Kiteboard Open 2010 meets Kite Surf Tour Europe

KITE BOARD OPEN 2010 IS THE SECOND OFFICIAL STOP ON THE KITESURF TOUR EUROPE
The Kite Board Open (KBO) in Noordwijk is the Netherlands' largest kitesurfing event
which attracts lots of pros, amateurs, enthusiasts and members of the general publ ic.
The sixth edition - to be held over the Whitsun weekend - is expected to once again become a
massive success and this year the Kite Board Open is part of the Kitesurf Tour Europe.

The European tour consists of five stops and meets the official rules of the International Kitesurf
Federation (IKA) which gives the event added value. Kitesurfers can compete in two categories:
Freestyle and Course Racing, and cash prizes of 5,000 and 2,500 Euros (respectively) can be won.
The points earned determine the athletes' rankings on the European tour for the European
Championships.
Three days of Kite Board Open
The competitions play an important role during the KBO, but all the additional activities, the stands,
the relaxed atmosphere and the huge party on Sunday night constitute its heart. Naturally, the side
events will be thoroughly prepared again this year so that Noordwijk can once more become
synonymous with beach and sports fun over the Whitsun weekend (22 to 24 May 2010).
During the KBO, people can become acquainted with kitesurfing in multiple ways. There are meet &
greets with the best kitesurfers such as reigning world champion Kevin Langeree. There will be free
kitesurfing clinics with, among others, kiter Ruben Lenten, but also surfing and stand-up
paddleboarding clinics. The big trampoline allows you to improve your handle pass and a super fast
rib rally trip will offer a sea-based perspective on the KBO.
The best (kite)surfing films will be screened on the beach under the title 'Movies@The Beach' along
with a contribution from Floortje Dessing (Dutch television personality). Not many people know that,
when she has the time, Floortje loves getting onto the water at the best kitesurfing spots. On
Sunday night, we will be hosting the by now legendary Kite Board Open beach party which will start
with a band and will carry on until the early hours with the best DJ’s. Finally, on Monday afternoon,
the KBO will be concluded by the presentation ceremony.

Free
This event is open to all those that enjoy the beach, waves and the sea, and want to become
acquainted with this spectacular, rapidly developing sport. Admission and participation in activities is
free.
