Elite Big Air Classic

JANUARY 13-14, 2018

Sunshine Skyway Bridge

Let’s get together again 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 is one you won’t want to miss!

Below we have broken down the event and the categories to better highlight the fact that EVERYONE can compete, as there is a category for all skill-sets and all ages. Plus, the more registered competitors there are, the great the prize money… tell your friends! ($20.00 per registration)


This event is focused on “Big Air” boosting. The competitors will be divided into five 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 and performances throughout each heat, will compete. There will be winners from each division (1st, 2nd, & 3rd place). 

Our Sponsors (More to come)

Liquid Force       Slingshot       F-One        Core     Ozone      Magnuson Hotel Clearwater Central


Juniors (age 21 and under)

Intermediate (age 22 to 44)

Masters (age 45 and up)

Women (all ages)

Pros (anyone with a brand sponsorship or riding under the pro category)

*Our main focus here is to bring the Tampa Bay Kiteboarding Community together for a day of healthy competition. Please be honest in the category you compete in, as to give fair opportunity to all. 





Prizes will be awarded to the TOP THREE Places of each division. 


$25.00 to compete

As this event will require a significant amount of wind, we will be holding a THREE WEEK CALL OUT. The first windy weekend (20+ knots), between the following weekends in January, will be the weekend of the event.

January 13-14

January 20-21

January 27-28

We will provide notice of event confirmation in the following increments: 

1 Week

72 Hours

48 Hours

24 Hours

Again, we need at least 20 knots to have successful boosting conditions. So, do your wind dance 😉

We look forward to seeing you all there and to having a great day of kiteboarding competition at the Skyway! Bring your friends!
