Florida Kite Racing League | May 13-15, 2016
This past weekend we were in Saint Petersburg, Florida for the 2016 Spring Kite Foil Regatta presented by RegattaNetwork.com, Elite Watersports, SPYC, F-One, Manera and more. St Pete is located on the Gulf coast of Florida and features beautiful sandy beaches with relatively flat water conditions that are perfect for Kite Foil Racing.
The event took place at Pass-A-Grille Beach based on the WNW wind direction, this location was perfect. The forecast did not predict much wind, but once said and done, we could not have asked for anything better! We scored three days of awesome foil racing conditions.
Intense battles were drawn between top Foil Racers from around the globe, F-One National Racer Jon Modica, Elite Watersports’ Zach Marks, and also F-One Dealer’s Vadim Polonsky with Green Hat Kiteboarding and Nico Landauer from Boards Unlimited traveled to Florida to compete. Congratulations to all racers, the competition was fierce, all did a wonderful job.
Always nice to see tons of Diablo Foil Kites on the water! We had an excellent response on the F-One Freeride Hydrofoil and Diablo Kite in St Pete. For all your F-One and Manera needs, do not forget to check out Elite Watersports in Saint Petersburg, they have a beautiful shop and epic set-up that is a must see! Until next time, enjoy the Spring Kite Foil Regatta May 13-15 weekend gallery.
