Paddle Round the Pier 2017

1st – 2nd July 2017

Brighton / Hove, United Kingdom

 

The UK’s south coast event ‘Paddle Round the Pier’ will be hosting a big air competition in association with Kitesurfkings and WOO Sports. This is a kite event for the masses, come and have some fun!

 

When and where

The event will kick off at 14.30 on the 1st July 2017, this doesn’t mean that competitors can arrive at 14.30 but are ready to kite at 14.30. There’s a strict cut off point at 16.00/16.30. If unlucky with wind on the 1st, but it’s looking good for the 2nd then the event will run on this date with riders allocated time slots.

Be sure to swing by the Kitesurfkings stand (pitch number 32 to the right/east upon entering Entrance Gate 4) anytime to check on info, or visit the Kitesurfkings Facebook page for an update.

 

Who’s the event for… can I enter?

The event’s aimed at all solid riders who’re riding upwind and jumping… If you’re a pro or sponsored rider then come and have a kite, but the main prize for highest jump will not be on the cards. This is a fun opportunity to have a kite at a great event with like minded riders, all egging each other on to jump higher and pull off their best tricks, not to mention bag some sick prizes! Highest jump will be measured using a WOO device and on a leader board that’s generated for this event BUT it’s not just about the highest jump! Prizes are also up for grabs for ‘best wipe out’, ‘most effort’ and ‘most style’.

 

How to register

You can register by emailing: luke@kitesurfkings.com or via the Kitesurfkings Facebook page and login to the event. If it’s the day of the event and you’re only just checking this out now, where have you been? Pop over to the Kitesurfkings event stand to see what be arranged.

 

How much does it cost to enter?

Both the Jump Comp and Paddle entrance are free, however please do consider the charities and dig deep in your pockets if you can. There are collection buckets on each entrance.

 

Safety/ Rules

They’ll be beach and water support, but everyone should be fully independent, be able to self rescue effectively and have their own insurance. Everyone needs to launch and land from the designated spot. Regular rules on the water. No jumping over other riders, unless with prior agreement but high fives are encouraged. You can ride for as little or as long as you wish between 14.30 and 16.30. If you’ve got one of the Kitesurfkings crew pointing at you continuously then come back to the beach, this could be for bad behavior but it’s more likely that a WOO needs switching over if you’ve borrowed one, as there are a limited number of devices.

 

Prizes

Top prize is a brand new 2017 CrazyFly Raptor complete! A dreamy kite board that any intermediate to advanced rider would be blessed to own. Also up for grabs is a 2017 NP 3D harness, and loads of other prizes to give away from CrazyFly, Cabrinha and Kitesurfkings.
