St Annes Pier, Lancashire, UK

The long-awaited Trax Windsports Centre, planned to St Annes, will be delayed at least until the end of summer.

The future sports centre for kitesurfing, kitebuggying and mini-sand-yachting will not open on time because local authorities want to be absolutely sure that all the equipment's safety procedures were taken seriously.

The opening delay for the Trax Windsports Centre happens with a deadly accident fresh in memory. Eight years ago, Carole Cruz lost her life in a sand-yachting accident.

Now, qualified personnel are being trained and local leisure and tourism powers are working closely with the Trax Windsports Centre in order to get kitesurfers in action as soon as possible.

The push through, or punch through technique allows surfers to get past a small broken wave and reach the lineup without having to duck dive or turtle roll.
