Skegness and Kite-Surfing – surely not!

July 2, 2008

This is just a reminder for you enthusiasts out there… Skegness and kite surfing… as Forest Gump said “it’s like peas and carrots”.

I thought a reminder was in order as EVERYONE seems to be talking about this competition – so get out there now, book your seats to Skegness and go enjoy a weekend of ‘mad-cap’ fun…

Times Online reports on 12 mad-cap British weekends. The peashooting championships in Witcham, Cambridgeshire was one of them, and here’s another…

Skegness, Lincolnshire

“So Bracing” runs the town motto – so brace yourself for a weekend of manic surf and skateboarding action in the east coast’s breeziest holiday resort. The sporting highlight will be the British Kite-Surfing Freestyle Championship on Saturday, and even more eye-catching aerobatics follow on Sunday, with a spectacular “horse-surfing” show – lest there’s any confusion, the horse pulls the rope, rather than rides the board. On dry land, meanwhile, there are demos and dance-offs at the nearby skate plaza.

Hardcore stuff – but this is a cuddlier-than-average extreme-sports festival, promising lots of family entertainment: keep-fit sessions and pop concerts on the main stage, a lantern-lit beach barbecue on Friday night, even a continental market. Head for the climbing wall if you’re feeling intrepid, or for the beer tent if you’re not.
