Our Mini Festivals are a celebration of powerful women. Beginners through to those who rip, these events are a chance to create your community, your strength or your journey within the sport. If you're coming alone, you will leave with friends and another reason to find your inner extreme. Check out the last one we ran here.

What to expect

These weekend events feel exactly like a Festival, but Mini. Our She Flies Speakers Tent hosts special guests, Q&A's, talks and workshops while brands and local sellers will be set up for you to browse or ask the experts on hand for advice.

Here are some examples of our previous activities:

KIT ADVICE // How do you know which Board to buy? Talks from industry experts.

FITNESS WORKSHOPS // Why it's important to think of Wakeboarding, when you're not Wakeboarding. Experts explain the must's and must not's of preparation and recovery (also available 1-2-1)

MINDSET WORKSHOPS // Our minds are our super powers but they can be a bit naughty too. Learn how to train yours with our mindset professionals

YOGA SESSIONS // Don't forget to stretch and give those achy arms some loving - perfect for beginners and experts alike

EXPOSE THE PROS // Welcoming some of the biggest names in UK Female Kitesurfing to perform for us on the water - this is not to miss!

RESIDENT DJ // We always bring our resident She Flies DJ to join us for some jamming while we talk sport.

MERCH // Selling the best of the She Flies Merch, at special event prices, our volunteers will be on hand to help at the Merch Stand!

At every event, we get to thank our sponsors for the incredible prizes they donate that we get to give away too!


Complete beginner?

Perfect. At our Mini Festivals, we offer 'System 2' Cable for complete beginners on a 15 minute 1-2-1 slot. Just let us know you want to take one when you book. Surrounding yourself with women excited for you to learn is the best way to start. You're going to love it.

Spring 2021, New Forest Water Park

The Venue

We work closely and in partnership with our venues. We choose them based on their reputation and support for women. Our aim is not just to give you a fantastic weekend, but to ensure you have somewhere to practise when the weekend is over.

New Forest Water Park is the venue for our next She Wakes Mini Festival in June 2021. The New Forest Water Park is a family run cable with a strong existing female community. Ben and Millie are in charge and have allowed us to hire the whole cable on both days.

Having run the event at the same venue for 2 years now, we love going back to the New Forest Water Park.


Our tickets cover access to the festival events such as Yoga, Talks, Workshops, DJ & Discounted Merchandise and support our growing community. Lessons and sport sessions can be purchased in addition.

Ticket information will become available here when we have the final plans confirmed for our next event.


At our Mini Festival weekends, we find a Wake House to book in on and stay with new friends for the weekend as well as recommended accommodation. Due to COVID-19, for the next event, we are unable to provide this and hope that you are able to cater for yourselves within government guidelines.

The New Forest Water Park has limited camping available, which you can book with them directly.

The Official Line Up

The full line up will be announced closer to the time. Keep refreshing!

Our Promise

She Flies makes a promise, if you are joining alone, you will leave with friends. We are proud of it, as it means every woman feels like someone at our events. In fact, we hire volunteers who's sole job is to ensure that we stick to our word.
