The Kitesurfing Armada is a unique kitesurfing festival held on Hayling Island, bringing the kitesurfing community together on 9-11 June for one fantastic weekend of kiting, music, fundraising and record breaking.  To date we have broken 5 GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ and raised over £160,000 for charity.

The Kitesurfing

Including the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt

There will be loads of kitesurfing activities going on, alongside recreational kiting in the bay we are planning big air comps, foiling clinics, beginner taster sessions, a race round the sandbar and of course the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt for the ‘Largest Parade of Kitesurfers’ over a one mile course (currently held by the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada Hayling Island a with 423 kiters)!

The Charities

Supporting The Armada Trust

We love bringing together kitesurfing communities from across the UK and further afield, kiting together, breaking World Record’s & putting on a fantastic kitesurfing festival. But alongside this, the Kitesurfing Armada raises funds for a range of youth & rescue charities via The Armada Trust. We have raised over £160,000 for good causes, and we want to do even more this year! See more.
