Liquid Force and Session1 teamed up to organise an event over the 21st and 22nd June for any kiters that like to ride with full bindings. The idea behind the event was for these dedicated wakestyle riders to hang out and try hitting some kickers and sliders and to share ideas, with the aim of making the whole affair a regular event.
Despite the heavy rain and seriously high winds in North Wales over that weekend the event was a great success, with encouragingly high spirits and enthusiasm from all. The standard within this style of riding is improving rapidly all around the UK, and all riders in attendance pushed each other to their limits in the jam sessions. Both Chris Burke and Tom Butler from the Liquid Force team were leading the way, and even little Will Makison from the LF youth team gave the bindings a good go. Other riders came from all over, with the best effort being all the way from Edinburgh.
Plans are already being made for the next wakestyle kite jam and will be open to all kiters that enjoy the added thrill of riding in bindings or are just interested in learning more about it and giving it a go. Watch this space for more info
