New for 2014! The Outer Banks Stunt Kite Competition will be testing out a 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!
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 29th Annual Outer Banks Stunt Kite Competition on September 27th-28th 2014. 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.
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 2.6.3.
Precision events for Novice Individual Precision (NIP) and Novice Multiline Precision (NMP) will be conducted according to the format spelled out in the AKA rulebooks (see above). The chief judge has elected to only publish and select three figures for this event, so practice the ones listed below, as you'll be seeing them again at the competition!
Program Precision Format for EIP, MIP, EMP, and MMP
The program precision (formerly called league-style) format will be used for the Individual Precision disciplines with the Experienced and Masters classes. The following rules will apply.
Individual competitors will have 3 minutes for setup time. The program precision format will be used for the Individual Precision disciplines with the Experienced and Masters classes. The following rules will apply.
- Competitors will fly a routine that contains the three compulsory figures listed for their discipline below. This routine will not be flown to music, and will be between 1 - 4 minutes for individuals.
- The competitor will begin the routine by calling "IN", at which point the clock will start. The competitor will call "OUT" at the end of the routine.
- The 3 figures must be flown in the order listed below. When starting each figure, the competitor will call "IN", and call "OUT" when the figure is completed. There is no minimum or maximum transition time between figures, but all 3 figures must be completed as part of a comprehensive, choreographed routine within the minimum and maximum time.
- If a competitor wants to start his/her routine with the first figure, they can, as long as the judges are notified beforehand. The competitor may also fly a figure reversed, so long as the judges are notified beforehand.
From the competitor's and the field director's perspective, the competition will be conducted much in the same way as ballet. The field director will have the precision figures on hand for reference. Since we're still scoring 3 figures and a technical routine, we will be using the standard precision scoresheets to score the routine.
