Throw Down or Blow Down at Beach Break Live

New for 2012 the SWA has teamed up with Beach Break Live. With eight miles of world class beach at our disposal and Beach Break Live welcoming us on board, we couldn’t let the opportunity fly by so 2012 sees the launch of a one of a kind, inter-university windsurfing competition by the Student Windsurfing Association and hosted by Beach Break Live!

Thanks to the soaring success of last year’s Student Extreme Games at Beach Break Live featuring Kite, Wake and Snow disciplines, the SWA will this year be pulling out all the stops to throw the ultimate Windsurf competition, at a festival, on our very own beach, in June! No other festival gives your club the opportunity to get involved in a unique competition quite like BBL.

Beach Break Live

Beach Break Live is a stunning festival of magic and memories, combining a killer-line up, a beautiful eight mile beach, 500 acres of epic woodland, four days and four nights of frivolous fun with 20,000 like-minded souls celebrating the end of exams and the start of summer with a vibe unrivalled by any other festival!

The wind gods will be kind, the sun will shine and we will be putting on a freestyle jam of epic proportions with windsurfing demos, master blaster competition and more free sailing than you can fill your sails with! Swanky new kit will be provided simply through your BBL ticket, fill in the application form (link below) and remember to pack your wetsuit.

Any windsurfing society can get their riders involved and compete head to head with dozens of universities around the country for big prizes and bigger kudos! Bring down your loyal members to support, take home the glory, then carry on the merrymaking with 20,000 likeminded revelers!

Riders ready, it’s time to Throw Down or Blow Down!

BBL TICKETS: 5 for the price of 4 = £87 each

(If you plan to compete or simply free sail at BBL it is compulsory to fill in the online Throw Down or Blow Down application form prior to the festival. No form, no sail.)
