Shamrock Splash 2017

It's getting to be that time of the year again!  

Our great friends at Save the Harbor, Save the Bay and Harpoon are putting on another Shamrock Spash to be help March 5th at the Curley Center in Southie.  This is a fundraiser for the the Better Beaches program, which aims to bring people to the beaches.  Why should you care?  Because these guys get us the permission and the money to put on the International Kiteboarding Film Festival, which we plan on doing for the 3rd year in a row this coming August.  The Masskiting crew has always been well represented, and we have always been able to fundraise the minimum of what we get back for the Film Fest. This year is especially important because the Better Beaches program could face cutbacks this year, so lets help do our part and pay for our own Film Fest!  Your $20 registration goes right to the Mk team numbers, and gets you free beers, free food, and chances to win JetBlue tickets.  It's fun, there's a lot of people and nothing's better than than splashing with all your Mk friends :)

We started a team for MASKITING. Create your own account and select MASSKITING from the list of teams.  Then hit up all your parents, friends and co-workers for a donation... anything small helps and goes a long way!

Great initiative, thanks for representing MassKiting.com!

Hey guys, great initiative to represent Masskiting.com for this event. The access that we have to the ocean is priceless, kudos to anyone looking to help mother nature out so, amongst MANY other benefits, we get to play with our kites right in our back yard!

This is an amazing

This is an amazing organization.   30 years of their tireless work made our beaches clean again after decades of neglect and horrific pollution.  Pleasure Bay, Revere, Nahant, and Winthrop would not be the stellar kite spots they are today without this type of grassroots citizen advocacy.   Their state funding is now being threatened by the Baker administration.  Please support them as much as you can. Here is what the event is like if you are considering attending:
