The first round was on the Gold Coast November 12-15.  There was excellent conditions and strong competition for QLD state crown.

For the first time there is a link to New Zealand with a round in Christchurch this weekend 19-22 November.

We’ve got a great format and it promote good kitesurfing – It’s really great to have a national competition up a running again – huge thanks to the organiser David DeWitt and the major sponsors Classic Holidays for making it happen.”
