A Frosty Winters Kitesurf in Essex

Kitesurfing in Essex is always a pleasure during the summer however as winter rolls on we often sit back with a cup of tea, pop the slippers on and flick some channels. Kitesurfing Instructor Paul Hepworth and Myself, Dave braved the frosty waters yesterday, We had a combination of strategies to counter the cold weather, Paul Dived in with a Pyscho 3 wetsuit and a dry suit over the top, I chose some nice warm Flexifoil Clothing with the always epic ION Fuse Drysuit.

It took a while to pluck up the courage as we stepped out of the vans into the icey blast of a northerly wind firing down the English Channel straight through our jeans and making your knees rattle but we only had two choices, be epic or go home and be lame.


After a late 4:15 start we were racing to get out before the sun set, but we were rewarded with a fantasticly boosty session and sets as nice as they come at frinton with water being pulled flat inbetween, the perfect combination for some big floaty airs, Paul was out on the 11m Force, and I was on the 13.5m Force.

After the initial shock of the chill we blasted out to sea trying to avoid the bracing splash with subsequent wind chill hitting us in the face and found on our return we were storming up wind which left us with lots of room to boost down wind. We both got a little too excited and carried away leading to some big crashed and some headache inducing flush throughs, ah, I do exagerate, once our cores were up to temperature even dipping under the water wasnt too bad.

For all those water lovers out there, Kitesurfing is a beautiful sport but it is a waiting game.

Stand Up Paddle boarding is a peaceful and energetic at the same time, a lot less extreme than power kiting and kitesurfing, it enables you to explore water ways with a very different perspective to your usual experiences.Seal barking at Graham SUP'ing

Virgin Kitesurfing Armada by PUSH Kiting

At the start of the year we were asked to get involved with a crazy idea from Lewis Crathern, to get the largest ever group of kitesurfers together to smash the current world record. It didnt take us long to accept, we were happily supporting the event as its aim as the Big Charity Downwinder suggests would be raising money, and for two great charities the RNLI and Snow Camp, Obviously one of which is quite prominent with a lot of kitesurfers, I'm sure sadly that most of us in the kitesurfing community know someone who has needed their support at some stage, and we are always very glad when they are there!

As the event grew Flexifoil got onboard as a sponsor which was a great boost, then Virgin later on took over as the main sponsor and rebranded it the "Virgin Kitesurfing Armada", Its fantastic to have support from such high places and no doubt that the word will get out much more because of all the extra major sponsors that came onboard. We must say first and foremost thanks to everyone that played a part in such an amazing event whether you were in the office, on the beach as a vital steward ensuring our safety, playing a support role or kiting with us it was a mamoth effort without so many people giving up their time we would not have had such a successful day.
