2013 KITE BOARD NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP RACES

2013 KITE BOARD - NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP RACES

The Finals of the race will be held this Friday, June 7 starting around 1:00 p.m.  The best place to watch and photograph the race is from shore in the Crissy Field area in San Francisco.

Although titled as the North American Championships, there are participants from South America, Europe and Asia entered. You will see the best kite boarders in the world in this competition.

After the end of the race, we can go over to the Off The Grid Food Trucks in the Fort Mason parking lot.

For this event, I recommend bringing the longest lens that you have.  Although I shoot hand held, this is an event where you might want to bring a monopod or tripod.

This is a FREE event.

    I arrived late,but still got some good shots of the race and the winner and the field as they came into the beach. Also as they walked up the beach to drink refreshment from a half gallon milk bottle. Very colorful and exilerating.

    No big crowds and plenty of parking. Unique and wonderful for San Francisco events. Thanks, Ed, for setting up this gathering. Weather was great, in spite of fog. This wasn't the most exciting event I've been to, but it was interesting and very colorful.

    It was a great day with mild weather and lots of kite surfers in the races. The event did not get very good publicity so there were not many people there to watch which is a shame. I also expected to see more Meetup people - I sent out detailed information about where I would be but saw only a few of you. Hope those who did attend enjoyed the event.

    The Event was fantastic. I never did meet anyone, so I just did my thing. Arrive early to photography Kite Boards getting ready for event. Weather was perfect, not crowded at all. Think I was more dogs and pets than people. Thanks Edward. How do I post pictures?

      Yes, I arrive early around 11:30. Had a chance to photograph some GG, Chrissy Field. We probably walked by each other and never knew it.

    I invited a friend to go with me, but he's just coming into town Friday, so I'm not sure if he'll make it or not. I invited him by email.

    I have a 70mm-200mm. Is this long enough? I'm a student photographer.

      I have a Canon EOS 7D, not a Nikon. This should still work, right?

      June 5, 2013

    • Edward W.

      Of course, the Canon 7D is an excellent camera.
