There is only a MONTH to go to the watersports event of the year! The NWF will take place on 2-4th June 2017 at Rutland Water.

Online entry is open – and there is even a price reduction on last year, since the infrastructure is already in place at the amazing new venue, Rutland Water.

A weekend at Glastonbury will cost you £243 this year. The NWF is just £70 for a full weekend of non-stop entertainment and watery fun – and includes parking and launch fees, which are normally paid!

If all you want to do is party, tickets are just £25 for both nights, with live bands, spectacular floodlit freestyle displays and an aerial firework display from a glider team who performed for the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Booking tickets is essential. Don’t miss out on the best opportunity to get together with your mates, spend time with your family and join others who share your passion! Get your tickets NOW on www.nationalwatersportsfestival.com

There’s only one NWF – and it’s the only multi-disciplinary watersports festival that there is, incorporating both windsurfing and SUP.

That means that any way the wind blows, you can still take part!

If the wind is up – enter the races on your windsurfer. If the wind is light, why not earn your points on a SUP?

If you haven’t tried ‘THE OTHER ONE’ – there are free taster sessions in both windsurfing and SUP and lots of fun SUP activities where you can earn points for your team, such as – SUP Polo, SUP Tug o’ War – or relax with SUP Yoga.

At the NWF, you can join in whatever the wind does!



Sam Ross, RYA National and Zone Squad Coach, will be leading a team of coaches who will run a skills clinic for under 16s, followed by a Super Cross Race to put the new found skills into action!

There are 18 places available for each clinic, however young windsurfers can join in the racing even if they have not taken part in the clinic.

Entry is open to all windsurfers aged under 16 who have completed RYA 1 Windsurfing or equivalent. Windsurfers will need to provide their own kit and need to arrive rigged and ready for the start of their Clinic.



Designed to recognise outstanding individuals and groups in the sports we love, the prestigious NWF Awards are calling for nominations in both SUP and Windsurfing.

NWF is delighted to announce that Whale of a Time Clothing will be part of the Trade Show at the NWF – and will be running a competition to win some FABULOUS items from their summer collection!

Whale of a Time is an exciting, new British label, which bridges the gap between country and fashion, with strong ties to surf style

Headed up by young designer Ellie Wales, the brand was born back in 2015 and is based on the north coast of Norfolk. The focus is on easy-to-wear designs, which feel and look as great in the country, city or bar as they do on the beach.

Passionate about organic fabrics & British design, Whale of Time Clothing continue to add further retro-inspired designs to their ever expanding collection of sweatshirts, T-shirts, headwear and accessories.

With a growing band of celebrity fans (Including Binky Felstead, Tiff Watson & Joshua Patteron from Made In Chelsea) & style savvy customers joining the retro revolution, come and meet Whale Of A Time Clothing at the NWF as we continue on our mission to deliver easy to wear pieces, which look as good as they feel to wear.



dryrobe®, the waterproof, windproof outdoor change robe will be part of the NWF Trade Show. dryrobe® was designed by Gideon Bright, a North Devon-based surfer with over 30 years’ experience in the water.

“The towel change robe was an established idea but it just didn’t work for me. If it was raining or if I used it when it was cold or windy, it seemed to make me colder.” Says Gideon. “It took one cold winters’ day, in a car park at Croyde, freezing in the rain wearing a soggy towel robe for me to think, ‘right I’m going to make something better!’”

“I wore my first dryrobe® in 2010. I knew straight away that it was good – two ladies asked where they could buy one.”

The dryrobe® has received high praise since its launch and has become a very familiar around car parks in the UK’s best surf spots – and on the backs of some of the best athletes from all over the world. Virtually all outdoor sports have embraced the benefits; of staying warm while changing after racing, or just hanging about outdoors.

You might have spotted them on TV being worn by some very big names in Triathlon. (We can’t talk about that due to sponsorship issues…)

You can even pimp your dryrobe® with your team or club logo – or just have some fun making it unique with nylon-suited heat applied vinyl!

Come and see us at the NWF on 2-4th June.
