Who are we? Well, you found this site, so I guess you already know a bit. But I’m happy to answer that question! We are E.S.W.V. WETH, what stands for Eindhovense Studenten Windsurfvereniging Windsurfing Eindhoven Technische Hogeschool. I’ve put that in Google Translate, and this is what happens: Eindhoven Student Windsurfing Association Windsurfing Eindhoven Technical University. I guess that’s clear. But what do we do? Well, windsurfing! And is that all? No, of course not. We’re also very good in bbqing, doing drinks, going on weekends, socializing, chilling, wakeboarding, winteractivities like snowboarding, iceskating, winterbbqing, flowboarding, floating and telling a lot of nonsense, as we say so ourselves. And a part of our association is really good in kitesurfing. And all that since 1982.
But to the point. Is it possible to wind- and/or kitesurf in Eindhoven? Yes, if there is enough wind. We’ve got a lot of waters nearby where we do introcourses and stuff. But for the real thing we set off to the sea or the bigger lakes. For example Brouwersdam, Grevelingen or Horst.
Our association is open for beginners, advanced and pro-surfers. We’ve got all sorts of materials, free for members to lend. For beginners we’ve got introcourses where you learn the basics. And as soon as there is wind, the mailinglist gets spammed with the question who’s joining for a ride to the wind and the water! Rides are taking care of within the enthusiast, and as member you can always take the trailer with you for all your gear.
Further, there are Borrels, (freely translated: drinks, but we refuse to call them that) every two weeks, and of course the always fun weekends, four or five times a year. In the winter we have, besides the Borrels, an activity every month, so you don’t have to be bored! And of course we have our ALV, (Google translate: general Assembly) so you can bring input and improve our association!
And last but not least, we don’t bite! So if you’re interested, you’re welcome to join us on a freely base Borrel, weekend or introcourse! Via contact you can send the board an email with all your questions, facts and figures, and spam.
