KiteboardingUK Events

KiteboardingUK has been a strong force on the East Coast since 2000! In this section you can see the events we have run and been asked to be involved in such as a Ford Car advert, Kiteworld Magazine shoot with Susi Mai, 3 Lowestoft Airshows, providing equipment for Lucozade Big Brother Advertising Idents and much more.

KiteboardingUK Lowestoft Seafront Airshow Events 2002, 2003, 2004

Over years the years we have teamed up with Waveney District Council to hold Kiteboarding Events in conjunction with The Lowestoft Seafront Airshow. We did this in 2002 2003 and 2004. After this the Powerboat racing came to the Lowestoft Airshow to fill the events for the Airshow. Although we had some very successful Airshow kiteboarding events we are very reliable upon wind conditions. Therefore show events that can run with out such a reliance on weather conditions are definately more appealing. We had some extremely successful events within the Airshow program.
In recent years we have taken the event off to enjoy it for what it is.
However I believe we will be back to the Airshow in the future as now the Powerboats have pulled out of the program and our equipment is so much better now and also we have more demostrator sports available in our shop. And they dont all involve kites and wind dependancy.
