Dead Bird Buggy Bash in Galveston Texas

The Dead Bird Buggy Bash - DBBB - is a casual, no-schedule, no-races kite buggy regatta held each November over the Thanksgiving holiday in Galveston Texas. Started as an annual holiday retreat for local kite buggy riders, this growing event follows no criteria or format other than to enjoy kite buggying with friends new and old and promote kite traction in a friendly and safe environment. Buggy pilots, landborders, kitesurfers, sport kiters and traditional kite enthusiasts are all welcome. Be sure to attend the potluck dinner on the beach Thanksgiving day.

Check back here often for the latest updates. If you plan to attend please register online so we may better prepare the necessary services. Registration is free!
