ARSA Kiteboarding Classic

The ARSA Kiteboarding Classic is on again for 2009. Running for the 3rd year, this unique event is designed to encourage maximum participation among all Australian kiteboarders. This year the event will be staged over 2 days, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th of June.

This weekend is a long weekend allowing the Public holiday Monday to either travel home, or stay around for an extra day of kiting.

This year the event will again be split into 2 divisions, Pro and Open, allowing all competitors a chance to compete in a level they feel comfortable with.

The focus of the ARSA Kiteboarding Classic is simply to have fun kiting in a relaxed atmosphere, meet new people and party hard. We are inviting all kiters of every level and style of riding to come and join us. Whether you are just riding up wind, or you are ripping it up at competition level, this event is for you!

In 2008 we introduced Board-a-X racing to the event, an event style that hasnt really been offered in Australia so far, and it went off with a bang. After the success in 2008, we are going to make racing a larger part of this event, making use of the prime flat water conditions and perfect spectator views. We plan to have the best race format seen in Oz yet.

This year, the Adrenalin Rush Sports Australia Kiteboarding Classic will be a free event! Yep.... a free event. The only thing we ask of you is to come with a ripper attitude, lots of kites, heaps of good times, perfect wind, and of course your dancing shoes ready to party!
