Bellingham Kite Paddle Surf opens on waterfront

The Bellingham Business Journal

Bellingham’s newest outdoor store will have its grand opening June 12 at 2620 N. Harbor Loop Drive.

Bellingham Kite Paddle Surf specializes in kiteboarding, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, stunt kites and longboards. Owner and local school teacher Andy Holmes started the business in 2006 as Bellingham Kiteboarding and focused solely on teaching kiteboarding and selling kiteboarding equipment online.

The business has grown and recently added stand-up paddle boarding. The new retail location in the Harbor Mall will allow people to take paddle boards directly onto the water for lessons or practice kite flying in the nearby park.

The grand opening will feature free paddle board and kite demos from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and live music starting at 3 p.m.
