Default Tiki Beach - NEW On Ft. Lauderdale Beach!!!

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Neil Hutchenson and Chris Kjos started one of the first designated kite launches in the USA. Chris has
moved on and Neil has returned to this famous launch with Tiki Beach Kiteboarding!

Located at the south end of the public beach, Tiki Beach is central to the action and good riding when the
wind goes off.

Neil Hutchenson of X-RATED KITEBOARDING has become a familiar figure in kiting all over, organizing exciting
kiteboarder cross competitions across Florida, for the Velocity Games in Texas and more. He organized the
legendary Ft. Lauderdale to Bahamas Crossing last year along with numerous pending events this year.
He was also one of the three riders to make the record kite crossing from Key West to Cuba in 2001.

The race start to the Bahamas last year.

Tiki Beach. a Slingshot Testing Center provides new and consignment kite gear sales, PASA certified instruction
with waverunner support, air for pumping up kites, water, a newsletter, wind reports, FULL MOON KITE PARTIES!,
hobie cat, kayak, boogie board rentals and a good deal more.

Neil has formed a club of local riders to support continued access at this launch and city licensed concession.
Rider support is needed to preserve access at this excellent, but technical launch in the heart of populated
Ft. Lauderdale Beach.. The City is keeping a close eye on kiting and has requested reports from lifeguards
regarding incidents if they occur. So be sure to help us keep things flying here. Kiters need to check in before
setting up and launching. Given the tight boundaries on the designated launch and bordering guarded areas,
you must be able to stay upwind to ride here.

Tiki Beach is well stocked to meet your kiting gear needs and to provide a complete day at the beach. Don't
forget about those FULL MOON PARTIES either, these guys really know how to throw a party.

Tiki Beach is located two blocks south of Las Olas Blvd. by the hobie cats on the beach and due east of the
Oasis Cafe.

For more info contact Neil at: 954-647-7228

See you in Ft. Lauderdale!
