2016 August 2016 Squamish Kite Clash

GSB_Canada-3607-20160827_SquamishLast weekend Squamish hosted “Kite Clash”, an event that brings together many of the top kite boarders from around the world for three days of competition. I was fortunate enough to see the “Big Air” competition on Saturday – conditions were very gusty with wind speeds exceeding 30 knots, which allowed many of the competitors to gain over 10 meters in height. A few shots of the event can be seen by clicking the photo on the left or this link. The event was hosted by the Squamish Windsports Society who did a great job organizing the competition and ensuring the many spectators were kept entertained and informed during the different events.
