Slingshot has been a prominent sponsor in many other international Kitesurfing events and is now the main sponsor for the Maldives Kitesurfing Festival.
The third edition of the ‘Raalhu Gudi’ kitesurfing festival is about to get underway in the Indian Ocean on June 18. It will play host to a see two-time world champion kiteboarder as well.
During the event, participants will be taking part in beach and reef cleanups, spreading a message about the importance of protecting the environment and encouraging young Maldivians to give kitesurfing a shot. Slingshot was attracted to Raahu Gudi’s focus on both environmental awareness and helping the Maldivian youth.
Kiteboarding is still a relatively new sport in the Maldives. The protected lagoons and steady offshore breezes make it an ideal kitesurfing location. Via thekiteboarder.com
