31st edition of the International SprintKite News, the Acrobatic and Traction Kite Festival, Sole & Sale Trophy.
Among the best times to choose a family holiday in Cervia, September is undoubtedly the ideal month thanks to the mild climate, the hotels still open and the events designed for young and old.
International SprintKite News is an event entirely dedicated to acrobatic and traction kites. It is an opportunity to spend a splendid weekend on the large beach that will turn into an airfield. The event is part of the programming of the activities of the Cervia Volante Club. In recent editions, the Cervese meeting has attracted a growing number of employees. There will be 35 Italian clubs with over 120 guests, a delegation to which the Sole & Sale award will be named, experts in buggy and stack, acrobatic flight in synchrony and in team.
The International SprintKite is mainly characterized by:
- Kite-Surfing (the kite-rider flies over the sea on the surfboard pulled by a kite) new way of surfing in great ascent,
- Jumping-Kite (long jump hanging from the kite)
- Buggyng (frame with three wheels or three hulls on which the kite rider sits flying one or a train of kites).
Athletes need to know the wind conditions and their own physical strength, because the kite has significant pulling power. The event is dedicated to evolution, the use of technological materials and engineering studies, which they applied to that ancient dream that flies, which rises from the hand, with a thread, towards the sky.
The International SprintKite wants to give the curious and enthusiasts the opportunity to learn more about these activities and their secrets.
Children will surely be fascinated by the colorful sails and the athletes’ performances, but adults will also have fun on the Tagliata di Cervia beach and marvel at how such a simple pastime has transformed over time into a real sport.
Admission to the Sprintkite is free and the time of the event is from 10.00 to 19.00.
A new touch of color, already proposed during the 2018 edition, is given by the recycled plastic laboratories. These workshops aim to raise public awareness on the issues of reuse, recycling and respect for the environment. With a little creativity and the help of a few tools, you can transform waste materials, which normally end up in the trash, into new, beautiful and useful things, giving them a second chance and at the same time helping the environment!
