You have heard the hype about the new 2011 gear -- now come and try it out for yourself! Kitty Hawk Kites Kiteboarding Resort and The Kiteboarder Magazine are proud to bring you the Hatteras Kite Expo from May 28-30, 2011. The Hatteras Kite Expo will be a fun event with the focus on getting the latest kiteboarding and stand up paddleboard gear into your hands to try out! The event will also be offering educational clinics, raffle give-aways, and an SUP race along with nightly entertainment.

Participating brands include: RRD, Mystic, Underground, Cabrinha, Flysurfer, Best, F-One, Epic, Ocean Rodeo, and SU-2 Boards. Pending companies are Airush and Wainman Hawaii. SUP demos will be provided by Kitty Hawk Surf Co with boards from Jimmy Lewis, Yolo, Surftech and Naish. Kiters must be minimum intermediate level riders, able to go upwind, self rescue, perform basic tricks and be comfortable in 'traffic'. All people wishing to demo kite or SUP gear must sign a waiver release form and provide credit card information for any damage to gear caused by negligence or abuse e.g. the demo event is not the time to try your first kite loop:-)

I'm gonna be there... Now who wants to give me a beginner lesson for a reasonable price? I can't afford the pricey lessons from the schools there and I'm DYING to learn. I've got all my own equipment and I fly a 7m powerkite all the time so I'm kinda familar with the way kites move. Help a broke girl out :)
