We had a great turn out once again this year thanks to kitesurfers coming from all over Florida.

The wind was good enough to run two races and complete the Buoy Racing Contest with 49 riders on Saturday. Below are results of the Buoy Race competition.

Very mild wind forecast for Sunday 13th forced us to postpone the Freestyle and Kicker contests to next Saturday 19th – weather permitting as we want to have the best conditions for a quality freestyle event.

Current wind forecast for coming weekend does not look great at the moment – we will decide by Thursday or Friday if we’ll run it this weekend.

SO the ACT #2 of the Miami Kiteboarding masters is yet to come.
Therefore all riders registered for the freestyle and kicker contest are still on hold , until the wind cooperates.

We are putting a webgallery up right now on the website to display all pictures of the event.
If you have your own images that you would like to share, do not hesitate to forward it to us.

Check out the forums and event website at for updated information.

Have a look to our Sponsors list right here who all contributed to donations, cash prizes, and logistic.
Thank you again to support your riding community though event like this one.
