Legend of the Bay set to sail on into Newquay this weekend

April 17th, 2015

If you love your watersports, like many of the local residents of Cornwall do, and you’re looking for something exciting to do while staying in our family friendly cottages, Cornwall, Watergate has something you won’t want to miss! The British Kitesurfing Association (BKSA) and the British Stand Up Paddlesurf Assocation (BSUPA) are joining forces to bring Legends of the Bay to Watergate.


Legend of the Bay boasts the start of the events calendar and when you’re there you can expect to see some of the versatile and energetic wave-riding in a unique competition combining stand up paddle surfing and kitesurfing.

The competition is a collaboration between the British Stand Up Paddle Association (BSUPA) and the British Kitesports Association (BKSA) which returns to the bay for the second time following its debut in 2013.

Competitors will be required to compete in both kitesurfing and stand up paddle boarding. However, if the conditions are not suitable for one discipline then competitors will be able to compete in the other, ensuring that spectators will find themselves viewing quite the extreme spectacle, and not be disappointed!
