The first ever Red Bull Kite Farm will be held in Regina, Canada, on the 14th February, 2015.

The Red Bull Kite Farm is an endurance snow kiteboarding contest taking place only three minutes northwest of Regina, off Highway 11, a location renowned to Saskatchewan kiters for its rolling prairie terrain and 30-foot cliff of powder leading into the creek bed.

The competition invites North American snow kiteboarders to test their racing skills against local talents, in a 50-kilometer challenge. The winners of the ski and snowboard divisions will win an all-expense paid trip to Norway to represent North America at Red Bull Ragnarok, in April 2015.

Riders will be challenged by unique natural and man-made on-course features that will test their skills and push their endurance to the limit. Saskatchewan's unpredictable weather and wind patterns in February will also humble even the best athletes.

This is a free event for spectators and the public to attend. On site activities include: a snow slide, sleigh rides, food services, concessions area, a merchandise table, washroom facilities, heated warm-up tents, and multiple bonfires to stay warm or roast a hot dog.

Frances Osorio Rivera is just another kiteboarder. The only noticeable difference is that she rides the winds of her favorite spots with one only one leg.
