Usually the last weekend in January. In some years Jeremy has given late notice to try to reduce the quantity of response. I guess it has been too successful at times in the past.

I need to schedule some vacation time from work with adequate notice.

Any recent news on tentative date for the 2010 Invasion?

We're in January now, so....

i think that the jupiter invasion will be happening in Miami this year... just kidding Jerm, let us know what's up! Come on, you needed a little extra work and stress to start the year out right. I'm sure Damo and Modica will be a big help (he he he). Fire it up.

"Working on the format now. Dates: Jan 29-31.

We will have Paddleboarding and Kiteboarding this year.

More to come later.

Happy New Year!

Jeremy"

Just talked to Jon Modica, he just put up the latest on the event on Jupiter Kiteboarding's site at:

http://jupiterkiteboarding.com/store...on-p-2147.html

including:

"JKI 2010 Januarary 29th, 30th and 31st

The 2010 Jupiter Kite Invasion has gone through a MASSIVE overhaul in its format. To make the event as simple as possible, there will be a single entry fee for the events. There will be an amateur/professional and mens/womens division that will be split at the event. We will run events pending weather conditions and number of entries. Below are the basic details for each event.

Big Air Expression Session – Each heat will have 10-15 riders in a 20 minute expression session. This will include both best kiteloop and overall best trick. ALL JUMPS MUST BE DONE OVER THE JUMP BOUY!
Race – The race format will be integrated from course racing (sailing) and boarder cross. The course will depend on the conditions present. The number of races held will also depend on the wind. The format and rules will be explained thoroughly during the riders’ meeting.
Strapless/Wave and Freestyle – This format will be standard single/double elimnation.
Paddleboard – Don’t be afraid of lacking wind. Juipter Paddleboarding and Jupiter Kiteboarding have teamed up to make sure you have fun at the 2010 Jupiter Kite Invasion! We will have races, and pending waves…a surf event.
BY REGISTERING ONLINE, YOU SIGN UP FOR ALL EVENTS. Riders will be asked which event(s) they would like to compete in on the first day. Pending weather conditions we will limit the amount of events each rider may compete in. For example, you may only be allowed to compete in 1 or 2 events above.

WHEN REGISTERING ONLINE - EVEN THOUGH IT SAYS SO, YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED SHIPPING!

- MAY THE WIND GODS BE WITH US -"


If you want to compete be sure to register on the Jupiter Kiteboarding website and to monitor that site for updates.

It is still pretty far off from a weather standpoint, but it looks like the weekend should deliver both nice kiting and SUP conditions at times. Should be a blast!
