When White Air Extreme Sports Festival left the Isle of Wight for Brighton last year, there were a lot of very unhappy people.
If you were one of those, then news of a new festival should brighten your day today.
A new Extreme Sports Festival is going to be filling the void left behind from White Air this coming September.
The Big Blue Extreme Sports Festival takes place over 17th – 19th September on the very same site of the White Air Festival in Yaverland.
Over eleven years, White Air Extreme Sports Festival had certainly set the standard and Big Blue is stepping up to the challenge.
Extreme action on and off the water
The Big Blue Festival will feature Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Stand Up Surfing, Thundercats, Surf Kayak Racing and Jet Ski Freestyle. Off the water, Skate, BMX, Mountain Boarding and Mountain Biking, FMX and Parkour will all be featured in the festival park.
Try your hand .. or feet
The classic ‘have a go’ activities return with the opportunity for us all to try out Mountain Boarding, join in the Skate clinics, or get springy with Parkour.
Thrill seekers can try out the Thundercat Powerboats, or learn the basics of Kitesurfing, Paddle Surfing, Windsurfing and Surfing.
The Graffitti workshop returns as well as the ever popular climbing wall.
Please don’t stop the music
They won’t be, we hear that the successful live music stage will be returning and organisers will be opening a music competition, giving 11 acts the opportunity to perform live to the huge crowds of festival goers. More details in due course.
