Last Weekend, VKSA (Virgin Kite Surfing Armada) 2014 brought the kitesurfing community together for an awesome 2 day kitesurfing festival, featuring international kite brands exhibiting the latest gear, pro kiter Q & A sessions, a big screen with live tracking of the kitesurfing and kite movie screenings, music, bars & entertainment, pro kiter demo’s, taster sessions, a family area and on-site camping and facilities.

The Guinness World Record

Over the festival weekend the aim was to break their own Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Parade of Kitesurfers’ – set with 318 kitesurfers on 15th September 2013. This they were looking for 500+ kitesurfers to join the Armada and ride together from Hayling Island to Pagham, 15 miles away, and become official World Record holders. On this occasion, due to the gentle winds, it wasn’t quite achieved though there is always next year.  Congratulations to Dan Charlish of Snow Camp for organising a successful event that Lewis Marquees was thrilled to be a part of.
