An extreme weekend is guaranteed for all at the third Skegness Kite and X-Fest 2008 on July 11-13. The weekend is going to be immense with an incredible number of extreme sports activities, demos, and competitions as well as live music, stalls and workshops.

Event organiser Jade Corssen said: “There really will be something for everyone. “It’s a little glimpse of what Skegness could be and the opportunities available through our academy for all young people in the area with a dream to aim higher to be part of a world class event.”

One of the main attractions this year will be the return of the horse stunt riders of Independent Horse who will launch the UK’s first horse-surfing competition. This has only been done in France previously and the riders hope to make this the beginning of a European tour for the contest.

The event will once again host the first round of the British Kitesurfing Association (BKSA) competitions, and BKSA members will offer people the chance to have a go at powerkiting. There will be a lantern beach chill out session, a music festival at Whisky A Go Go with local bands and singers, and lots of fun for all ages.

The X-Site skate park will be holding demos and showing off its new outdoor plaza, and there will be a fashion show, beach aerobics, breakdance workshops, climbing, a bungee run, wrestling and so much more. The events will take place on the beach near the X-Site skate park, at X-Site and the car park, and other venues where specified.
