What is SWATK all about??????


SWATK

The South and West Association of Traction Kiting (SWATK) was established in 2003 and formed by a small group of like-minded kiting enthusiasts to promote the sport of power kiting.
SWATK is now probably the largest and certainly the most active Power Kite Club in the UK.

The focus of the club is to ensure that you get the most out of your power kiting, the club achieves this in three main ways.

By organizing a calendar of club events - from Club fly-ins to SWATK entry-level race series; from days on the beach to weekends away. All events are open to all like-minded kiters.

By providing entry level and intermediate training free of charge to all, ensuring club members are safe and confident.

SWATK has an open page on Facebook to chat about experiences and gain valuable information, as well as talk rubbish.

www.facebook.com/groups/www.swatk.co.uk

I would also like to thank the PKF for allowing us to have a SWATK page all to ourselves.

See you on the beach
Woody

you are probably using an illegal character - such as an accent or symbol and it won't allow the text - check if you copy and pasted something or used something slightly different within your text - it can be a very small thing like using a symbol for Euro or pound sterling or french accents etc

And here I just thought you were just teasing us! ;)

I love the idea and happily join as the next member. When I see you next at the Salt Flats Kiting Spot you'll have to teach me the secret handshake.
