Welcome to Wind, Wheels & Waves.
We are a power kite traction club dedicated to promoting this fast growing sport in Weston Super Mare. We are an affiliated British Kitesports Association (BKSA) club and can be found listed as "North Somerset - Wind, Wheels and Waves".
Due to the Bristol Channel having the second largest tidal range (rise and fall) in the world, Weston offers a unique place to kite buggy, landboard,powerkite and kitesurf depending on the winds, tide and your mood. Wind Wheels & Waves offers you the opportunity to do all four in one club with one public liability insurance. Since we are also part of the BKSA you also have the opportunity to go further afield – see the BKSA website for more detail. Our members are a friendly diverse bunch, young and old, from all walks of life. Our only aim is to have fun. Please feel free to come and join us.
North Somerset Council allows us to have a dedicated Windzone (for land-based kitesports which are not allowed outside of the windzone) but does require that all users of this are members of either Wind, Wheels & Waves, SWATK or the British Land Speedsail Association. This is to ensure that users have third party insurance.
Waterbased kitesports are welcome at the beach outside this zone but must 'give way' to other beach users and also be able to show proof of insurance (eg a BKSA membership card).
Our continued use of the Windzone and beach is dependent on us maintaining good relations and promoting safe kiting. If you are asked to present proof of membership and/or insurance then please politely comply– remember they're just doing their jobs.
We look forward to meeting you The Wind, Wheels & Waves team.
Don't forget to join us on our North Somerset - Wind Wheels and Waves FACEBOOK group.
