SuperFly Open 2010
Best Kiteboarding is hosting the 3rd annual 2010 Powder Mountain SuperFly Open. This spectacular and unique snowkite festival is scheduled for March 11th—14th, 2010. The event will take place at Powder Mountain Resort, known for the most skiable acreage in the U.S., rated best snow in the U.S. by Ski Magazine, and of course, infamous for ridge top WIND.
The SuperFly Open will have something for everyone. Enjoy ski-in, ski-out introductory kite clinics and watch some of the best snowkiter’s in the world showcase their talent. Launch off snow features prepared with the help of Powder Mountain’s own snow grooming team. Slide across rails and boxes generously provided by event sponsors. Compete in or watch any of the four competition categories; freestyle, kite races, best trick or big air. Multi-evening festivities include music, dining, and awards!
The SuperFly Open is a major stop on the US Snow Kite Winter Tour in the United States and dubbed as an annual “must hit” snow event for kiters worldwide! The explosion of kiteboarding in the U.S. has been demonstrated by the fact that there were only 2 events in the 2002/2003 season, compared to over 30 events held nationwide in the 2005/2006 season. This winter there are over 20 events for Snowkiting alone.
Our event will include:
a) Free Ride Sessions - Free ride the terrain, sliders, and snow features as you wish.
b) Intro Clinics - There will be introductory clinics for those who would like to see first-hand why snowkiting is so addicting. Once you l earn the basics of kite flying and feel the power of the trainer kite, you’ll be hooked. Follow the signs at the top of the Sunrise Lift.
c) Kite Races - Participate or just watch snowkiters race against each other around a predetermined course. Racers will compete in heats and will compete for top honors in a final round. Race categories are Men’s Open Ski, Men’s Open Snowboard, Women’s Open Ski, and Women’s Open Snowboard. Shadowboxlive are on board to sponsor the event by adding their "Personal 3D" Sports Recorders to each racer's board/skis that will record speed, location, acceleration, jump height, jump distance, hangtime, G-forces, exact object angles, rotation degrees, spin rates and more! Each rider will be given a CD of their Shadowbox experience to take home with them and will have a chance to win one!
d) Freestyle Comp - The freestyle competition will be an open event. Riders will be judged on a number criteria set forth before the start of the competition. Three riders in each category, Men’s Open and Women’s Open, will progress to the final round. Race categories are Men’s Open Ski, Men’s Open Snowboard, Women’s Open Ski, and Women’s Open Snowboard.
e) Big Air Expo - The Big Air Expo is an event for those that want to go big. Each year kiters are spending more time in the air and this expo will show how high, how long, and how many tricks can be executed in one flight.
There will be prizes, a cash purse and swag for event participants!
