BKA National Freestyle – Lancing – Round 1 – 30/31 MAY

We are really pleased to be hosting the National Freestyle tour this year. In collaboration with the British Kitesports Association, IKSURFMAG and Kitesurf Magazine.

We will have a number of brands in attendance with demo kit available.

Although this is a national event, there will be a real focus on the amateurs contests. We have new judging rules for this category that excludes handlepass tricks

Enter Here!

Depending on the numbers attending each event there may be changes to these categories. We are really excited to see lots of local riders entering the competition and so the amateur fleet will not be scoring handle-pass manoeuvres. The pro fleet is aimed at being a feeder for the World Tour, and will be judged accordingly.

The format for the events will be a Double Elimination to allow us time to get through all the heats. If conditions limit time this will switch to a Single Elimination to allow us to complete the event as fully as possible.

You will need to PRE REGISTER for each event, THERE WILL BE NO CASH REGISTRATIONS ON THE DAY. This will free up our time to run the competition.

After the successful open event last year, we are hosting another twin tip and race board event. We will be holding a number of races through the day, and each category should get at least a couple of races. Twin tips and surfboards will race together. Free-race and Box Class will race together. There are medal’s and will declare winners and runner ups in each of the 4 category. This is all about getting involved, and enjoying the thrill of speed and close proximity kiting. We will probably run a couple of different courses, out and back [ reach ], and a upwind course too. We will decide if the event is happening on Friday afternoon; on the 25/7. Low tide is 18:25, so lets hope for thermal top for some extra wind! Entry is £5, and will be refunded if the event is called off. Please register for the event with the button below.

LKSC at Paddle Round Pier – 2013

Paddle Round The Pier invited LKSC to host a community stand this year and with the help of the Brighton Kite Academy, BN1 Kitesurfing, Evolution Kites and Snow Camp aka Big Charity Downwinder we just about managed it.

We really appreciated all the help we received from members who came to help run the stand; special thanks to Andrina Kelly and David Funnel who both put in long stints both days. Our resident artist Alberto for painting us a big sign for the stand, Gary Levett for providing some brilliant prints to exhibit kiting at Lancing and finally Lancing Parish Council for providing us with some tables.

It was a really great opportunity for members of the none kitesurfing general public to chat to us and get a better appreciation of the sport, hazards and understanding of the equipment we use. It was also really great to meet kiters out of their natural habitat – we didn’t always recognise people without their wetsuits.

For anyone who might have missed it, here’s the link to the Big Charity Downwinder: http://www.snow-camp.org.uk/events/big-charity-kitesurfing-downwinder
