West Australian Kitesurfing end of season

WAKSA - Western Australian Kitesurfing AssociationFrom WAKSA:  (West Australian Kitesurfing Association)

Well we've come to THAT part of the season when kites are folded up and boards are but back in the bag for a few months at least (here's hoping winter kiting is better than this season!!) Once again, it's been a season of limited opportunities and consistently marginal winds.

Kitestock 2012 proved to be a windless weekend away, providing a great opportunity for SUP to cement a place for future Kitestocks. Once again, a big thank you to all those who attended and the numerous sponsors who backed the event in 2012. 

Highlights of the season have been the late run Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton Kite Race and the Redkite Downwinder, the Wedge Island Wave Comp, and the development of the inaugural WAKSA - Airush Course Racing Series. Thank you to all the members who have participated in or attended these events.
