  • 1 massive community marquee which will provide the focus for the stage, live music, jumbo screen, bar area, cafe and the parties on Friday and Saturday night.
  • Outdoor summer chill out area with music and bar and quality food stalls.
  • A talks tent with pro kiters and industry experts talking about everything kitesurfing.
  • Free Beginner powerkite flying taster sessions.
  • School talks on Friday afternoon for local children.
  • Apres kite parties on Friday and Saturday evening with awesome live bands on the main stage and DJ’s with a converted VW van sound system!

The Kitesurfing

This year, the Armada itself has an ambitious target to get 500 kitesurfers to ride together and break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the Largest Parade of Kitesurfers. We know the kitesurfing community will be out in force at the festival, so if we get the wind as well – the Record is surely on to be taken back from the South Africans. It’s all set to be a super fun summer festival!

The Snow-Camp team will be at the event and we hope to see you there!
