The SWWKSC are pleased to announce that we will be organising a coaching clinic with 4 times British Freestyle Champion, Lewis Crathern.  This is a fantastic opportunity for us to receive coaching from one of the best riders in the country.

The clinic is planned for the 19th October but as this is obviously a wind dependent event, we would ask that members are also available for the following weekend.  Initially, there will be 10 places available.  The event will be split into two sessions, morning and afternoon, with 5 students in each session.  The sessions will last for 2 and a half hours so there will be plenty of time for Lewis to critique each student.  A decision will be made on the Thursday prior to the event as to the suitability of the conditions and the location (either Porthcawl, Aberavon or Swansea Bay). Riders must be able to ride upwind and safely navigate amongst other kiters.

If you are interested in attending please reply to Sporty (sec.swwksc@gmail.com) by Monday 9th of September. A deposit of £25 per person is required and the club will be contributing the remaining £20. In the event that there are more members than places, names will be drawn at random.  Any unsuccessful members will be placed on a list for the next clinic. We will ensure that all members are given the opportunity to attend a clinic. We are also considering a wave clinic if there is enough interest.

Good winds.

Yeah, we just saw that! Doh!.  Anyhow, we should be OK, fortunately the tide times are favourable at Rest on that day.  As Rest and Aber are usable in very similar wind directions, if it's suitable for Aber, then hopefully Rest should be OK too, so we'll use that beach.  If not, Aber is massive and there will only be 5 of us on the water at any one time, so hopefully we can work it out.  (You'll just have to take your students next to the steel works outlet. Very Happy )

Guys,

Just a quick update for you. James has spoken to Lewis and have decided to make a decision tomorrow lunchtime, but early signs are that Sunday 20th Oct at Rest Bay may offer the best chance of a successful day. I will email you again as soon as I have more news for you.

Looking forward to it now!

Hi All,

Some more details of the event on Sunday at Pembrey.

We are meeting at the carpark on the attached photo at 10:30hrs on Sunday 20th October.  It will be a long day, so please ensure you bring enough food and drinks to sustain you through the day.  There will be a short session in the morning, followed by a lunchbreak, and the a longer afternoon session.  Expect the weather to be changeable, but I guess we're all used to that by now.  Lewis will be bringing a selection of 'Best' kites if you'd like to try one out, but you may prefer to be on your own kit as this will be what you are most familiar with.  

A local photographer has been arranged, so some action shots should be available.

I think we are all familiar with Pembrey, but in case you are not, the postcode to put into your satnav is SA16 0EJ.  Please make a note just in case.

Any questions, please let me know.

Please remember to bring your contribution of £25 for the day.

I'm sure it will be a great day, look forward to seeing you all there.

Sporty
