Morecambe Bay Slide n Ride 2012
Calling all kitesurfers amateurs and pros. Morecambe club alongside the BKSA are holding a slider jam on the 23rd and 24th June, anyone is welcome of all standards whether they wish to hit the obstacles or not it doesn't matter. It's going to cost £20 per rider but that includes testing out some gear, 2 days of hitting the slider and kicker and night do on the Saturday with a hot pot supper.
There will also be a small fun comp (big air and best trick off the kicker/slider) but this event is not about competing it's more important to us to get a bunch of riders together to push their skills, have some fun and maybe learn something new along the way.
There will also be some power kiting for anyone that doesn't actually ride but wants to give it a go as well as a skate park for a bit of variety.
