World Class Kiteboard Academy is inspired by progress and good times that result from competition, so we're bringing a junior comp to our backyard that's open to all junior riders. We look forward to working with the riders to refine our competition format and judging criteria so they best suit the competitors.

This is a grassroots event that's all about the juniors. All the money raised through sponsorship and entry fees will be used to cover the cost of the competition.

Hood River is the ideal venue because of its reliable wind, flat water, kite park and– most importantly– supportive community.
