The kitesurfing lifestyle and community has always been a focus for us since day one, that's why we're always on hand ready to help, why we run so many socials and why we operate the Poseidon Beach Club.
Summer might be over and winter just around the corner, but for us autumn is the season we wait for...
The windy season, as we like to call it is the time of year when the summer's energy keeps giving back, serving up solid low pressure systems that drive in from the Atlantic, pushing strong and regular winds which blow consistently over the still mild harbour waters.
Holy moly! It’s been a serious summer of wind so far, hence our silence on the blog. We’ve had some solid days down here in the harbour which has been great for our new comers, regulars and even a few old timers too.
This weekend we hosted The Ozone Global Demo Event for their UK Stop.
The ozone team flew in every model in every size kite for demo, including new to the market R1 foil kites. Saturday was a busy day with Team Rider Ryan Coote holding a wave riding talk, followed by a BBQ by ozone and pale ale from The Brew Shack. Sunday was a relaxed day down the beach with a couple of 17m zephyrs out on the water and the new 15m chrono.
Over the weekend of the 4th & 5th June, Ozone's Global Demo Tour arrives at Poseidon here in sandbanks.
On a world wide tour promoting Ozone and their new kite kit, Iain Hannay (Ozone General Manager), Ryan Coote (International Team Rider) and Tom Beaton (UK Distributor), will be stopping in for the weekend with a full size range of every model kite Ozone has to offer.
Next week, we're excited to be running our Half Term Grom week. Focused on developing competent skills in both kiteboarding and paddle boarding, we welcome youngsters between 12 and 16 to join us for 5 afternoons of actioned packed watersports fun.
The First bank holiday of May has been and gone, brining sunshine, wind and rain with it. Saturday and Sunday brought light breezes and gentle sessions, ideal for those with big kites who were keen to make the most of the quiet harbour. Then saving itself Monday, the wind delivered the full goods and was epic in the harbour all day long.
