Here are some of the review from last year. To read more please visit our Facebook page
“This is the 11th NWF and I’ve been to 9 of them, we didn’t really know what to expect with a wholesale venue change but the event was fantastic. Whether you are a pro level SUP or windsurf person there is truly a lot for everyone and in a very friendly , fun and relaxed environment too. I’ll be going next year and I’ll be taking my family.”
“If you’ve never been, then go. If you’ve been before, tell your friends to go. It’s that good an event that it’s going to take some serious reasoning not to make it ….. and the new venue sure ticks a lot of boxes for making it an accessible family friendly arena for watersports whatever the conditions Mother Nature delivers.”
“What a fantastic weekend! Well done to everybody involved. The meticulous planning that went into everything really paid off. From start to finish there was an awesome atmosphere and the beautiful setting on the North shore of Rutland Water only added to the magic. The bands were also superb. Special mention for the excellent bar staff as well who kept everybody lubricated and entertained all weekend. Also a big shout out for the wicked pizza stand, I managed 4 somehow in 2 evenings! Looking forward to NWF 2018!”
“Loved it last year ….loved it even more this ! I think it’s safe to say the SUP North contingent will be even bigger in 2018. Big thanks to Mark Price and the Central SUP crew for running the SUP comps and I look forward to seeing the break down of the club results ( I think we won the fancy dress so that’s 10 points each and the first 11 places ..the average is good!). Allan thanks for putting on such a fabulous event. June 8th 2018 feels too long before we do it all again.”
“Fantastic weekend, great new venue.
Loads of different activities to try or compete in (even if you’ve never competed before). Something for everyone from newbies to more experienced competitors plus partying with great bands. Great opportunity to learn from experts, meet members of different clubs, and check out the different brands. If this all sounds too exhausting there was also plenty of opportunities to just sit down, enjoy the weather and watch the activities. The firework display was a lovely addition to the weekend.
Team camping was a fantastic upgrade from Hayling but the event was also well set up for day visitors. Looking forward to 2018 NWF.”
“My first ever experience of racing and what an experience – ill definitely be coming back for more master blasters! Thanks”
“the kids had an awesome time at the festival. Camping was fun and all the activities for the kids were great. you’re not wrong when you say its a family festival”
“thanks to the NWF team for putting on another fab festival for the windsurfing and sup community!”
