Kiteboarding in the Youth Olympics

Kiteboarding is in the Youth Olympic Games which is awesome! This means the best kids in Australia have the opportunity to head to Buenos Aires to race against kids from across the globe.

The racing will be on Twin Tip boards in a boardercross format - this means hectic jumps and fun! In preparation we are planning a bunch of opportunities for kids (and young adults) to get out on the water and practice their skills.

Are you an intermediate - advanced kiteboarder under the age of 18 or the parent of one? Answer THIS short survey to help us know how to plan and get you involved!
