Meet the Kiteboarders of #SolaireBlueOpen2017


Creating a new avenue for sports tourism in the Philippines and highlighting the pristine beauty of one of the most recognized islands in the world, Palawan, the #SolaireBlueOpen2017 gave another reason why you should visit Palawan in this time of the year. Consistent wind and scenic beach and landscapes paved the way for this year’s international kiteboarding event hosted by Blue Palawan.

Meet the Kiteboarders!

The line up is hot and with all players in, it’s time to place your bets please. Who will be crowned 2017 champion of the Solaire Blue Open?

Blue Palawan has once again opened its doors to the first stop of the Kite Park League world tour. With some of kiteboarding’s biggest names settled in at the event venue, they’ve already locked in the features and getting their bags of tricks dialed in. Aaron Hadlow and Tom Court met at the prestigious Solaire Resort and Casino in Manila for a pre-game debrief, flying to Palawan in the comfort of Air Asia who welcomed their mountains of board bags without blinking – something that is almost unheard of with other airlines.

Once the gang was all together, the tight knit crew of riders took advantage of the incredible location and hospitality of Blue to catch up and register for the event.

Stay tuned! The park and spot is world class and we expect to see some big things to come.
