World champion kite boarders from around the globe will join novices and thrill seekers alike to learn the extreme sport of kiteboarding this September, led by the founder of Dream Extreme, whose life was altered forever by the experience of incarceration,

The 7th Annual Dream Extreme Kiteboarding Charity Event, hosted by Dream Extreme founder Linda Argila, a Long Island native, will kick off on Saturday, September 17. In addition to the kiteboarding clinic, the weekend-long event is filled with activities including stand up paddle boarding, yoga, massages, a catered BBQ lunch and a gala dinner featuring silent auction items centered around trips and unique experiences. Over 200 people are expected to attend the event, which will take place on Napeague Beach in East Hampton and at Union Cantena in Southampton.

Argila’s own experience spending a year in prison, her career in philanthropy and her passion for kiteboarding led her to create this event, which benefits Hour Children, a non-profit dedicated to women and children impacted by incarceration.
