Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson says this year's Hayling kitesurfing festival will be better than ever.
The entrepreneur recorded a personal message urging people to support the event, which this year will be held on June 9-11.
Sir Richard, who kitesurfed in the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada three years ago, said: 'It's been fantastic to see the festival growing each year since. I'm sure this year will be the biggest and best yet.'
He thanked people for supporting the event's charities - Virgin Unite and the Armada Trust.
