The 2017 Kitesurfing Armada Festival

The kitesurfing Industry and Beyond is set for this year’s Armada 



The Kitesurfing Armada Festival returns to Hayling Island on 9-11 June 2017 for a fantastic weekend of kitesurfing, live music, entertainment and family activities to be enjoyed by thousands of kitesurfers and festival goers.  New festival features this year include staging the British Kitesurfing Champs, a bigger day time acoustic music set up, a new food court with tasty new food options and more brands, talks, bands, parties, campers and visitors than ever before – you have to be there!

The festival is now the biggest kitesurfing event in the UK and was once again voted ‘Best UK Event’ at the last UK Kitesurfing Industry Awards.  You can see above all the brands who’ll be populating the massive brands tent and there’s also some especially positive news for the festival with the recent announcement that Fat Face will be the headline sponsor for this year’s event!

Dan Charlish, the event organiser, and the rest of his team are also now getting close to launching their 8 location Youth Tour, running throughout April and May. Final locations, kite and SUP schools and plans are all coming together, with an announcement coming in the couple of weeks. If any brands want to get involved – please drop them a line! This Tour is funded by the Armada Trust with funds raised at Kitesurfing and SUP Armadas (i.e by you guys) enabling over 1,000 kids who have never been on a SUP or flown a power kite to get involved for free! Keep your eyes peeled for more on that one..



If you’re thinking about coming down to the event this year then you can find more details below!
