KiteWorldwide on giving away holidays & supporting the Armada!

One of the reasons we enjoy running the Kitesurfing Armada Festival is that we get to meet loads of amazing people involved in the sport we love. The community, the industry, the pro’s, the media guy’s – they all tend to have a passion for kitesurfing, running strong alongside their jobs whatever they may be.

The team from KiteWorldwide have attended and supported the Armada festival for many years, giving away holidays and being a really positive and fun partner, famously giving one lucky holiday winner, who was out kitesurfing at the time of the draw, 5 minutes to get himself to the main stage or lose the prize. A friend legged it to the beach to tell him, and he made it – in his wetsuit and to huge applause – with seconds to spare!

Make a weekend of it at the Armada 2018!

It has been fantastic to see the footprint of the Armada Festival growing year on year since we began the event back in 2013. Back then we had no camping at all, just one small registration tent in a car park and just the beach and sea to enjoy. But each year since the festival has grown and the space needed for everyone’s campervans and tents has grown with it. Last year these tickets sold out, and even with the space we had been allocated there were some challenges with the demand – so this year the council have kindly allowed us to expand the festival footprint once again, opening up new camp site areas and and providing more car park space for campervans.

More Live Music Than Ever Before!

Its been a lot of fun bringing more live music to the Armada each year. In 2013, the first event had just one small tent on site to register everyone and then 350 kitesurfers went kiting together, broke a world record, raised lots of money for charity and had fun in some pretty hairy conditions!  And then the kitesurfing community said it might also be fun to add in some music, some camping, some brands maybe – and the Armada as we know it today was born…
