2021 Redkite Santa Downwinder

December 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

We are excited to announce that tickets are finally on sale for the Redkite Santa Downwinder!
We apologise for the delay, up at the North Pole Santa has been very busy getting ready for the big night – wrapping the presents, making his list, checking it twice – and lost track of time.
The details:
ūüď欆Meeting point at Leighton Beach
ūüďÖ Sunday 19th December
ūüí≤45 ($20 for Christmas Party only)
Tickets are $45 for the full Santa Downwinder and the Christmas Party, including food at the Orange Box. If you would like to skip the downwinder and only come to the Christmas party, you can purchase a ticket for $20 which will include food and one drink
In the event of no wind and the downwinder being cancelled, the Christmas celebrations will still go ahead at The Orange Box. To cover expenses and administrative fees $20 from your admission fee will be withheld.
We have the Orange Box booked from 4pm onwards with music and drinks for the kiteboarding community to get together. A variety of beers and cider will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own beverage and leave it in your car in an esky for the afterparty. Friends and family are welcome to come to the celebrations!
ūüéĀ¬†Christmas is a time of giving and sharing with those around us. Kiteboarding WA has partnered with Redkite to make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer. You can donate to the Redkite Charity to help provide essential and practical support to affected children and their families here.
