The British Kite Sports & British Stand Up Paddleboard Associations are proud announce that Legend of the Bay will be returning to the Extreme Academy Watergate Bay over the weekend of April 23rd & 24th 2016.

This unique event showcases not one by two of the most exciting watersports, Kitesurfing and Stand Up Paddleboard. Over the course of the weekend competitors can enter either a one day Kite Wave competition or a one day Stand Up Paddleboard Wave competition. Should the competitors be proficient in both sports they can enter both. The competitor with the highest combined score will be crowned ‘Legend of the Bay’.

For those competing for the Legend of the Bay title, this unique competition format makes it both exciting and nail biting till the final hooter of the final round of competition. You cannot step off the gas at any point during any of the heats – you have to be winning to stay in the game. ‘There can be only one’!

Competition on both days will aim to start around 9am, with semi-finals and final held towards late afternoon when the tide has turned, which will bring the competition closer to the beach, and in front of the Beach Hut. Prize giving will follow after the completion of the day’s competition. Ideally it is aimed to stage the Kitesurfing Wave competition on the Saturday, and Stand Up Paddleboard Surf Competition on the Sunday. It however will depend of weather forecast.
