Welcome to the new PSkite kiteboard racing sub-forum!

Postby Advance » Sat Mar 26, 2011 9:27 am

This is a PSkite sub forum dedicated to racing news, gear, events and all things racing related!

We hope kiteboard racing will take off in Seattle and the Puget Sound region like in has in San Francisco and Squamish, BC. Racing is a lot of fun, well structured and is now supported by several yacht clubs in the Puget Sound. It can be fun just cruising in a regatta, or challenging oneself against friends to see who catches the best gust or tactics.

Seattle has many talented sailors and athletes and we think this will be a perfect sport for our many inland waterways. Race boards are also a great way of making use of light wind conditions when surfboards or TTs just won't do.

Don't hesitate to post questions or info to this racing forum, or contact the PSKite race committee - I can be reached by PM for specific offline questions, feedback and general PSkite race committee involvement or organizational inquiries.

I'm going to have to get started on this. I was in Bucerias, MX (near Puerto Vallaerta) last week for the big Bucerias Classic event. "Racing" is much funner than I could've ever imagined. Of course, I was completely lost out there and maybe came in last place. Just fun to hoot and holler with 100 other kiters after the same goal.
I should have stayed another week. It was powered 12M every day, and the locals say this is the case from April-June when the valley inland hit 90-100 degrees daily:

In light of the latest Olympic shoot down for the kiters, we'll still march ahead and hold our own local races this summer. Stay tuned and welcome to the race forum.
