A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT AND SUPPORTED S.O.K.A.

We had a lot of fun with this years event(s). People came out from as far as Olympia, WA., and San Fran, CA.. Even though we had a couple of unfortunately turns in the weather,everyone who came out really enjoyed it and hopefully will make it out again next year. Our goal is to help promote this area's snowkiting potential, and develop a kiteboarding community, all while sharing the stoke. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED :P :P Next year we plan on doing something a lil bit different, to really make the best of everyones experience with snowkiting. Wether it be your first time, or experienced backcountry guru, this place has got it all. I look forward to riding with everyone again!!

here a few of the shots from all three events.
