Kiterfing Downwinder

Start:     Beach Lane, Wainscott (see details below)
Arrival:   The beach in front of "Gurney's Inn" (290 Old Montauk Hwy, Montauk)
Date:     A Weekend in October (further details below)

  • Kiters will meet at Gerney's Inn (Montauk) and park their car.
  • A bus will be provided to drive kiters from Gurney's Inn to the departure point in Wainscott (Beach Lane). Kiters can park their car at Gurney's Inn.
  • East Hampton Ocean Rescue team will follow the event with jet-skis and beach trucks to provide support, along with other volunteers.
  • Arrival will be on the beach in front of "Gurney's Inn" (290 Old Montauk Hwy, Montauk). Gurney's Inn will provide free access to showers and changing rooms for the kiters.
  • Date: Since we obviously need wind, we have made the downwinder event date flexible. It will take place on a Saturday or Sunday during the month of October).  We will inform the participants during the week prior to the event, based on how the wind report looks for the upcoming weekend.  We know that some who sign up as participants may not be able to make the event because of this flexible schedule (unless you keep your weekends free!).   We hope you sign up as a participant anyway and try.  Worst that happens is you support a good cause.

Volunteers / Trucks

If you know owners of pickup trucks with EH beach permit that are willing to help, please let us know. If we can have couple more trucks to follow us on the beach, that will always help to keep an eye on kitesurfers, pickup kiters who cannot finish, or carry water, pumps, and other volunteers.
