British wavesailing: plenty of great rides

The 2013 British Wavesailing Association (BWA) Championship will kick-off in Rhosneigr, Wales, on the 17th May.


The best wave windsurfers in the United Kingdom will test their skills in the extreme conditions of the Isle of Anglesey.

A few days later, the 2013 BWA Championship will move to Brandon Bay, in Ireland. The spot has always delivered wind and waves at this time of year, and with beaches facing most directions it is going to be mental.

The Wales and Ireland events are a truly unique experience, as competitors face three days of gruelling competition and partying on the testing Irish Sea of Rhosneigr, followed by a ferry trip and overnight drive to the Atlantic swell of Brandon Bay.

"I have travelled all over the world and can honestly say that the Wales and Ireland back to back event is one of the most challenging and fun events in windsurfing today. The constant wind, waves and flow of hospitality is never-ending !", says Ian Ross BWA judge.

This trip is not for the faint hearted and those who survive always have a great story to tell. The venues have a history of delivering classic conditions which will test the very best in British wavesailing.

New judge teams consist of PWA head judge Duncan Coombes, PWA judge Mark 'Sparky' Hosegood, Ian 'Chuckie' Ross, Lukasz Zadjowski and Jamie Knox.
