WA Freestyle State Titles

The freestyle state titles, which were held on Saturday 7th March at the Pond, had all the right ingredients for a successful event. Clear skies, flat water and consistent winds, provided the perfect arena for riders to showcase their athletic abilities.

Kitestock

Kitestock, WAKSA’s premier event for the year, partnered with SunSmart in 2015 to promote the Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide message. Held annually in Dongara/Port Denison, approximately 350km north of Perth on February 13th/14th, Kitestock attracted nearly 200 kite surfers, volunteers and sponsors. South Beach was literally littered with kites ready for the punters to demo to their hearts content with representation from some of Perth’s leading outlets; Airborne Kitesurfing, Action Sports WA and WA Surf. Many of the major kite/board brands were available to demo including; Airush, Best, Axis, North and Flysurfer to name a few.

WAKSA Freestyle Clinic Wrap-up

WAKSA’s first freestyle clinic on Sunday shaped out to be a fun filled event, attracting riders with differing kiting abilities.

With the help of the coaches, riders left the clinic with smiles on their faces and new tricks in the bag. One member learnt a back roll within half hour and others landed their first railey (and more), after coming from no previous ‘unhooking’ experience. One of the more experienced riders was going for the harder tricks, such as the backmobe, which was impressing to see.

After the clinic, it was then the coaches’ turn to take centre stage as they entertained the crowd with their speccy tricks in perfect flat water conditions.

Thank you to all the coaches (Chrissy Gaudieri, Mark Richardson, Daniel Anderson & Simon Wichermann) for dedicating their time to the clinic. And thanks to the riders for making it down
