Kite-O-Ween 2012

Squamish Windsports Society Presents The 3rd Annual Kite-O-Ween 2012

IKSURFMAG is proud to once again be part of this amazing event, the images speak for themselves and to be honest you can keep the KSP World Tour stop in Mauritius, we’d rather go to this, quite possibly the most fun you could have kitesurfing!

Fancy Dress is mandatory!

Kite-O-Ween 2012 will be held on Sunday, August 26th 2012, at 12:00pm in the afternoon at the Squamish Spit in Squamish B.C. It is the tradition of a hilarious, fun filled, light hearted, non serious costume day where kite boarders get dressed up in costumes and compete in an easy going contest. Kite sailors launch from the spit and brave the windy Howe sound, for a chance to win prizes do big air and freestyle tricks.

Homegrown moustaches are recommended, they are less likely to fall off when wet!

Last year S.W.S. experienced an unbelievable turn out of 3 times the participants and double the spectators. Even some dogs, babies got dressed up! The beach was lined with photographers and many volunteers helped out.

This year the contest will be similar to last year and prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each of the following categories: Best Freestyle in Costume, Best Big Air in Costume, Best Overall Costume, Best couple costume and the Nobility Award. The Nobility Award is bestowed upon a kite boarder in costume who displays outstanding sportsmanship or “Kitemanship” during the contest portion of the event.

Thumbs up for a launch!

Contest entry fee is by donation to the Squamish Windsports Society. To qualify for the contest kite boarders must be dressed in a costume, have their own gear, and be fluent with the sailing rules of the spit. Contest registration will be held at the spit bunker before the event starting at 11:30am.

Bananaman kitesurfs!

Every one is invited. Kiters, non kite sailors, spectators, photographers, families and friends are encouraged to put on a costume and join the fun. It’s time to start getting your costumes and cameras ready, and be sure to see a sight most people have never seen before!

What would you do if you saw this lot coming for you?
