This summer, some of the world’s best kiteboarders will hit Canadian waters. Among them will be a group of young athletes racking up a list of firsts – first time away home and first time putting on a wetsuit.
KiteClash – which includes the Canadian Freestyle Kiteboarding Championships – has attracted some of the biggest names in the sport to the smooth water and steady wind in Squamish, B.C. This year the event runs from Friday, July 6 to Sunday, July 8.
This year is shaping up to become one of the most exciting competitions we have had to date,” KiteClash founder Steve Tulk says. “With the backing of community developer Solterra, we’ve been able to up our game. We have athletes flying in from England, South Africa and Spain. It’s going to be huge.
