Ok Crew ...as Jordo from SAKSA would say "It's on like donkey kong with ping pong".

State Freestyle Titles def a go ahead on Dec 6th 2014 in Whyalla. We have the Whyalla Council helping with sponsorship and Whyalla foreshore will be ready to rumble.
All the usual catorgories along with the sup races in the morning. SAKSA will be running the BBQ for all competitors along with catering from the Beach Cafe and food vans. We always pull a huge crowd of at least 1500 spectators in Whyalla for our comps so we will also have a jumping castle for the nippers and Bubble Soccer for any keen players. I'm planning on knocking Martin Bone right out of his bubble so he doesn't smash us oldies in the Masters ! It would also be great to see Croc in a bubble still in his wedding dress...

It's time to book some accommodation - Whyalla Discovery Holiday Park smack bang on the foreshore are also helping out with sponsorship and are offering 10% discount when booking for all competitors and family , let's support these guys. An added bonus is the Preso's and afterparty will be no more than 50m away at the Westlands Soccer Club who will cater with Charcoal Chicken & salads. The bar will be cranking on friday / sat night with Shooters only $5 all night and they will open til 1am for us with a pool and table tennis table so we can all gang up on Howdou the ping pong magician ! If you can't get into the park Whyalla Foreshore Motel are also offering a great discount.

Remember you have to be a SAKSA member to enter this comp so head to the SAKSA site and sign up asap .
This is an event not to be missed.

It will be worth the trip just for the charcoal chicken that's one thing Whyalla does best. It's the only town i know of that sells charcoal at every grocery store, and every true local has a modified laundry sink in there back yard to cook Whyallas very unique charcoal chicken on.

Hey everyone, my names Henry was wondering if anyone has a spare seat and room for kite gear for the trip to Whyalla and back. If anyone is going over early Friday that would be great because I'm giving Easto a hand. Happy to make a contribution towards petrol. So keen for this comp!

WOW ! what a day ...what a comp and what a party. One of the best comps i've ever witnessed in 15 years of kiteboarding.

Super stoked everyone turned up and had a blast. Thanks again to all the sponors and the SAKSA lads for running an elite judging panel along with super dude Andy Yates !

A special mention to the Westlands Soccer Club , The Whyalla City Council , Tony Leach , The King Family and Jake / Jac for all their help with organising this comp with me .

An Awesome day to remember forever !
