Armada Events Ltd


Armada Events are committed to running fantastic Kitesurfing and SUP events which aim to break Guinness World Records and raise funds for a range of youth and rescue charities via our sister charity The Armada Trust.

The Kitesurfing Armada

Back in 2013 we ran our first ever Kitesurfing Armada event on Hayling Island in the UK. The success of the event lead to the development of a bigger kitesurfing festival in 2014. Now in 2015 the Kitesurfing Armada is in its 3rd year at Hayling Island as a successful festival bringing together kitesurfers from across the UK, the kitesurfing industry and general public over one fantastic long weekend of kitesurfing, music, World Record breaking and fundraising.

International Events

In August 2014 we ran our first international event at the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada Spain, which lead to new opportunities to run further Kitesurfing Armada’s, next in Cape Town, South Africa planned for 2016, and also in other countries to be announced over coming months.

The SUP Armada

The SUP Armada was launched in 2014 during a no-wind day at the Kitesurfing Armada event. It went so well that the SUP Armada now has its own event at the Queen Mother Reservoir, taking place in August 2015.

Pleased do check out all the events in more detail on the website, and if you would like to run an Armada Event, whether Kitesurfing or SUP, please do get in touch.
