We believe that racing holds a fun future of the sport for the majority of kiteboarders. Fun, challenging and addictive, getting into a tussle around a course with a mate is really good fun, and you don't need to be some sort of elastic youth to be competitive.
2009 Women's World Racing Champion, Steph Bridge, is running a Race Cup event at her centre in Exmouth, Devon 19 & 20 June. Don't worry if you've never raced before - it's been set up to encourage more people to get involved in this super fun discipline. There will be categories open to people wanting to race on twin-tips, surfboards and raceboards and the emphasis is on fun and learning.
Steph is a machine on the race course and, as well as being a women's World Champion, she places well inside the top ten in the men's World Championship classifications. Super technical and talented, she's also a great instructor, so get yourself along and get on the water with her. There will also be a beach party / BBQ and a live band on the Saturday night.
