Default Spring Break College Kite Event, Key West, FL

Last year Triton Kiteboarding and The Kitehouse hosted the first ever college kite comp over Spring Break in Key West. This year we have evolved into a five stop tour consisting of 8 major SE schools and a national presence that is surely to build.

This will be the ultimate qualifier for SE College Riders who want to attend the National College Championships at The Velocity Games in TX in May.

Here's a quick glimpse of some of last years antics.

Go to for registration information
you must be an active college student to ride in this event, you must bring a current student I.D. to prove this

Riders who have attended previous tour stops will be given priority in event entry, Max Capacity of 32 Riders, Registrations Required Before Event.

There will be a pro division for any current college students with rider sponsorships.

I'm sure rick can help us out with a recap of some of last years top photos, though this will certainly be bigger and better.

Here's another Video from the 3rd stop to our tour of this year:
