The 17+ mile down wind race from Stevenson to Hood River is planned to be held on July 23rd. As with every year, the race will be postponed if necessary as the race is only fun and, more importantly, safe when the conditions are right. The race is open to any and all Kiteboarders and Windsurfers who can confidently self rescue. Registration will be from 10:00 – 11:00 am, with riders meeting to follow, and competition beginning shortly after. By shortly, we mean as long as it takes to get 100 kiteboarders on the water! We recommend being prepared immediately after registration to ensure the timeliness of the start.
The race takes approximately 1 -2 hours to complete. At the end of the race there will be an awards ceremony waiting with BBQ, beer, and prizes for all competitors!
Note: Shuttle services/Car Pooling will be available before and after the Blow Out.
It is $20 to compete. The money goes towards insurance, rescue cars and other assistance available during the race!
