Windsurfing has been buzzing again this last few weeks with some wind at last and the excitement is building as Puravida Boardriders prepare for the biggest local water sports event in Wales this year!
With the addition of SUP and Kitesurfing it doesn’t matter what the weather brings – we will get all the family on the water and run a fun relay be it powered by wind or paddles!!!
The Tenby Caldy Island Relay will be run as always across the last August Bank Holiday on 23rd/24th. The main demo and race days are Saturday and Sunday with free clinic time from our stars, stacks of kit to try out from the latest ranges across the brands and the fun race itself – the Caldy Island Relay.
This will be a fantastic family event with Windsurf and SUP gear for all members to enjoy from the kids upwards…and this year we will also be including Kitesurfing for the first time with thanks to North Kiteboarding!
The famous Saturday night BBQ is firmly in place and there may even be a live Rock Band!! Tenby town is a great place to be over the summer holiday with o shortage of nightlife to enjoy.
There will be stacks of demo kit on hand and some ripping pro sailors to join your teams as we do every year…each team will get assigned a top sailor to boost their chances and provide some top notch kit! Some of the confirmed guests already:
