CARDIFF UNIVERSITY WINDSURF CLUB
Any level or experience - we have equipment and events to suit you ALL! 🌊🌊
Whether you have never seen a windsurf board - or if you've been sailing the tasty winds of Vass since before you could walk - CUWC has something to offer you! We relaunched the club in 2022, and are now one of the fastest growing windsurf clubs in Wales. We have kit for all members - from total beginners to advanced windsurfers and freestylers - and our committee is full of trained instructors, lifeguards and powerboat drivers to assist you in becoming a pro windsurfer!
We are a super sociable club and we love a night out - whether that is at the beach, doing karaoke or holding house parties before SU clubbing nights! We also love getting suited and booted at our annual winter and summer balls! Being part of CUWC is also a fantastic way of meeting people from other universities - we regularly travel around the country for SWA weekends of partying and competing with other windsurf clubs!
Interested? Get involved by joining our WhatsApp Group, come and chat to us at the AU freshers fayre in the SU or come gatecrash the next social/event! If you have any questions, pop a message to our instagram page and one of our committee will get back to you!
We will also be running regular give it a go (GIAG) sessions this term. Keep an eye on our socials for dates and details!
We're really looking forward to this season and even more excited to see your beautiful faces so come and get involved!!❤️🌊

STUDENT WINDSURFING ASSOCIATION (SWA) EVENTS
The best bit of being part of CUWC is the opportunity to attend weekend-long trips to other universities! This includes Aussie Kiss at the start of the year, followed by several Core and Wave events hosted by Universities across the UK. Events run over the weekend - we head down on the Friday night, grab some food and meet up with other universities for an evening in their local city for a night on the town! This is a great opportunity to get to know fellow university's windsurfers before seeing them again for windsurfing the next morning!
As your hangover passes, you will spend Saturday at the lake or beach for a full day of windsurfing (or relaxing by the waters edge). There will be FREE tuition for all levels, as well as freestyle and racing for ALL abilities (yes beginners, you get to show off your new-found skills). Get your best fancy dress lined up, as on Saturday evening we will be let loose on the city for a great party with some ridiculous fancy dress themes and some hilarious costumes!
Again, Sunday will be spent on the water for more windsurfing fun and competitions, before making our way back to Cardiff for a well earned rest. Weekends like this not only improve your windsurfing skills, but they can earn you loads of jammy prizes (hopefully), create some great stories for the grandkids, and make you lifelong friends not only within our club, but with students from all over the UK (OK, we'll stop being soppy now).
Just to put the icing on the cake, your SWA event ticket includes the windsurfing, breakfast, lunch and dinner for the whole weekend and the nights out! We also organise transportation to and from the event, and bring kit for you to use too! It's all inclusive really!
