The Estonian Kiteboarding Association together with the Aloha Kite Challenge 2016 event and the Kite Safe 2016 campaign held their first charity kiteboarding event in Pärnu Beach. Kiters were asked to attend in order to support Pärnu Sea Security organization. The Aloha Kite Challenge is the biggest kitesurf event in Estonia which is taking place in the Pärnu Aloha Surf Club in July. This event included competitions for kite classes and also a great after party with many live stage performances. The event sponsor Saarineni maja donated 5 € for each kite, which was lifted up to the sky.
“This was really exciting experience, at one point I understood that there wasn’t any more kites in the beach as all the kiteboarders were on the water. We are a small country and to have such a great turnout, is the best moment to be in,” commented Kerli Otti from the Estonian Kiteboarding Association.
The Estonian Kiteboarding Association has made kite safety and security as a main focus with the Kite Safe 2016 campaign in Estonia. “Thanks to our main sponsor Nelja Energia AS and association members, we have done many free security courses to Estonian kiters. Also, we have set up stands with security illustrations in the surf clubs all over Estonia to share more information about how to kite safely. We would like to thank FFVL for sharing their illustrations with us and we hope that this educates our kiters and helps to develop safe kiting in Estonia,” added Otti.
