Suffolk Kite Flyers Open Weekender!

Event Date:

Time for another weekend of fun, games and flying!

Friday night we will light the BBQ so feel free to bring your own meat and cook!

Now that we have our own mower we will be working hard to get the grass prepared for this event.

Everyone is welcome to the weekend including the rest of the family, if it is a nice hot weekend (which I am sure it will be) we will be getting our big long slider out for the kids (ok and adults) to slide down, points will be given for the best slide ;)

If the wind is looking awesome (which I am sure it will be) then we may get some ramps out to play on :)

Summer 2011 Video by Lewis Wilby

Hey everyone, I just watched Lewis' latest land boarding video and thought it was pretty cool.

He really seems to have mixed up the old skool board offs/going big with the more technical new skool style tricks creating something pretty impressive!

Lewis has appeared and supported the Suffolk Kite Flyers for quite some years.

Check the video out on Lewis' new video here
