The Outer Banks Stunt Kite Competition will once again use the new format: On Saturday, come out and watch our talented kite flyers performing demonstrations of kite flying set to music as well as pair & team kite flying demonstrations. Interested in learning how to fly? Instructors will be on hand to teach the basics of two string and four string kite flying as well!
Also on Saturday, the OBSKC event is being run concurrently with the Outer Banks Brewtäg, as competitors vie to propel an empty 1/6 beer keg the farthest distance using homemade flying contraptions.
Then, join us all-day Sunday for kite flying competition and entertainment. We'll begin Sunday with the non-musical precision disciplines, and spend the whole afternoon competing while flying to music.
Taking place once again at the Outer Banks Event Site (Windmill Point), located at 6906 S. Croatan Hwy. in Nags Head. This location is 3.2 miles south of the main Kitty Hawk Kites store at Jockey's Ridge, and is about a 10 minute drive from the indoor kite flying space at First Flight High School. Best of all, parking is FREE at this new location!
Kitty Hawk Kites holds the 31st Annual Outer Banks Stunt Kite Competition on October 22-23rd 2016. Two days of competitive kite flying, team performances and kites dancing to music!

Depending upon registration numbers, some disciplines may be combined for scheduling efficiency. All scores will be reported to the AKA and Eastern League by discipline, regardless of how they are run.
NOTE: OBSKC will be running the Program Precision format for non-Novice, individual dual- and multi-line precision disciplines. The Program Precision format requires that the competitor fly the three figures listed below (in order) as components of a 1-4 minute technical program. If you haven't flown the format before, it's fast, fun, and much more exciting than the "standard" precision format. There will be on-field briefings before and after precision disciplines for questions.
Novices will still compete under the old-style format where each figure will be flown individually, followed by a 1-3 minute technical program. As we've tried at prior events this season, we're pre-publishing just 3 figures for every discipline, so there's no excuse not to get out and practice!
OBSKC will be run under the rules and guidelines in the International Sport Kite (ISK) Competition Rules version 2.4, ISK Judges' Book version 2.2, ISK Compulsories Book version 2.2, and the AKA Appendix version 2.6.5.
