I was gone last weekend. And the CGWA website didn't help me much with these questions.

Did the Blowout happen? Is it scheduled for this weekend?

When is the Freestyle Frenzy with big air competition? This event is the coolest, and I would like to see more promotion.

Thanks.

The Blowout is rescheduled for Aug 10 with windsurfers and kiters combined.

The Freedom Frenzy was held on July 4.

Kiteboarding big air was in June.

WINDSURFING Big Air?

Let's not confuse the windsurfing events with kiteboarding.

The Blowout was yesterday, but with zero wind (or worse a slight easterly) I think it's safe to say it didn't happen.....

Yeah, but it was perfect wakeboarding water at the hatch.

Where can an avid windsurfer find current and accurate information about this event? In my opinion, the publicity and advertising for the Blowout is extremely weak. Thanks.

Check Nwkite.com. Always lots of chatter on their forum. TheGorgeIsMyGym is good too.

CGWA doesn't sponsor the blowout and is not involved in the blowout, so any information posted is done as a courtesy to windsurfers. The blowout is sponsored by the Kiters (CGKA?). They were nice enough to include windsurfers in the event (assuming it ever happens). So you should go to the source for your information....
