Take your First Steps.
21/22/23 September 2012. Barassie, Troon.
If you (or someone you know) wants to experience the exciting world of wind and water sports then the Scottish Windfest offers the perfect opportunity to try not just one, but FOUR different adrenaline-packed activities!
We’ve teamed up with some of Scotland’s leading training providers, to bring you a truly unrivalled programme of short taster sessions running throughout the windfest! Each session lasts between 30 and 60 minutes (depending on the sport) and includes all kit and equipment necessary as well as expert instruction from qualified instructors.
- Kite flying (a precursor to kite surfing and other kite sports)
- Stand-up Paddling
Sessions will cost between £5-£7 per person, with the fee payable direct to the providers. Our friends from RYA Scotland will be providing a central booking area to enable you to check availability and plan your day of exciting wind and water sports!
