Shark Bay, Langebaan provided the perfect setting for the finale of the SAKA Summer Kiteboard Series – The series is Presented by Price Check and supported by Kenings Car Hire and the whole kitesurfing industry!
All elements came together to set up a fantastic day of Freestyle kiting, warm flat water, crisp wind conditions and a massive thanks to Riccardo Scarpelini for allowing us to set up on his property.
The only obstacle we had was a rapid out going tide which pushed the competition area further out into the channel in the middle of the lagoon, thankfully the judges had a boat to set up on and drift out with the tide to stay close the the action.
The level of kiteboarding has elevated with every event this year and South Africa boasts some world class talent – good luck to all those traveling on the various international competition tours this year!
It was a great way to end off a fantastic season, the Overall Prize Giving and end of season party will take place at the Big Bay Lifesaving Club on Friday 22 April from 7pm. Stay tuned to One Movement and to www.saka.co.za for announcements of as well as the dates for next seasons events.
