The Student Windsurfing Association

Another fantastic year in the SWA calendar has drawn to a close and what a year it has been!

Aussie Kiss 4 kick started the year off with a bang down in Devon and was a great weekend for beginner windsurfers and advanced party goers alike. A fantastic freestyle competition was won by Southampton's Dave Dawson.

Everyone at AK4!
