Thanks to Antoine at NSWKBA this just came by my inbox! This will be a really good event for sure and it’s right on our Sydney doorstep!! Kurnell is going to be a great spot for the comp, great wind, lots of space to sit and watch from and the local hospitality will be legendary! This comp is open to anyone that can jump and it looks like there will be a comp specifically for people like you and me that aren’t doing knee defying 200ft megaloops! It’s going to be a blast and I hope I can make it down there to watch and maybe do a report. Check out the details below and shoot any questions you have in the comments below..
Kiteboarding Australia and Kiteboarding NSW presents:
2015 NATIONAL FREESTYLE CHAMPIONSHIPS
for all Intermediate to Advanced riders.
It is on our doorstep at Kurnell Beach so we expect a large turnout of NSW kiters to enter this event and hopefully take home the TOP Awards and some UP & COMING Awards.
Entries from other States are on the rise, so come on SYDNEY – WE WANT YOU! – ENTER NOW! The event will be held over 4 days at Kurnell beach from MARCH 12 -15 with predicted winds around 15-20 knots but we recommend you bring kites of all sizes, as that time of year can bring some howling wind mixed with breezes.
Note- that the Juniors are broken up into Under 16 and Under 18, so here is a great chance for the New Comers to take home an Award and/or a great Prize!
Exult Kitewear are designing the Event Tee which is going to be a sort after item which each entrant will receive on arrival. Bravo Pumps are on board with some powered pumps and other items to give away and DEMO on the beach Mystic have given us some harnesses and the BIG KITE BRANDS are all there to lend support. Kitemag will be covering the event, so you may end up as an article in the NEXT MAG!
