What’s our history? When was it founded?
Action Sports Foundation began on the beaches of St. Petersburg, Florida among a group of local kiteboarders from Tampa Bay Kiteboarding Association, established in 2005. At the time, we were active doing beach cleanups and working to establish a solid relationship with Pinellas County park officials. Our community-oriented events were a huge hit, and we knew we had to take our small association to the next level and become a bonafide organization.
We chose Action Sports Foundation to be the “hub” organization of Kite4Life and ASF Adaptive Sports to serve as a resource to a broad range of sports, athletes, and related industries.
