Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — KGB Kiteboarding, San Francisco’s authority on kiteboarding lessons, kiteboarding gear and kite surfing, will start monthly watersports swap meets off this spring with a meet on Saturday, April 21.

Interested people can come and shop from kiteboarding gear and other types of watersport equipment, like kayaks and windsurf rigs, so all kinds of people are welcome.

This is the first of what KGB plans on being monthly swap meets. If one cannot attend the April 21 event, they can attend the following swap meet, which will be on May 5 and then held the first Saturday of each month from June to September, weather permitting. There will be free coffee and donuts on hand, so it’s best to come early or they’ll all be gone. The meets will be held in the parking and grassy area of KGB’s newly expanded kiteboarding school and kite shop at 3310 Powell Street in Emeryville.

For the product demo day, representatives from many of the kiteboard brands that KGB stocks in the shop will be in attendance, with the latest equipment for customers to test out and ready to answer any questions they may have. Demo day will also be located at the IKO school, located at 3310 Powell Street in Emeryville, from noon to 8 p.m., wind dependent. The alternate date in case of the weather is April 22.

“Customers, kiteboarders and potential new kiters are encouraged to come out to try all the new 2012 kiteboarding gear for free on April 21 or, at the very least, talk to our highly trained and experienced staff about this new and exciting watersport. Kiters wishing to try the gear out on the water will need to prove that they are experienced, independent kiteboarders to demo the kites and boards. There will be food, beverages and a DJ on hand. Visit our shop for directions to the nearby demo location. This upcoming demo and party event is shaping up to be one not to be missed. We have had requests from nearly all our vendors to be able to participate and we are expecting a large turnout,” enthuses Royce Vaughn, KGB Kiteboarding proprietor and instructor.
