Wind Voyager Authentic Apparel proudly presents the 2019 HOOD JAM, the second stop of the Kite Park League circuit. The event takes place after an action-packed first stop at the Wind Voyager Triple S in Cape Hatteras, NC with both events featuring an equal amount of prize money for men and women. Competitors will work to increase their overall KPL scores before the final stop in Brazil this fall.
HOOD JAM runs for its fifth year in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. An event put on by the riders for the riders, Hood Jam started out with a dedicated group of friends who wanted to showcase all Hood River has to offer as one of the best and only public slider parks in the world. Colleen Carroll, Craig Cunningham, Rich Sabo and Brandon Scheid helped organize and run the first year’s contest without sponsorship or prize money by rallying their tightknit group of friends that make up the best park riders in the world. After a successfully publicized first year, HOOD JAM has grown to attract more riders and sponsors as well as pushed the next generation of up and coming riders to focus on their park skills in an effort to ride alongside the best in what has become one of the most prestigious events in kiteboarding.
