Well what a night! With our best turn out yet for a Christmas bash, Maison Sax held host to over 150 people. We had kiters, non-kiters, professional riders, Mums, Dads & more all in the mood to get merry and celebrate the festive season.
With music from local Cuban reggae band, Afro Tallawah the atmosphere was colourful and the dance moves were…questionable. The theme of the night was community, something that’s super important to us. Sport in general is more fun when it’s shared with others and as an extreme sport, ours is safer when done together. We’re all about loyalty and looking after others, something we pride ourselves on as a team,so to help out those less fortunate this Christmas time, all proceeds from the night are being donated to a Dorset based charity Hope for Food. A great cause for good, ensuring single mothers and anyone finding it hard to keep afloat have a better Christmas this year.
Thanks to the support of our sponsors King of Watersports, Kite Worldwide, Ozone, Ride Engine, Saxx, Saun, the brew shack and the BPKC our raffle and board auction raised over £500. So a big thank you for digging deep and pooling towards a very good cause - Hope for food.
On to the prize giving now…it’s no secret that we’ve had a difficult year of wind but thanks to a few big storms later in the game, we managed to rack up an impressive leaderboard of scores. And, with more gumption than any years before, everyone involved really pushed themselves to their limits and gave it all they had.
