Kitestock, in it’s 9th year is an event that aims to get riders from all our Great Lake spots together for a bash to kick off the summer kiteboarding season.
No need to bring your winter suits as by mid May the water is getting into the 70’s and we are in shortie’s or less.
Even in the event of no wind during the weekend we have a full schedule of events to make the
drive worth it. The crew from Erieau Wakeboarding and Fresh Wakes will be present with their boats and winches. SUP’s will be available for demo from Rogue Wave and Surftech. The Saturday night party from 7 pm – 2 am Saturday night will feature the bands Ruth’s Hat and Truckstop Super Friends, a $15 all you can eat barbeque buffet and the always popular gear raffle with MC Brent Ford. Crash Saturday night right at the party site for $25 a tent.
Wind Events – expression session, 5 km mass downwinder/boardercross through planet of the swans if there is a solid wind forecast, demos from Ocean Rodeo, Caution, Flysurfer, Nobile, North, Epic, Jimmy Lewis and Best.
Gear Raffle items for this year – Dakine harness, hats and t-shirts, Jellyfish wakeskate, Jimmy Lewis 138 Park, Spleene Flydoor, Ocean Rodeo Drysuit, weeks accomodations at Windy Addiction Brazil Resort, Caution Surfboard, Nash Jeweler’s Necklace, HQ trainer kite, SBC Kiteboard swag, and a few we want to keep a secret.
