SA State Wave Titles

Judging information: This year KSA is trialling a new judging system, using a similar to format to the World Surf League, by using multiple judges and dropping high and low scores. We are also aiming to go electronic to make the process more streamlined and fair. As this competition is a wave riding event, you are judged on your wave selection and your execution of manoeuvers on that wave. More specifically, the rules will follow the National Kitesurfing Series Rule book, which can be found on the KA website https://cdn.revolutionise.com.au/site/jhktyuhcfmho4zd9.pdf
Come and Try: This year, RIDE kiteboarding will have trainer kites on the beach for family and friends looking to give kiting a go. Come and try will occur between 11am and 1pm on both Saturday and Sunday (wind and competition depending).
Presentations: Presentations will be held after the event this year at the Goolwa Beach Surf Club from 6PM. So stick around to see if you win one of the awesome KSA custome-made trophies. And grab a prize from the table.
So crew bring your family and friends to soak up the sunshine and the salty sea air and they can watch the kickass kiters slashing waves. To everyone thinking of joining the sport, this is a great time to have a look and see what kiting is all about. The crew are friendly and super helpful, and with the BBQ cranked.

Bring on the wind and waves!
See you on the water
