2015 National Freestyle Championships

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:

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!

NSWKBA Season Opener 2013 – Northern Beaches Style

[vc_row el_position=”first”] [vc_column width=”1/2″] [vc_column_text el_position=”first last”]

Hi All,

The great guys over at NSWKBA.com.au are hosting the 2013 North Side season opener at Narrabeen on Oct 13th. Looks like there will be a Big Air Comp, Demo kites, Clinics and more. There is – as always – a BBQ, music and bar. Hosted at the Narrabeen Surf club this event should be great! If it’s like last year we had cranking surf and brilliant wind. Good on ya NSWKBA.

kitesurfing.com.au will be in attendance to help raise profile for the site and take some photos etc. Hopefully Pete is all fixed up and can get out for the big air comp!

Be there or be the odd one out!

Pete

KITE LOCATIONS IN SYDNEY

[vc_row el_position=”first”] [vc_column] [vc_column_text el_position=”first last”]

If you are new to Sydney or thinking about travelling here for a kitesurfing holiday or for work then you will probably want to know where you can and more importantly can’t kitesurf.

Thankfully the guys over at NSWKBA have a reasonably comprehensive list of locations that are suitable for all levels. There is a lot of information to absorb so have a good look around.

It’s not a totally comprehensive list but has the majority of safe places that won’t get you into trouble. Click one of the buttons below to take you to the locations pages.

We will also post up some of our own location info with more details about our spots local to us in the future.

In the Archives here we have some old NSWKBA Event action. Can’t find any details about it more than the below. I’m not sure if there was any wind at this event as there seems to be no kiting pictures!
