The NWF Kitesurfing demo will take on Hayling Island Kite Beach, between 8th-9th September 2012.

This will be an introduction what will become the National WaterSports Festival (NWF), as of 2013.

It is developed from what is currently the National Windsurfing Festival - the largest windsurfing event in the UK - which regular attracts over 450 sailors to a friendly format designed purely for free ride sailors.

The demo will be supported by the majority of the UK kite industry presenting their latest kits and supported by their pro riders for advice and coaching.

In 2013, there will be a bigger event consisting of windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, kitesurfing and kayaking under the single banner of National Watersports Festival.

The NWF Kite demo is free, however, for those who wish to use the camping facility and attend the 1980s themed NWF party it will be charged £30.

The Golden State boasts more than 1,000 miles of coastline, as well as some of the world's best surf breaks. And the Ventura County Coast is one of the original birthplaces of California surf culture.
