Riders who have been riding all alone on Lakes and ponds throughout NY and New England come together for the first ever and first annual VERMONT KITESTORM.

Demo the '04 Frenzy, play some games, win some prizes (longest trek...fastest run...), bring your kids, your spouse, your mom and get them flying trainer kites. Learn some new tricks and have a great time in a beautiful place near the young and fun city of Burlington.

First choice location: The Sandbar, South Hero


Brought to you by Stormboarding, Windzup, Clear Channel Radio and Straight Talk Vermont...more details on prize sponsors and accommodation deals to come.

Excellent,
I live at the venue. The proposed location is excellent. Miles of ice. Thick enough for car races, last weekend. We just need some snow cover, and it will be primo.

Should be making the trip up with a couple other guys from the area. Very glad as well to see something out there with a New England focus.

Any news on places to stay overnight? Also, if you need help with something email me and I'll see what I can do!

Snow is coming this week. Should be a great base on the endless miles of ice. The ice is about 2 feet thick.

Will be playing at Sandbar this weekend, finally.

Looking forward to the event !.....hope you get the snow you need, we have been getting blasted with lake effect snow( up to 70in in some spots) along with tons of wind, Sat was lit up on the 12.0 tube on the SB in 2 ft of fresh powder on sandy pond(eastern shore of lake ontario NY).....a moon lit sesh after a few burgers at the local pub was a first in night flying...used some of the l.e.d. fishing bobbers(walmart $2.33) fixed to the LE for the I.F R. conditions. More snow and wind on the way along with full moon on the 6th. :lol:

http://www.northherohouse.com/ is a high end option for logding at the event in vermont.

That sounds awesome! We had some incredible night sessions at the PASA certification course in Montana - with glow sticks. Hoping for more of the same in VT now that we have positive numbers on the thermometer and snow in the forecast.

Plans for the Kitestorm are shaping up - I will keep all informed as we get closer. Thanks for all the offers to help and ideas - riders are emerging and we are psyched to get everyone together ripping it up and showing off this amazing sport!

Think breeze and snow...rzm

Excellent base went down last night. We picked up 6 inches of wet snow. Next dump is scheduled for Friday. West wind today. You could go about 100 miles before you would need to turn around and head back. Huge ice plate.
I am watching it from my office. Bummer.

Toby,

Tell Brian, Windzup thank you for not having the event in Salt Lake City. It has been windy all week here. If he had scheduled the event here in his home town, the wind would have shut down (no better way to get the wind to shut down than to schedule a big event and get people to fly in from all over the world).

Seriously, I hope you guys get some wind.

Kenny
