Kitesurfing Fiesta

A Date for your Diary


The St Lucia Kitesurfing Fiesta

The sport of kitesurfing first graced our shores back in 2002 with the establishment of a professional kitesurfing centre at Anse de Sable Beach ("Sandy Beach") in Vieux Fort - the island's best kitesurfing beach.
Since 2007, the annual Kitesurfing Fiesta has been held at this very location, hosted by the
Southern Tourism Development Corporation (STDC) at The Reef Kite + Surf, the original home of kitesurfing in St Lucia.

St. Lucia is one of the best locations in the Eastern Caribbean for kitesurfing, and March 12th - 13th 2011 looks set to surpass the standards set by previous Kite Fiesta events. Kiters from all over the world will be on island to soak up the sun, fun and thrills of the most exciting weekend beach party there is. If you've missed previous events, make sure you don't miss the next one - the St Lucia Kitesurfing Fiesta is always a weekend to remember.

Roll on March 2011 ...
