The Armada Trust, together with the BKSA and BSUPA have teamed up once again, together with support from KiteRight, to launch the Kite & SUP Youth Tour 2018! Following the success of last years tour, funding has now been allocated from the Armada Trust (from funds raised at Armada events) and from KiteRight to support the Youth Tour aiming to support hundreds of young people around the country, getting them involved in Kitesports and SUP boarding for FREE and for the first time!
Nine tour stops have been agreed in a range of locations, and our Tour Manager Will will be working with local kite and SUP schools in each location to deliver free taster sessions in powerkite flying and SUP boarding, as well as offering further ways to get involved in these sports.
If you are aged between 12 and 18 and you fancy having a go at power kiting and SUP boarding, this is for you! Just get your parent / guardian to fill in the details, pick a location and a time slot and we will see you there. Sessions last an hour and you will be doing SUP boarding or powerkite flying depending on weather and wind! Sign Up Here!
Please bring sturdy shoes and warm gear for powerkiting and all wetsuits will be provided for SUP!
Dates and Locations
Sponsors, Partners, Kite and SUP Schools
SUP taster sessions will take place on the water and participants must be able to swim and must bring swimwear. We will provide wetsuits, but if you have a personal wetsuit we advise you bring it along. We also advise bringing a towel.
Power kite taster sessions will take place on land and all kit will be provided. We advise that participants are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions on the day and wear practical sturdy shoes.
Each free session will last an hour, one session per young person. If you want to try a session of power kiting and a session of SUP that is fine!
Please make sure you arrive at least 5 min before the session starts as you won’t be able to join the session if you are late. Please note all participants must be accompanied by their parent/guardian and parents/guardians must remain present for the duration of the taster session.
