After the wettest June on record, it was touch and go whether the Surface 2 Air Summer Party and Demo Day would go the way many events in the UK had gone. However, Saturday 30th June fell on the luckiest weekend for hot sun and decent winds. Special guest for the weekend the current kitesurfing world champion Youri Zoon and Angelo Couchman, owner of Surface 2 Air Sports, worked the beach and pulled out all the stops to entertain and educate the folks of Sandbanks in the art of kitesurfing.
The excitement did not stop there, the Surface 2 Air Summer party sponsored by Slingshot, Trole Industries, Cabrinha
for Macmillan Cancer Support, went ahead with special guest Yoori Zoon. To raise money for the Macmillan Charity one item was auctioned off during the evening from Trole industries one of the event sponsors, It was a hand painted Slingshot Kiteboard only one in the world!. Also the name of one lucky person was drawn for the 'Mega Giveaway' organized by Surface 2 Air Sports
. Prizes consisted of everything from Atom Longboards to Nixon watches, O'Neill rash vests and Xenon caps. All this combined with a great venue, good company, amazing weather and talented entertainment provided by THePETEBOX
