You may be aware that NCW now sells Tahe Techno windsurfing boards. You may also know that our sister company, Foilshop UK, deals with the fly above water side of things and stocks the Tahe Wind Foil 130L. Did you also know that Tahe Techno boards (formerly BIC Windsurfing) are performance orientated bits of equipment that are child friendly? Sure, mum and dad can hop on for spin but it’s nice to see a brand serving up gear your offspring can use properly.
With school summer holidays still in full swing it’s sometimes tricky finding activities to keep your wee ones entertained. Watersports mightn’t be for every child but if yours are keen then frolicking in the sea, at the lake, or in (safe) rivers is one way to haul them away from screen time.
Active kids are healthy kids. We don’t want to preach but it’s true. Plus, this’ll give parents the excuse to get outdoors as well. Everyone happy, smiley and ‘surfed out’ come end of play. The best way to get a good night’s sleep. Then more to follow…
You may have already seen some of these accompanying pics floating about on our social media channels but these past few weeks we’ve been generously loaned some Tahe Techno windsurf and windfoil demo kit to let a few young riders we know do their thing and capture the results. And what results – oh to have had a youth like this!
Just check out the following pics featuring Tom Pringuer windfoiling and taking his first forays into the world of winging on the same board. And then there’re the two younger ones making great strides into the world of windsurfing (seven years and four respectively).
As we say the usability and easy nature of this windsurf equipment makes it applicable to young kids learning and progressing across all windy disciplines.
Kids & Juniors 5mm Winter Wetsuits (backzip)
Kids Winter (cold water) Wetsuits. Need a kids winter wetsuit ? Do your kids get really cold ? try our warmer all 5mm full kids & toddlers winter wetsuit.
NCW kids winter suits are 5mm throughout the wetsuit where as many winter wetsuits are a mix of 5 and 3mm. As a result this means ours winter wetsuit is often found to be much warmer but they still have plenty of flex because they are made from super stretch neoprene throughout the wetsuit. The special blend of neoprene we use in our kids winter wetsuit is a very soft and comfortable super stretch which we find kids are really happy to wear and gives a warm snug fit.
Features included in our kids winter wetsuits :
• High quality “Comfort Super Stretch” neoprene for a snug and comfortable fit.
• All seams glued and blind stitched to prevent cold water seapage.
• Finemesh chest panel which helps to prevent wind chill.
• Duratex knee pads.
• ‘Hi Vis’ neoprene on shoulders so you can see your child in the water.
• Heavy duty back zip with velcro zip stop and interior zipper inset seam to reduce water flushing.
