Virgin Kitesurfing Armada Festival 2017

Period: Jun 9 - Jun 11, 2017
Location: Hayling Island, United Kingdom

The Virgin Kitesurfing Armada Festival takes place on Hayling Island on 9-11 June 2017. The festival opens at 11am on Friday and features all the best kitesurfing brands exhibiting the latest gear, talks from pro-kiters and industry experts, live music and DJ’s, a bar area, jumbo screen and of course lots of kitesurfing! Everybody is welcome, entrance is free! Come down and get involved.

There will be loads of kitesurfing activities going on, alongside recreational kiting in the bay we are planning big air comps, foiling clinics, beginner taster sessions, a race round the sandbar and of course the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt for the ‘Largest Parade of Kitesurfers’ over a one mile course (currently held by the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada Hayling Island a with 423 kiters)!

A quick word from the organizers: “We love bringing together kitesurfing communities from across the UK and further afield, kiting together, breaking World Record’s & putting on a fantastic kitesurfing festival. But alongside this, the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada raises funds for a range of youth & rescue charities via The Armada Trust. We have raised over £160,000 for good causes, and we want to do even more this year!”
