The Student Windsurfing Association

After arriving in Bangor (the party capital of North Wales) on the Friday night, the keen windsurfers were assigned to each of their lovely host houses - all peachy and fresh from the drive up (which in fairness is a bit of a mission for most)! Here they proceeded to dump their stuff and get changed before being ferried to an exclusive #Windsurfing takeover in Feral Cat - one of Bangors best bars - to get a groove on to some premium tunes from the best selectors in North Wales.

An equal number of guy and girl entrants in a wave comp, the Queen beats a Mexican (in beer pong), and Sam Tyler forgets everything from Saturday night...

This is the PlymEx 2018 round up! And you definitely want to read on!

On a cold, wet and windy Saturday morning, the best of the best (in terms of self motivation at least) of the Student Wavesailing community descended on Gwithian car park. The meeting point was chosen, partly for the free parking, but mainly because it was a good spot for wave sailing.

Imperial College Windsurfing Club and the SWA are pleased to announce ... Soggy Cockney II: Return of Big Jon, on 16th-18th of February 2018! Soggy Cockney will provide a platform for windsurfers of all abilities to partake in windseshing!

Following the great success of Soggy Cockney: London’s Calling, Imperial College Windsurfing Club are holding yet another event, cramming SWA members into their London houses and windsurfing at Queen Mary Reservoir.

After a year apart, the SWA returned to Bristol for the first Core Event of the year: BaBrUWE Wet Dreams 8! With the combined forces Bristol, UWE and newly-reformed Bath organising the event, expectations were high. A hundred and fifty students made the journey down (or up) on Friday night, excited at the prospect of not sleeping in a tent and ready to see what Bristol has to offer…
