There will be demonstrations, chance for you to try some and get a few tips from the experts, kite fight challenge with trophies for the winners and a free fly kite area that you can fly your own kite here. 

What better thing to do than spend some time on our beautiful beach with a kite in your hand. What an awesome time to #visitwestwardho

We have created three free fly areas for the day as can be seen on the event map. Nearest to the Pebble Ridge is the Static Kites Free fly area. This is for single line, dual line stunt kites and small power kites. 

We have a wheeled/big power kite area in the middle. This is for buggys, land boards and big power kites on the perimeters. 

On the water we have a Kitesurfers area for the water users. 

All of these areas will have marshals just to keep it all safe.
