S2AS Summer Party Event Run-Down!

Its always hard to put into words such a fantastic event and evening! and its even harder when you raise over £4000 for a worthy charity!

The Surface 2 Air Sports Summer Party 2011 was held in Sandbanks, Poole and had an impressive turnout of over 200 guests, many being friends of S2AS and the Poole Kitesurf Club!

The night kicked off with sunshine and a BBQ as the drinks started to flow casually, it wasnt too long before Jazzys cafe was packed with people and the auctions began! For those not aware the whole event was to aid the Macmillan Cancer Research charity, who not only work to defeat the disease but also greatly help those affected by it. There are a few key people in the Poole Kitesurf Club recently effected by this disease and raising this amount of money for the charity is a huge step forward!

There were a great variety of items for auction including:

- Directional waveboard with custom Poole Harbour hand painted artwork
- North kiteboard Footstraps
- Super limited edition Trole Industries framed Artboard
- Axxon Kiteboard
- Clothing
- Kitesurf Tuituon
- Longboard
- Even our very own S2AS Staff!

All together we managed to raise over £4000 through the auction which was a great success!

After the auction the band Southwest Life started playing and succeeded to get the crowd going with classic rock and pop anthems!

Shortly followed by the Petebox, the vocal and technical genius who really raised the roof and got people moving with no gimmicks just raw talent! Check out his site or any of his youtube videos to catch this guy!
A huge thankyou to all who attended to make the night so special! And an even bigger thankyou to those who bid and donated their money to a good cause! A special shoutout for the Poole Kitesurf Club and Trole Industries for their epic support!

People are still talking about this night but we can only promise to beat it next year! See you at the S2AS Summer Party 2012!
