Europe’s biggest kitesurfing and live music festival returns to Hayling Island with big plans for 2019.
The event will run over 3 full days with a full kitesurfing and live music schedule for Friday, Saturday and Sunday – so get down there early and make a long weekend of it!
On the festival side, 3 days of live music across two stages will keep the festival jumping and the BMX and parkour features returnalongside new slackline and circus skills sessions for the kids. A dedicated Family Zone provides loads of other fun activities for the little ones too. Entry to the festival area is free as always, just register for your tickets online.
On the kitesurfing side we are excited about the plans for a new Beach Demo and Coaching Zone with a live PA system located directly on the beach, so you can get tips and demo’s from the pro’s on all aspects of kitesurfing and then hit the water yourself to put your new skills to the test. Full access for recreational kitesurfing over all 3 days at awesome CBK beach (normally members only) is included in your ticket.
The British Kitesurfing Championships also return, alongside the Kite SUP Run charity triathlon, big air competitions, a new youth training zone, world class pro-riders and taster powerkite sessions for beginners.
Your kitesurfing ticket includes a bespoke 100% recycled ocean waste event rashie, water safety cover and access to everything on the water over the weekend. Duotone, Cabrinha and more brands than ever have signed up to exhibit in the marquee, showcasing the latest gear and clothing and giving the best advice to everyone interested in the sport.
The campsites and campervan zones have been extended again as they sold out last year – so there are more tickets available but we are still limited with the total space at Hayling Island, so please make sure you buy well in advance to guarantee your spot.
Ringwood Brewery are helping us run two bars not one this year, including a new pub style venue on site called the Bar ‘n’ Lines! The cocktail bar returns, and DJ’s and late-night parties finish each day. Stalls and stands to browse and an awesome food court with delicious range of quality food options will complete the festival area. As usual several charities will be supported and be present on site, and more features are still to be confirmed.
