IT’S ON!!

THIS SUNDAY

AND BEACH CLEANUP

 

The event, and moment, we’ve all been waiting for. GREEN LIGHT for our favorite kiteboarding competition. RAIN OR SHINE, this SUNDAY (04/15/18) AT EAST BEACH, FORT DESOTO. 

We are aiming for a 10:30 am start-time, so if you’re competing, BE THERE EARLY!!! Get your gear rigged and your body stretched because once 10:30 am strikes, the first heat is going out.

We are also hosting a BEACH CLEANUP during the event. Inbetween the middle of the event, we will take a thirty-minute break to spread out across the beach and pick up all the debris and trash along East Beach. So, if you plan on being at the event, plan on taking some time to give back to the beautiful beaches that allow us to kite in such a rad spot. We will provide trash bags and gloves, but if you wish to bring any shovels or trash-grabbing tools, feel free to do so. 

Please be prepared to be at the event location for several hours – aka, bring hydration, food, seating, protection from rain (which we will hopefully not be seeing), and whatever else you’d like to occupy your time with. 

Looking forward to seeing you all there. Remember to get registered, because it’s about to go down!
