BVI Kite Jam 2010

From March 1st - 5th the British Virgin Islands will play host to the 2010 BVI Kite Jam. KW hound Ash Phelps was on hand last month to get a sneak peak into the preparation for the event and was lucky enough to get a thrown on a plane to paradise. If seeing the kiting hot spots and taking in the jaw-dropping BVI scenery and hospitality wasn't enough, there was even time to schmooze with Britain's most famous entrepreneur and keen kiter - Sir Richard Branson. Sir Richard is also supporting the Kite Jam and has already made an impact helping them market the event (you know the pictures I'm talking about). With his help the event looks set to be a scorcher!
A stellar cast has already been put together for the Jam and the likes of Kristin Boese, Andre Phillip, Susi Mai, Tuva Jansen, Tom Court, Chris Burke, Gretta Kruesi and Madison Van Heurck will be throwing down alongside Sir Richard next year. What's more we've got solid photo representation in the form of John Bilderback heading over to get the shots that matter. We wouldn't have it any other way.
The BVI Tourist Board are super keen to make the Virgin Islands a stand out spot for kiting, and together with the support of Sir Richard's own Necker Island the talk about town is spreading. "We are thrilled to have these outstanding athletes be a part of the BVI Kite Jam 2010, many who've helped define this burgeoning sport over the years with their dedication and talent," says Charlie Smith, Founder Partner of Kite Jam (BVI) Ltd. "We feel privileged to have their support and commitment to make this event a knockout success."
