Kite/Wind/SUP Season-End Party in Memory of Brett Powell

You are cordially invited to the 2017 Season End Kite/Wind/SUP Party on Sunday September 24th at Crown Beach in Alameda. Boardsports California, the SFBA (San Francisco Boarding Association), and the family of Brett Powell have partnered together to host this special party, BBQ, and Memorial Event in Brett’s honor. Brett’s generous spirit and steadfast commitment to helping others were evident to all who know and love him. In his spirit, the “Brett Powell Safety Initiative” has been established to provide education, safety, and access support for those who share a commitment and passion for kiteboarding and other boardsports in the SF Bay Area. On September 24th, we invite everyone to come together to celebrate Brett's life, relax, and bbq with members of the kite/wind/sup community, and also to launch the Site Steward Pilot Program, a key component of the Brett Powell Safety Initiative.

Boardsports California & the SFBA will sponsor the Site Steward Pilot Program at Crown Beach Alameda and Coyote Point San Mateo. The spirit of the program is to support fellow kiteboarding community members by providing a lending hand (as Brett often did for others) and promoting safety. Brett’s beautiful and vibrant life ended suddenly after a tragic kiteboarding accident at Crown Beach on May 12th. During his launch, a number of factors caused Brett to lose control of his kite and he was fatally injured. We want to bring the community together to discuss how we can combine the Site Steward Pilot Program with current efforts of the many individuals who regularly volunteer at ride sites around the Bay. Site Stewards will assist riders of all levels to understand local safety guidelines, launch/land & safety/self rescue best practices, and to provide information to protect access for the sport. Our goal is to establish a scalable Site Steward Volunteer Program that will serve the broader community in 2018 and beyond.
