South Australian State Wave Riding Titles
Over 4 weekends in June and July, SA Kitesurfers will hit the wind & waves
to determine the best in the state.
Winters frosty tentacles have well and truly wrapped themselves around
Adelaide, but it’s not all bad news as winter brings strong frontal winds and
big swell for those who want to brave the stormy conditions. So with strong
winds and big swell it can only mean one thing- its time once again for the
South Australian Kite Surfing Associations State Wave Titles.
This is aimed at being a fun event for every level of rider (beginners to
the more advanced). Getting in and having a go is what SAKSA encourages – don’t
be a spectator, sign up and compete. Beach marshalls will be there to look
after you and the more experienced crew are always happy to share some
pointers. For the newbies this is a great chance to have a go at some decent
waves then kick back and watch some of the fancy footwork of those who have
been doing it for years.
To ensure good conditions the event is staggered over 4 weekends in June and
July (23rd, 24th and 30th of June, 1st July and 7th, 8th and 14th, 15th of
July) – the first weekend with a good forecast and it’s on !
The Event will be held on the Mid Coast with the exact location being chosen
2 days prior to the event, based on wind direction and swell. So if you’re
intending to compete make sure you keep a close eye on the SAKSA forum and
facebook for further details.
The competition will be judged based on the PKRA style of judging and will
consist of Open Mens and Womens, Masters, Amateur and Junior divisions.
The Mid Coast gives a number of great vantage point for spectators, so bring
down your family and friends for whats sure to be a fun day with some great
riding to be had.
So whether you’re strapped or unstrapped, hooked in or unhooked, throwing
aerials or simply out there riding the wave and having fun, make sure u get
along and compete to try and snag one of those coveted SAKSA trophies on offer-
not to mention you will go in the running for some lucky draw prizes, there’s
something for everyone.
Entry to the event is $40 for pre sign up (which will be set up soon at
