Pre-work SUP sessions Email Print

 

Come and join us before you have to go to the office.

Dawn patrol is one of our most fav. things here at Liquid Motion. Up before the crack of dawn, jump into the warmest/dry wetsuit you can find, fly down to the beach to find the most beautiful sunrise, just popping over the horizon. Paddle out on mirror flat water with some friends, life cannot get much better than that!

This morning Kristian was up at 6am on the water by 7am. What a beautiful start to the day, and it was warm too. If you would like to join us we will be running early morning sessions on clear/clam mornings from now, until Easter, when the evening sessions kick in.

Watch our Facebook page for dates to be published (due to the nature of British weather, we will organise the morning paddles the day before and announce the session on Facebook).

Plymouth University Windriders Join the Fun! Email Print

 

"Plymouth Windriders - exciting new partnerships!

Your committee have just been to Exeter to make new partnerships with an amazing centre, with fantastic staff. In a nutshell, Liquid Motion Watersports have an awesome shop, with prices that I have never seen before (Loli had to confiscate my plastic to stop me from buying everything in the store). The same company also just got the keys to a converted farm which over the next two years will see a climbing wall built, café installed, and a fair few windrider events and parties. With a large number of bedrooms and communal dining areas, big outdoor spaces for camping at larger events, and such friendly staff, it is surprising that any of us came back to Plymouth at all. There are two new main locations for kitesurfing and windsurfing, a shallow water "duck pond" where you can stand up to your waist in beautiful blue sea water and train in ideal conditions, or round the coast there is a white sand beach owned by the chap in charge where we can have beach parties, tents, and competitions. At the moment a weekend package of windsurfing or kitesurfing tuition, paddleboarding and surfing, accomodation and transport is looking like it will be a lot of fun. We are incredibly excited about this new partnership and are anticipating a club launch trip near to Easter, look out for details!!! Much love, James - Plymouth Windriders"

 


Preparation for the Season 2015 Email Print

Getting Ready for our Easter opening 2015

We busy cleaning and painting the centre getting ready for the new season.

The estuary centre has been brilliant this year with lots of great teaching days in all sports.  Next season we are

expanding the changing area into the old office and moving the office to our new campsite. The new centre will be closer to Orcombe point and Sandy bay. That means for the larger groups that come to the estuary we will have more changing facilities and just as much wonderful equipment to play on.

The beach club at Orcombe point will have a changing tent as well as the sports tents. Though we expect to move people around with our new Mini bus from the new centre, it is where people can meet for courses and we have dedicated class rooms for those essential theory chats. It will make parking much easier for our students and improvers.

Sandy Bay will operate from the container and the equipment will be waiting on the beach under another sport tent. One of the power boats will be stationed there and will move between Sandy bay and Orcombe point.

The new campsite will be offering activity weekend and week breaks and we will keep everyone posted about the developments. The site will be open from Mid January as we have residential accommodation in place.

So all you Kitesurfers, windsurfers, Paddle boarders, Kayakers, climbers, walkers, adventurers and explorers call us on 01395 276626 or email us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to find out more. 

looking forward to a great 2015 season the Exmouth watersports Team

 


Windsurf racing at the Duck pond - come join us Email Print

Exmouth Windsurfing Race Series - Race Report, 26 April 2014

 

A slate grey Victorian sky greeted the competitors for the first Exe Estuary based event and with south westerly winds gusting in excess of 20mph a reaching biased course was set.

 

Race one was dominated by Fairgrieve; taking a high line to the first mark he opened a noticeable lead during the second leg with Morgan, Dummett and Russell in efficient pursuit. Morgan’s board speed closed the gap on the leader but the one lap warm up race offered few overtaking opportunities and Fairgrieve crossed the finish line unchallenged.

 

Race two saw Morgan grab an electric start reaching the first mark with room to spare. Only a mistimed gybe allowed both Fairgrieve and Dummett to slip through. Composure restablished, Morgan ripped up the second leg and closed on the new leader Fairgrieve. Lap two saw the final leg in contention but daggerboard failure on the pursuers Starboard Phantom handed Fairgrieve his second win of the day.

