Lord of the Wind 2013 is rocking with registration growing daily. Due to demand, course racing has now been added to the event, adding an additional level of excitement.

Depending on wind and subject to change, the plan is to run Course racing on Friday Jan 11th and the preliminary racing of Slalom. Saturday the 12th will feature the finals of Slalom and Freestyle. Sunday the 13th the events are Hang Time and the Lord of the Wind Showdown, a race pitting kiteboarders against windsurfers to wear the title of Lord of the Wind.

Mixed in with all of the racing are some great parties. Show your dreadlocks Friday night and party with a live Reggae band at Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resorts. Rock the night away Saturday night at Palmas de Cortez and vote for your favorite at the legendary bikini contest. Sunday returns to Palmas de Cortez to award all of the prizes and nearly $10,000 in cash.

A new benefit this year is a Kite/SUP Expo, courtesy of The Kiteboarder Magazine and ExotiKite Kiteboarding. The Expo will be Monday the 14th and Tuesday the 15th directly following the racing. Some of the fantastic companies we have already signed up are Cabrinha, Best Kiteboarding, Peter Lynn, Liquid Force, JN Kites, Slingshot Sports, Mystic and more. Intermediate to advanced riders will be invited to try out the latest equipment that the top brands in the industry have to offer.
