After a frustrating wait at Hayling Island last weekend the British Slalom Association competitors next stop will be Quiver Windsurfing in Essex, on the 16th and 17th of May.
The weekend event won't just be about slalom hire as Quiver Windsurfing will be running tuition and have demo equipment on offer too. We've said it before and we'll say it again, you don't have to be a slalom pro to go to a slalom event. Aside from the top sailors in the pro fleet you are more likely to see people out on freeride/freerace gear just having fun, rather than trying to plane out of every gybe. The BSA run a variety of fleets, for every level.
