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!

I would like to welcome you to dead bird 2014. This year the dead bird team had to make a hard decision to move the event from east beach to slp. East beach now has a bird sanctuary on part of the beach we buggy on and kites and buggys are not allowed in that area. Please join us on the other end of the island and fly kites and buggy in the sand. All we ask of you is to register for the event so we have a count on how many birds to cook and also that you bring something to add to the meal. It can be just about anything.
