The 2009 KiteFest Alaska is set to Homer Spit

12 May 2009 | 9:23 am

This year our unofficial motto will be, ‘Bigger, better and actually organized’. This years event will build on the enormous success of last year with classes, clinics, food, demo gear, competitions, partying, and loads of kitesurfing! We are even hosting an hour long Friday night film fest in a local theater to get our stoke on for the weekend. This years event will feature lots of classes for those just starting out as well as intermediate and advanced classes for those already ripping. Be sure to register by sending us an email so we know to expect you!

Last years event was amazing, with more than 75 participants from all over the world! Kiters and those wanting to learn came out of the wood work and all left better kiters, stuffed with knowledge and totally exhausted.

Competitions:

The Great Kite Pump
Who can inflate a large (18m +) kite as quickly as possible to a certain pressure. Prizes.

The Drag
Competitors will body drag from the beach out to an anchored buoy, then back with only themselves and their kite. Prizes.

Spit Race
This will be a slightly more competitive race with competitors racing from the base of the spit to the end. A judge will be placed at Mariner Park and at the end of the spit. Judges will use lines of sight to determine who wins. Prizes.
