The Westward Ho! BKSA Finals are brought to you by the BKSA and supported by RWE NPower Renewables. It represents the final showdown of the British Kitesurfing Association national tour. It is a weeklong event which gathers the best British kitesurfers for an incredible on water show.

This event will crown the BKSA British Champions in a number of disciplines, including kitesurfing and kitebuggy, all propelled by powerful kites. More than 100 elite riders are expected to compete for fame and cool prizes. The competition will feature top female and male kitesurfers who will compete in the water in freestyle, race and wave events, whilst on the beach competitors will take part in freestyle kite landboard and kite buggy competitions.

A quick word from BKSA Chairman, Richard Gowers: “This is the first time we have held a major kiting event at Westward Ho! and I can’t think of a better place for us to bring the tour to a close. The beach has plenty of open space and works in most wind directions.”

The Westward Ho! BKSA Finals take place between the 14th and 20th of October on a north Devon beach, at Westward Ho!, near Barnstaple. To find out more details about this event, please visit the BKSA website.
