Welcome to Bristol Nomads Windsurfing Club

The place to be for windsurfing in the SW


12/9/2020: You can now send us details of new locations not already in our database using a new form & scripts. I know our database is very incomplete, so please help to fill in the gaps.

10/9/2020: Comments/feedback form is working again

30/8/2020: We've reached 1 million hits on the site today! I've also finished all the work on the location update form, making life much easier for you to fill out and send. So feel free to send us those updates. PLEASE! Next on my list is a form for submitting new locations. Wow!

22/8/2020: After many further iterations of changes to underlying code, the location reports & trip reports are all working now, as are the means of sending us updates for locations - though this needs more work.

The weather report links for WindGuru are now working again - thanks to WindGuru for providing this data.

8/8/2020: All location pages updated to newer technology & all of the update links on each of those pages should now be working. Note that the info on those pages is still mostly very old and needs your help with updates.

4/8/2020: I'm most of the way through updating every single location report to fix the broken "update details" links and change the technology driving some of the information. Should be done in the next few days.

15/7/2020: Just discovered that none of the weather forecast pages from WindGuru are working anymore. Something else to fix.

14/7/2020: The website search is now working again. Atomz - our old provider of this - got bought by Adobe, who promptly shut down Atomz. We're now gratefully using DuckDuckGo.

10/7/2020: After many years of neglect, I've started to get around to updating some of the things that had stopped working due to a number of changes in the PHP scripting language and database interfaces. The Wind Strength Converter is now working again. Whoopee! Watch this space for more to follow, but don't hold your breath.

Bristol Nomads Windsurfing Club is a nomadic club based loosely around the Bristol (UK) area, where our emphasis has been on recreational windsurfing for over 20 years. Our stamping ground is pretty much around the South West of England and West Wales, with occasional overseas trips thrown-in for good measure. we welcome all ages & abilities. When the wind doesn't blow, or if it's too cold to sail, you'll find a number of us resorting to our alternative passion of flinging mountain bikes around muddy hillsides.

Take a good look around our site, our locations & our forums & feel free to join in.

This site is lovingly maintained - especially during Covid-19 lockdowns - by Martin Farrimond.

Should you happen to come across any broken links or anything else on the site that doesn't work, or have any suggestions, comments, feedback, etc, please contact us here.
