Terra Online sponsors 2010 Kitesurfing Fiesta

Terra Online was one of the main sponsors of the 2010 St Lucia Kitesurfing Fiesta held at The Reef Kite + Surf in Vieux Fort on 27th-28th March. The event spanned two days and attracted both professional and amateur contestants from around the world.

Melissa Gil, professional kitesurfer and current kitespeed world champion kept the women's field on its toes, while Jeremie Tronet, internationally-renowned professional rider put the men through their paces. Heading the team of judges was Damien Leroy, professional kitesurfer and the 2008 US National courseracing champion.

Sandy Beach is one of the top kitesurfing locations in the Eastern Caribbean and the annual Kitesurfing Fiesta brings together world-class action on the water and a great St Lucian party atmosphere on land. Night time entertainment this year included live music from "4th World" reggae band and "Off-Island" Rock band, while food booths provided a variety of scrumptuous St Lucian fare from fresh seafood to Rastafarian 'ital' dishes.

Terra Online is proud to be associated with this kitesurfing festival which is a community-based, not-for-profit venture endorsed by the Ministry of Tourism.
