It's Summer, it's hot, and the seabreezes are back to their old selves again! Kiters around the state have been throwing down their best moves… now it's time for the SAKSA State Freestyle Titles for 2013!
If you're in Adelaide this weekend, come down and check out the state’s top riders smash it out for the title. The girls comp is generally small so come and cheer us on (or better yet, if you can stay upwind, it's a friendly and encouraging comp, so just join the fun and compete!)
On the KB4G Adelaide Facebook page I have invited all the fans to the BBQ lunch tomorrow so we can all meet each other, otherwise come whenever. We'd love to see you there at any time!
Hopefully one day we can get some top international female riders come throw down and show up the boys!!! This year SAKSA have secured Ewan Jaspan, International Naish Team rider, fresh of the back of his second season competing on the World Kiteboarding Tour (PKRA). Ewan is currently Australia's top Freestyle rider and will treat the crowds to some spectacular riding as well as assisting with the judging throughout the weekend. His riding is something you have to see to believe and Ewan will be on hand all weekend to chat and mingle with the competitors.
