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!

ELITE BIG AIR CLASSIC – 2nd Annual
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 to 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).
