March 4-5, 2017
Let’s get together and have some fun on the water, while showcasing our passion for the sport of kiteboarding and our abilities to catch some stellar air! Whether you’re a competitor or a spectator, this event will be one you won’t want to miss!
Below we have broken down the two events and the categories to better highlight the fact that EVERYONE can compete, as there is a category for all skill-sets and all ages.
This event is focused on “Big Air” boosting. The competitors will be divided into three divisions (listed below) and will be separated into heats. After each heat, the top riders will progress into the next bracket level until the final round where the best riders, who have had the best boost throughout each heat, will compete. There will be a winner from each division.
