FLOW Girls Day

On Saturday it was the FLOW girls day to support and raise awarness for breast care and ovarian cancer research.  There was everything going on from wakeboarding to SUP’ping, yoga to windsurfing, Nalu Beads workshops to home made cakes… and to top it all off, the sun came out to play 🙂

I turned up to find a glassy lagoon which is home to he new System 2.0 down in Hove.  There were girls doing yoga on the grass facing the lagoon before they started their water activities so I had time to catch up and have a coffee with Team Nalu.  Not a bad way to start the day!

The more experienced wakeboarders were the first group to head out on the System 2.0.  It was really good to see some familiar faces from the ladies mornings at various lakes in this group!  They were rocking it and most of them were hitting the lush fun box which was their first obstical ever!  Its a great way of learning as the cable speed can be lowered to make it feel less daunting.  There were women who were completely new to wakeboarding also who did really well.  The System 2.0 is a fantastic learning tool (along with Rach the driver/instructor!) as it allows people to find their feet mush faster than a cable due to the speed control for the indevidual.

I was also in the Nalu tent as we were running a workshop all day.  The girls were loving it and we were always busy with so many different creations going on! 

It was a fansastic day, massive thanks to Amy from FLOW who organised the event!!

BEP Ladies Morning

At 9am on Sunday morning the ladies session at BEP was kicking off.  I turned up to find the 10 – 15 regulars but also about 15 – 20 new faces which was brilliant!  It was a hectic session but it was brilliant to see so many new girls wanting to get involved! 

Some were kneeboarding and then stepping it up to an easy-up wakeboard, most were getting up and to the first corner.  A few ladies had been wakeboarding a bit before and were mastering the cable and corner four.  Everyone was trying something new.

Props go out to Sue who was hitting the inside kicker on her toeside, Sharm, Louise and Kathryn who were all over the new rooftop and Ash who was trying raleys!  Of course it wouldn’t have been a ladies morning without some little goodies to give away.  Nadine won the Two Seasons vouchers because at last months chicks session at WakeMK, she took a front edge that left her with a black eye and a swollen lip/face, but this time around she was looking loads more confident on the water and riding around as if nothing had ever happened!  The Nalu Beads prize went to new comer, Connie!  She did really well and quietly just kept getting better and better throughout the two hour session.  Well done ladies!!

Massive well done and thank you to all the girls who have got involved with the Ladies Mornings at BEP over the summer, you guys make it so much fun to coach 🙂 

See you all soon!! xx
