Despite the funky summer patters this season everyone has certainly been tearing up every good day we have had at Jetty. Here is a little taste of a Classic Summer Sunset Session from this week, fun had by all!
The Live in Everrett crew sat down with Jeffro the owner of Urban Surf Kiteboarding to find out about kiteboarding in the northwest, what makes Jetty Island such a great spot and how to get into the sport with their team of certified instructors.
Puget Sound Kitesurfing Association (PSKITE) will once again bring the NW Kiteboarding Community together by holding the Jetty Island Light Wind Olympics (JILWO) on Jetty Island, Everett, WA June 15-16. The Event will include kiteboarding competitions in different disciplines, industry demos, music, prizes and more. Check out two local article write ups about this awesome locally run event!
It was awesome to see so many local NW riders out over the past two weekends on Whidbey Island for some ripping days on the water! This day provided mid to higher tides and strong overnight southerly winds brining some nice sized swell and waves to the beaches off Double Bluff Park. Kiteboarding is one of the many things to do on Whidbey Island.
This spot is one of our favorite Fall/ Winter locations to ride and can also come through in early Spring. As days are getting longer these may be the last of our strong southerly winds for a while as we look forward to the transition to Spring/ Summer Season in the NW where Jetty Island begins to fire and our Kiteboarding Lesson Program opens for on-water training May 1st.
