Default College Kite Series- East Coast Tour Stop #3: Miami, FL

CKA teams and riders continue to compete in order to qualify for East Coast Regional Championships.

Freestyle, Race and Big Air Divisions.

Where: Matheson Hammocks Park

http://collegekiteboarding.com/event...lorida-comp-2/

Sponsors: Adventure Sports Miami

Prizes: Cash for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Shirts, rashguards and hats.

Kite school

LF demos

The best day for the contest will be chosen and finalized 72 hours before the contest occurs (within the parameters of the two designated weekends) based on the best wind conditions available. On the chosen contest day Registration will open from 8am-10am, rider meeting at 10:30am, then begin heats at 11am. The contest format will be 12 minute freestyle heats with 3-4 competitors per heat, followed by a semi final and then a final. We anticipate this process to be anywhere from 3-4 hours long. Once the freestyle competition is concluded we will immediately start a short course race with a windward leward race course, which should take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. We will aim for awards ceremony to be around 5 pm, however if we have time we will try to run a "Big Air" contest(only if we have time). We will bring in 2-3 judges with experience in the freestyle discipline to help judge the contest. We will also bring in 5-10 volunteer students to help run the event.

Current rider rankings (Mens)

1st= Drew Christianson
1st= Sean Buell
3rd= Bret Sullivan
3rd= Julien Verglas
3rd= Lewis Hunt

Current rider rankings (Womens)

* OFFICIAL 24 HOUR NOTICE FOR CKA TOUR STOP #2: it is with much regret that we have to cancel the event this weekend due to an inadequate forecast. CKA's main objectives for events are that 1) they are legal (insured + permited) 2) competitors are CKA members 3) windy - it really defeats the purpose to have a windless event.

Next weekend's event in Cocoa beach will be rename Tour Stop #2 and this this event is getting pushed back to weekend of either Feb 22/23 or March 1/2. It will then become Tour Stop #3 which is the final event before Regionals in Cocoa March 14-16.

Thanks for your patience! Don't forget to get filming and submit your entries to the Video Competition!

* Official 24 hr Notice * CKA regret to inform that after repeatedly having no wind for the East Coast Tour Stop #3 in Miami, it will be cancelled until this time next year. However there are plenty of things to be excited for:

1. East Coast Regionals Championships are NEXT WEEKEND at Beach & Boardsfest!!! Please make an effort to come on out at this event is going to be HUGE! We are asking all clubs FSU Kiteboard Association FAU Kiteboarding Association if they can help make a poster board which will be used for photos at Registration, Judges and Awards ceremonies. Please get in touch if you can help! Maybe one day we can be as big as NATIONAL SCHOLASTIC SURFING ASSOCIATION (NSSA)

https://www.facebook.com/events/395543780582432/?ref=22

2. CKA Scholarship. This appeal is to raise funds to help pay for college kiter's travel costs to Nations. We have not had any backers in over a week! Please help by making a donation!

3. Video Comp. There is little over a month to submit your entry. Don't leave it to the the last minute so you can get some views!
