During the days 19 and 20 of August, Nova Vaga Beach, PORTUGAL, will host the Kite Summer Festival Ã¢â‚¬â„¢06 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ powered by Jogos Santa Casa. The event will be based on a Kitesurf race, Ã¢â‚¬ËœKitecrossÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, opened to national and international riders.
This is the first event of its kind in Portugal and it looks to promote and develop this sport in Portugal, looking to showcase it in a relaxed manner, to an ever changing the public looking for different recreation experience.
The idea behind the Kitecross is to maximise the fun and camaraderie while reducing the dispute and level of ability to a lower technical level, where almost any rider can compete, and this way, increasing the interest in competing. The Kitecross consists of a race through a course with obstacles to jump and move between.
In order to make this event more than a simple Kitecross race, and to insure a dynamic event, even with the lack of wind, there will be available, in the event area, diverse activities complementing the race, during the two days:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Multi-activities tower with artificial climbing and slide to rappel from the top
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Beach volley and football fields
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Surf Simulator
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Drawings and diverse animation
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Gear test drive and demonstration zone
On the night of 19th to 20th there will be a party in the Nova Vaga beach enclosure, opened to all participants and public, with lots of fun, surprises and live acts.
