These boards pump up as rock solid as an epoxy solid SUP board but have added advantages of amazing durability, and can be packed away in a medium sized rucksack and fit in your boot for easy transport.

As usual we will also be having the now legendary Wind Warriors After Party with BBQ & some beers put on for the riders & distributors. Featuring an epic beachfront setting. It's a party not to be missed! The slacklines will be set up so get ya groove on and show us yer stuff!

Accommodation is available at the Foxton Beach Motor Camp, either tent sites or cabins. Mention you're there for Wind Warriors to receive a discount on your accommodation.

Also for those whose Mrs doesn't want to rough it too much , there is the Foxton Beach Motel with a number of rooms overlooking the estuary & riding spot.

Also Kowhai Court Apartments at Foxton Beach for families & couples.

I hope you all can make it to the demo weekend and look forward to seeing your smiling faces on the day.

P.S. Bring the wind with you please! We will sort everything else!
