2016 KSA Wave Titles

With the days getting shorter and the temperature slowly dropping, the wave riding season is around the corner! We at KSA are getting super keen to swap the twinnies for surfboards, and chase the long awaited winter Northerlies and winter swells :)

With that in mind KSA is excited to announce the 2016 State Wave Titles, which will be held between mid-June and mid-August (a 9 week window from the 18th June to the 14th August 2016) on either the mid coast or south coast. As always, we have selected a large comp window to allow for the best conditions possible, the exact location being chosen a few days before to suit.

As always, you don’t have to be going for the title to enter. KSA’s emphasis is on participation and having all riders out on the water enjoying themselves throughout the weekend. You never know, you might just walk away with a sick trophy or prize for just being there, getting involved, and giving it a shot. It’s all about sharing the stoke!
