A Day of High-Flying Fun and Competition
What started as a friendly competition among our crew to see who could achieve the highest jump in kitesurfing quickly turned into something much bigger and more exciting. When we shared our story and invited others to join our competition, we were blown away by the response: around 60 enthusiastic kitesurfers showed up, ready to take to the skies!
The Thrill of the Challenge
The event, aptly named "Race to Space", was nothing short of exhilarating. Participants from various backgrounds and skill levels came together for an hour of intense competition. It was an exciting competition with most competitors riding a competition for the first time.
We used the Surfr app to measure each jump accurately, ensuring a fair and exciting contest for everyone involved. Participants gave it their all, each striving to soar higher than the last. The sight of kitesurfers launching into the air, pushing the limits of gravity, was a testament to the spirit of adventure and innovation that defines SpaceX.
Prizes and Partnerships
Thanks to our amazing partners, the event was not just about the thrill of the jump but also about rewarding the skills and efforts of the participants. Kitesurfshop Haarlem, Slingshot, Ride Engine, and SamSam Drinks generously provided prizes, adding an extra layer of excitement to the competition. From high-quality kitesurfing gear to refreshing beverages, the winners walked away with some fantastic rewards, making their victory even sweeter.
