The festival and the NWF brand is designed around the intermediate participant irrespective of age and ability and for these reasons has a real vibrant community spirit.

We also have a separate youth aspect in both windsurfing & SUP with its friendly fun format with coaching and other aspects looking to promote our sports well into the future.

The Charities

We love bringing together windsurfing and sup communities from across the UK and further afield. The NWF brand has raised important funds for charities over the last 9 years and for our 10th Anniversary, we are supporting The Rowans Hospice, which is a local charity dedicated to improving the lives of people with life – limiting illnesses in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire.
