First of all congratulations on your results today, and welcome to Leeds. Join our Facebook page (details below) to keep up to date with our news.
GIVE IT A GO! Ours is on the 1st October 2016
Beginners! We love you! Intermediate and Advanced Windsurfers! We love you too! Instructors! We really love you!
We really do welcome all abilities. We have qualified instructors in the club and at our windsurfing venues that provide instruction for all if you fancy improving your skills, or you can just play around and do your own thing. We have a large number of beginners join every year so don’t be scared to give it a try…
Join our facebook group to find out more. We use it for organising all weekend windsurfing and socials.
Leeds Based Windsurfing
“We’re not anywhere near the sea!” I hear you cry. It’s alright, we still manage to go windsurfing often at a local place called Pugneys Country Park. It’s down near Wakefield, easy to get to and great for those of all abilities, especially beginners. There’s even a little café to grab a hot drink from after coming off the water (hallelujah!).
When do we go? Normally on Sundays but if there is demand we can organise more sessions during the week for our keen bees. While members are encouraged to go whenever they want, if it’s a club session it is recommended you sign up for it on the official sign up link (normally at the bottom of this page) or contact a committee member.
We also do a number of club socials ranging from all you can eat meals, to Otley runs. For info on our next social check out the dates at the bottom of the page, they're fun to come to and you meet some really nice people. The Club has also been involved with Action to run volunteering sessions with local schools teaching children to windsurf which is really rewarding. We are currently looking into repeating this so watch out for the details!
SWA Events and Trips
We'll be heading to Student Windsurfing Association (SWA) throughout the year. Nottingham Pondlife, Cardiff Wave and Bristol Wet Dream to name a few for a a weekend of windsurfing, fancy dress and partying. Check them out and the other stuff the SWA do at www.studentwindsurfing.co.uk/
The SWA weekends are open to EVERYONE and are awesome, so whether you simply fancy checking out what windsurfing is about or can consistently pull off flat water front loops the get involved with the next one. At the past SWA events Leeds Windsurfing club has represented itself well with style if not grace, both on and off the water. Tickets are normally available in september so keep an eye open for more info.
