Cornwall is a land steeped in folk law & myths. From King Arthur to Giant’s, it’s magical, coastline and waters offers an allurer that holds a power over those who visit and enjoy every aspect that is unique landscape.
British Kite Sports Association and British Stand Up Paddleboard Association are working in partnership in creating a standalone competition that is as unique as Cornwall itself. LEGENDS OF THE BAY.
Hosted by Extreme Academy, Watergate Bay over the weekend of the 27th & 28th of April, 2013. This event will feature two of most current dynamic ocean sports Kitesurf and Stand Up Paddleboard. Competitors will be able to entry either individual competitions, or they can challenge for overall title of ‘Legends of the Bay’, which will be awarded to the individual with the highest combined score from both competitions.
Watergate Bay, located on Cornwall’s exposed rugged North Shore, with its golden sands and nature amphitheatre shaped bay is the perfect setting for all ocean sports and for a competition of this nature.
Richard Marsh from BSUPA commented, “The Extreme Academy has a long history of supporting new and emerging ocean sports. Both BSKA and BSUPA have run competitions here for many years, and we are pleased that the Extreme Academy, has once again given they backing to develop an event that will show case not one, but two ocean sports over the same weekend”.
Richard Gowers from BKSA added, “As with many individuals who’s leisure time is spent in the water, they do a number of different sports, sometimes on the same day. We know many who kite, also sup, so why not create a competition that will once and for all decide who is the best at both. Its going to be the making of legends!’
