After deciding I wasnt going my sister has been asked to take some people along - she has been doing a lot of promo in Brighton for them on bocks, so has been given a few tickets for people to do demos and workshops. Shes asked some of EPB to go and help her out - not sure whos going though - shes sorting it!

WORLD CHAMPION WINDSURFER NIK BAKER AND WHITE AIR FESTIVAL JOIN FORCES FOR THE KIDS
One of the biggest names in the Windsurfing world volunteered his time to teach budding windsurfers at Lagoon Watersports, Hove Lagoon at a one-off masterclass, ahead of next week's White Air Extreme Sports and Music Festival which starts on Friday 18th September.
The masterclass was aimed at 9-12 years olds to help them learn tips and techniques from the legendary World Champion whilst improving their skills on the water.
22 children from the OnBoard initiative were taught how to windsurf in a two-hour session, hosted by White Air participant and star Nik Baker, who will be performing at this year’s festival, and his brother Ant was there to lend a helping hand. Brighton trained Nik Baker, who is set to perform in front of the extreme sports world alumni at White Air Festival, is a former World Champion and coach to man of the moment Peter Andre. Nik has been winning windsurfing titles around the world since the early 1990s and he was one spot off the PWA World Title this year! He is idolised by windsurfers and is arguably Britain's most successful and best known windsurfer of all time.

The Essex Power Bockers did White Air two weeks ago!

5 of us from Essex (Becky, Elton, Little Dal, Adam, Rachel) were joined by 2 from Brighton (Chris, Neil) to spend 3 days on the Brighton seafront teaching stilts and doing demos on them.

We also joined the inline skaters for a high jump competition, with Elton winning with a flip at 1.65m.

Was a great weekend, with over 150 people taking part in our taster sessions, aged from 6 to about 50.

We got good coverage for the sport too:
BBC South Today (News-in the background of a live interview)
BBC South East Today (News-two short clips used in a montage of clips of sports taking place at the festival)
Front cover of the Argus (Local newspaper - ill scan it in and add a copy soon)
BBC Radio 5 Live - a prerecorded interview done whilst teaching one of the presenters to walk and jump on the stilts
BBC Radio 5 Live - a live interview about bocking, how much fun it is and how more people should try it
BBC Newspaper ariel - front cover photo

:)

Some photos from the weekend (Plus the newspapers)
