operating so it’s Fishguard or Holyhead for the trip across.

You can also fly with Ryan Air from London Stansted, Luton or Manchester and rent a car at Kerry which is less than an hour from Brandon Bay.  At the moment flights to Kerry for May 2009 are £54 return with Ryan Air. Sports equipment goes at £25 per bag (as of Dec08).

So get that week off work and join us in Ireland – it’s always a cracking event!

Wave Round 2: Rhosneigr, hosted by Funsport.
Friday 15th to Sunday 17th May (Friday Pros only)

The Rhosneigr event will be run alongside the JP/Neil Pryde Slalom event held over the same weekend so if the waves don’t show, pack your slalom kit.

There will be, as always, legendary entertainment including  a night of skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing at Llandudno Ski Slope courtesy of Nigel Treacy, a ‘team meal’ at Rhosneigr followed by some Bangor student night life for those who aren’t in the first heat the next morning!

For help with accommodation contact Lucas or Dave at the shop: 01407 810899

Finally, the Tiree Wave Classic is looking like a certainty this year and will be around the same time in October. I hope to confirm this in the New Year as well as the fourth event.

Have a windy Christmas and a great New Year!
