Kiteboarding Australia announces the 2014 National Championships will be held in a little over a month, with riders competing in Freestyle, Formula Course Racing and Kite-Foil Racing divisions. The event promises to combine incredible action from the country’s best kiteboarding athletes with lots of fun for spectators and competitors alike.
The event will be held from 17th to 23rd of March and is hosted by Royal Brighton Yacht Club. The Freestyle event will be held inside the marina of the yacht club, which is an amazing natural arena with clean wind and butter-smooth flat water in both S-SW and N wind directions. The racing will be contested in the waters of Port Phillip Bay off of Middle Brighton Beach and RBYC. The first ever Australian Kite-Foil Racing Championship will also be run during the event.
Our mission is to inspire women to follow their own path and to find a different perspective from the standard offering. Genuine, bold, and passionate, the Siren collection lets you express yourself while on the water.
"After coming out in 1st in Freestyle and 1st Slalom at the 2013 Lord of the Wind in Los Barriles, Mexico I was sure to be back again this year. Not only a fun event with great riders, but it is for a great cause. Put on by the local community in Los Barriles, the event raised over $15,000 for the local school to buy children necessary supplies. This year I was lucky enough to walk away with a win in Freestyle once again and hoping to make it back once again in 2015! Thanks to all the volunteers and The Kiteboarder Magazine for making it a great event." says Netsch

Huge Congratulations to Grant "Twig" Baker for taking home the crown at the Mavericks surf competition. The invite only event takes place in Half Moon Bay, California. Forecasters predicted 40 feet faces and Mother Nature delivered. Twig took the win with a total score of 29.33 after earning the highest score of round 1 with a 10-point ride.
"I feel amazing. There's no feeling like it. Two of my favorite surfers were in the final: Shane Dorian and Greg Long and to beat those guys in a final is an amazing feeling. To win Mavericks... I did it 2006 and eight year later I'm older, slower, but I still have a beat in me," says Grant Baker.
