SAKSA AGM 11 September 2015 at the Grange Sailing Club

We must apologise for the late notice of the AGM. With the events of the last week, we made a decision to hold out on the newsletter for a few days. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you can all still make it.

The SAKSA AGM is on September 11 from 7 PM at the Grange sailing club. SAKSA will put on the pizzas, you buy the drinks and we promise to keep the boring stuff to a minimum. It will be a great night to catch up with everyone after this cold winter hibernation!

It is an important night for SAKSA, as it's when the new committee is voted in. If you think you would like to be a part of the committee, put your hand up. We meet once a month at the Grange Sailing Club (typically the first Monday of each month) for an hour or so.

SAKSA would like to see as many people there as possible, so let your mates know. There will be movies playing and there is stuff for the kids to do, so they don't get bored. The kite reps will be there to talk about all the exciting new gear, and it might even be an opportunity to hit 'em up for an 'early season special deal'.

If you've got any mates who are new to the sport or who are thinking of giving it a go, bring 'em along. The kite schools will be well represented, they can line up a lesson, get some advice or score a great deal on all the secondhand gear for sale at the moment.

Whatever… Bring your family, bring your mates and we will see you at the AGM!

SAKSA Presentation/Social night on 7/8

Hello everyone!

The time has come to present to you the winners of the last wave event on our next social night, Friday the 7th of August 7pm at the Grange Sailing Club

So, while munching on a piece of pizza and sipping a cold drink, come along to see who is going home with one of those hotly contested trophies that were up for grabs at the SAKSA wave titles!

Evan has again done an amazing job creating some pieces of real art work, and there are some wicked prizes to be won too!

Of course, aside from celebrating the wins of those in the titles, we would love to see you all for a beer, a laugh and a chat! Oh, did we mention, there will be FREE PIZZA?!?

Get amongst it crew! This event is for everyone, young or old, newbie or kite-aholic. So invite your mates, your family, and especially those new faces you haven’t come across before on the water. The more the merrier!

Cya there!

IMG_06831The time has come where layers of neoprene have become our best friend again, and with winter kicking off this week, the swells and winter winds have started to show their faces.  This means it is time to store away those twintips, and grab your freshly waxed sticks to kite some of the long awaited winter swells! SAKSA is yet again organising the State wave titles. Like most years, the event will happen across a 4 week window starting on the 20th June, with the competition kicking off on the first weekend that both the wind and swell line up to run the event. Location is to be advised 2 days before the event, but will be either on the mid coast or Middleton. Signup is ONLINE only, and you must be signed up by 8pm on theThursday before the event. There will be NO sign ups on the day.  This will make it a quick process on the day, meaning we can get in the water earlier, can have more fun, and most importantly are not missing out on time in which we can run the comp. You will need to be a KA/SAKSA member to enter. Cost $60, this Includes competition entry, bbq, soft drinks and a sweet event hoody. We will be having the follow categories:




Open Men

Open Women




Of course SAKSA is all about having fun, so whether you are just playing with the idea of riding in the waves on a twinnie, have just picked up a surfboard and are keen to give it a try, or have perfected your wave riding skills over the years and are ready to show off your awesomeness, it would be great to see you all along! So join us in another rad event! Stay tuned for the online signup link and keep an eye on the usual spots for info  See you out on the water crew! Cheers SAKSA committee
