This year we are pleased to be offering a number of Clinics during the festival which will be run by industry specialists. Details of each session and those behind them are below.
To take part in any of the clinics, you will need an NWF ticket (either Day or Full Experience). All SUP clinics will be run in the SUP Beach area and all you need to do is turn up at the given time – no prior registration is required.
Timings can be found on the detailed schedule here <TBC>

Juniors Clinic – Saturday
Do you have a child under 16 who is interested in SUP? Well why not encourage them to attend this Junior Clinic run by the legendary Sam Ross!
It is the perfect chance for juniors to improve their skills learning from one of the best, before taking part in junior racing on the Sunday.
Age Range: 5yrs to 16yrs. Junior one design boards will be provided if you do not own your own.
Paddle Skills Clinic – Saturday
Want to improve your paddle skills? Then this clinic will take you through everything from set up, catch, power, exit and recovery. It is a great opportunity to get some extra skills before the SUP races.
We will also be running a second clinic after the Distance race to see how people did, what issues they may have had and to go through paddle technique that will help in future events. It will give you a chance to improve your skills again before taking part in the Technical Race on the Sunday.
Depending on numbers, the group maybe split groups to focus on different areas.

Ladies SUP Clinic – Saturday and Sunday
Aimed specifically at ladies, this clinic will be run by <TBC>.
There will be two clinics during NWF, with one before the main race and one the next day so plenty of time to practice what you learn with the opportunity to feedback.
Buoy Turn Clinic – Saturday
Do you want to be able to turn quicker round buoys or be able to do step back turns like the pros? Then this is the clinic for you! Learn new skills before taking part in the NWF Technical race on the Sunday.
