Kiteracers on tour...
Board bags, airport terminals and chinese 100 dollar bills this week, as the course racers from Oz head to the land of cheap stuff...

It's all for the KTA course racing finals event being held in Pingtan, China.

Aussie racers jumped at the chance to get over there, with plenty of support for the racers, but only a limited amount of places available.

Stay tuned for the results from the event, and good luck to all those Aussies who are representing us up there!
