15th Annual Bridge of the Gods Kite Festival 2015
July 24, 2015 - July 25, 2015
The 15th Annual Bridge of the Gods Kite Festival is a launching pad for amateur kiteboarders attempting to become professionals. This event showcases some of the best amateur riders from all over the world.
The Amateur bracket-style contest features four categories of riders: Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Masters and Juniors. The steep riverbanks make the Port of Skamania’s East Point Kite Beach a natural grandstand for viewing the event. Also don’t forget the Blow Out Race – The 17 Mile Downwind Race From Stevenson, WA to Hood River, OR
All heats will start at the aqua docks and end on the grass. No standing with your board on on the aqua docks. All tricks will be thrown below the rock. All riders must exit the pool area below the buoy, no short tacking straight back out.
There will be minimal boat support during the Blow-out. The Blow-out is NOT a beginner event.
