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





The SAKSA Robe Easter Classic is fast approaching… that’s right, it’s actually happening!

SAKSA is stoked to present the annual kitesurfing comp at Long Beach, Robe. A one day event happening from the 3rd to the 5th of April, weather depending.

The comp is an “expression session” style event and will be judged by a secret panel of highly skilled, legendary judges… the likes of whom, you’ll never know.

A notice board will be left outside Steve’s Place surf shop in Robe which will be updated daily between 9 and 10am with details of the coming days activities. As many of you know, the weather can be fickle in Robe this time of year, so by having this notice board in a communal place, where you can check the status of the comp, we hope to allow everyone to take it easy when there’s no wind, maybe head out for a leisurely 4×4, and when the wind is on, we’ll call it with as much notice as possible. All the usual social media outlets, i.e. the SAKSA Facebook page, will be updated with details as they happen. So if you don’t have a Facebook account, you’ve now been warned, the noticeboard outside Steve’s Place surf shop in the main street of Robe is your “social media” channel for the Easter weekend.

Entry is $25 and with Open Men, Open Women, Amateurs and Juniors divisions on the card, everyone’s in with a chance, just the way we like it at SAKSA! There’s even a couple of special awards up for grabs that we’ll unveil at the presentations. While the event has been scaled back this year your $25 gets you a crack at one of the hand craft and sought after event trophies and a BBQ lunch and a few cold softies on the day of the comp. Should the wind look doubtful SAKSA will still run a BBQ at some stage throughout the weekend just so everyone gets together for a chat and a good feed.

With some prize money and a few vouchers up for grabs courtesy of our event sponsors: Onboard, Cabrinha/JP/Neil Pryde, Holidays of Australia and FSR Why not get on down and have some fun.

There will be no Friday Night Party this year however the Robe Footy Club have advised they will be opening their doors throughout the day, with match’s starting from 10am it is a fully licensed and catered event. Details are limited at present however we thought this would make for a good opportunity to get together for a meal and a few frothies while also supporting the local community. Further details to follow.

The Robe Hotel have this year have come to the party and are hosting out presentation night on Sunday the 5th April. Combined with the Windsurfing Association the presentation night should be a fun night with food and drinks also available through the hotel.

SIGN UP – This bit is really important guys, there is absolutely NO cash signup. All signups MUST BE DONE ONLINE BEFORE THE EVENT by following the link to Kiteboarding Australia Ltd.’s sign up page. Don’t expect to arrive and have a computer all connected to the internet on the beach so you can sign up. It is a regional area, assume there will be no connection, it is your responsibility to sign up before making the trip. Once you’re there, if you can’t sign up, we can’t help you. At $25, don’t risk it!


And don’t forget you must be a SAKSA or KA affiliate member to compete.

See you all at Long Beach, Robe for the SAKSA Robe Easter Classic!
