BKC Finals in Hunstanton and Freestyle Champions 2017!

Hosted at the Hunstanton Sailing Club the third and final round of the British Kitesurfing Championships went off in late July. Completing their competitions were the junior boys and girls, junior pro, amateur men and women and pro women.

Unfortunately there wasn’t quite enough wind to complete the pro men or masters… but with two successful windy events prior to Hunstanton in Westward Ho! and at Hayling Island for the Kitesurfing Armada – solid results have been logged for the overall championship standings!

The British Kitesports Association would like to congratulate all riders, wherever they finished, for a wonderful season, and to thank Hunstanton Sailing Club for hosting the event, to Kiteworld Magazine and IKSURFMAG as media sponsors and the following sponsors, without whom the tour would not be possible!

  • North Kiteboarding
  • Cabrinha
  • Stryder Kiteboards
  • ATBShop
  • Ozone Kites
  • Flysurfer
  • Liquid Force
  • Brunotti
