The 2019 Hood Jam is fast approaching!
For its 5th installment, the event will once again be held at the Slider Project Kite Park at the infamous Sand Spit in Hood River, Oregon from July 21-27. Thanks to this year’s title sponsor, Wind Voyager Authentic Apparel, there will be equal cash prize amounts for both men’s and women’s podiums!
As the second stop of the Kite Park League World Tour, the riders will be battling it out to improve on their results from the Triple S before heading to Brazil for the final event of the season. 2018 KPL Champion Brandon Scheid currently leads the men’s field while last year’s 3rd ranked Annelous Lammerts holds pole position in the women’s after taking her first Triple S crown!
