Going skyward for the first time ever, Windfest will play host to the Red Bull Matadors at 2.30pm on Sunday 12th September for an exhilarating air display with Red Bull VIP area on the beach below.

Two new sports will also add to the visual feast this year; Ultimate Beach Frisbee and Surf Ski – a long, narrow, lightweight kayak with an open (sit-on-top) cockpit, usually with a foot pedal controlled rudder. Surf ski racing will be held off the beach on both Saturday and Sunday.