 

Overall Results: 1st - Toby Fairgrieve (Mistral/Tushingham) 2nd - John Morgan (Starboard/Ezzy)  3rd - Adam Dummett (Starboard/Ezzy) 4th - Eva Russell (Mistral /Tushingham)

 

We are all looking forward to the next opportunity to race, see you there.

Exeter University Kite Boarders strike gold Email Print

Exeter bring home yet another Gold in kitesurfing

Last week Exeter Windriders brought home Gold from the student kitesurfing freestyle nationals at Westward-ho! beach North Devon for the second year in a row. Securing their position as the top UK University Kitesurf club.

The student Kitesurfing Nationals is one of the biggest freestyle competitions in the UK at any level in terms of participation and prizes.

Run by the Student Kitesurfing Association the National competition consists of a number of heats and finals. The riders are all divided into catagories based on their ability and then have a fixed time to perform freestyle tricks, from technical skateboard style tricks to big jumps up to 50 feet in the air.

First up was the intermediates, from the 3 strongly contended heats only 6 riders made it through to the finals, 4 of which were from Exeter. After an epic 10 minute final with winds up to 30knts, the 6 finalists threw down their biggest moves. In the end Exeter cleared up the medals with Joash Clarkson taking bronze, Ned Aufenast in silver and the one and only Ross Brown getting gold.

                 After a short break it was time for the advanced riders, Exeter’s Oliver Rubenstein and Sam Evans put on and amazing performance and both narrowly missed out on the podium.  

Finlay it was the most anticipated category, the Pros. As the crowds lined the waterline the winds picked up and the 4 professional kitesurfers headed out into the swell, among them flexifoil rider and university of Exeter student Liam Proctor. This was an amazing display of skill and bravery with riders jumping in excess of 50ft above the water. Liam proctor came in first, this was without doubt due to him pulling off a world’s first, a “salmon to blind” an impressive and risky trick.  

Proctor, part of the SKA committee, was one of the judges for the other categories and stated that he “was delighted to be able to announce (Exeter’s) names during the prize giving,” and that there were “definitely some personal best performances” even for the “Exeter competitors that did not make it onto the podium.” He re-assured that there was “no form of bias” as a judge since the competitors “pulled their best performances out of the bag”. Exeter also received special mentions for the biggest air of the day from Oliver Rubinstein in advanced, and the quickest crumpling kite for Thibault Bain in intermediate. As Aufenast mentioned the intermediate’s category “pulled off a wide range of well executed tricks,” this including the riders mentioned above as well as Billy Parr in intermediates and also Sam Evans in the advanced category. These accumulated achievements made Exeter the overall winners of the SKA 2013/14 trophy, making it the second consecutive year that Exeter took home the trophy home.

                  The weekend was a huge success for Exeter University Windriders, especially considering that many of the intermediate category from Exeter, including Browne who got gold, had never kite-surfed before coming to University. This made the competition greatly rewarding for the Windriders club, highlighting the enthusiasm and perseverance that is present in the society. Many were involved in the putting on of the event and Proctor mentioned thanks to “the SKA committee, the Exeter Windriders team, Powell and the AU, the fantastic student volunteers, and the various event sponsors”. The spirit of the competition was also well reflected in his statement that “I was riding with friends and Flexifoil team mates and just went out to have fun on the water during my heat.” The overall weekend saw the Exeter team come home triumphant and the Exeter support squad eager to get kiting and make Exeter proud again at next year’s round of nationals.

Looking forward to 2014 Email Print

2014 Season

We are delighted to announce that we have more school bookings for 2014 than ever before. The number of schools, language schools, groups, Hens and stags has grown enormously.

We thought 2013 was good but this coming year is going to be very busy. We are getting a lot of interest in Windsurfing, Kitesurfing and paddle boarding. The season will start during the  Easter holidays. Start your training program early a get ready for the autumn winds and waves, we are already taking pre bookings  for next season.

We will be operating the beach club at Orcombe point and the training centre will be open when ever the tide is good, especially for those wishing to improve their skills and get out on the water. The Sunday kids club and ECC courses will start early so that we can really improve everyones skills as quickly as possible.  We are considering an adult Windsurfing Saturday club at the duck pond for next season.  

The paddle club will run on Tuesday evenings at Orcombe or the duck pond - 6pm meet.A Saturday paddle club could also start perhaps at the beach club.

We are looking forward to a busy season and hope to see you all on the water

All the very best
