Stithians Lake Autumn Windsurf Bash

Following the success of the Summer Windsurf Rally next month will see the return of the annual Stithians Lake Autumn Windsurf Bash taking place on October 24 and 25. Windsurfing conditions in October can be fantastic and Stithians Lake welcomes windsurfers old and new to take part in a weekend of windsurf coaching, clinics and freeriding.

On the Saturday there will be coaching for beginners, intermediate and advanced windsurfers, covering everything from sailing skills, beachstarts and waterstarts to harnessing, footstraps and carving skills clinics. Sunday is ‘freeriding day’ with coaches on hand to give hints and tips.

Christian Body, windsurfing instructor at Stithians Lake, said “We had a great Summer Windsurf Rally this year and I can’t wait to see everyone back at the Lake for the Autumn Bash. I really love windsurfing in October as it’s still relatively warm and there’s a good chance of wind”.

The Autumn Bash is going to be a great chance for people, from complete beginners to advanced, to learn new skills and sharpen existing ones. This year Stithians has built up a really good core of avid windsurfers of varying ages and levels.

Windsurfing allows you to enjoy the variety of conditions we have in Cornwall, improve fitness and confidence and it’s a great stress buster.

The event costs just £50 for the Saturday or £85 for the weekend which includes kit (if you don't have your own) and video coaching. If you sign up for the weekend you get a meal included on the Saturday evening provided by Caffé Nova. Free camping is also available on the Saturday night.

The centre will be open every day except Tuesdays and Wednesday for tuition sessions, hire and launch. Call Stithians Outdoor and Active Centre to book on 01209 860301 or email
