[singlepic id=905w=300 h=200 float=left]From the 9th to the 11th of September, kite surfers and SUP enthusiasts met on the Baltic in Pelzerhaken for the first Kite & SUP Festival. Known companies such as F-One, North, Naish and many more presented their latest gear and had it available for testing.
We were also there and had a lot of fun. Despite the lack of wind, the mood was very good and relaxed. There were many nice discussions and the SUP contest, or the longboard contest, was watched.
At night we all celebrated extensively in the district.
On Sunday, with sunshine and light wind, we were able to test out the new gear of the companies. The latest 17er kites were released into the air and the latest boarders did not fall short. [singlepic id=904w=300 h=200 float=left]
We had a lot of fun with the young and old while SUPing. Throughout the entire day you could see the driver on the water. Maintaining balance and calm, paddling through the water looked so tempting that many were attracted to try it out themselves. During each in-between-time, there was a small barrel sauna on the beach to warm up in. To fuel your engine there was a wide range of delicious food including quiche, sausage and crêpes.
Overall it was a very successful festival and we look forward to it next year.
A big thank for the great organization from the kiteboarding team. [singlepic id=901w=300 h=200 float=left]
