Virgin kitesurfing (for a cause) – Branson’s blog

Richard Branson will be heading to The Waterman HQ this coming weekend as part of the 2015 Virgin Kitesurfing Armada. As a keen kitesurfer Branson is always stoked to get on the water and with good causes benefiting from the weekend’s festivities he’s even more keen.

Branson said on his blog: ‘Held on Hayling Island, from October 16th to 18th 2015, the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada is set to be a fantastic weekend of kiting, music, fundraising and record breaking. While the festival will be jam-packed with events, showcases and fun, the main aim is to get more than 400 kiters in the water, riding together for 15 mile between Hayling Island and Pagham. In doing this the group will attempt to break the Guinness World Records title for the ‘Largest Parade of Kitesurfers.’

So if you fancy being part of another Armada record (the SUP Armada took place earlier in the year) then get yourself along to Hayling’s West Beachlands on the seafront this Sat and Sun.
