Att: Cali schools!

Pro Leezure brings you a comp for Cali schools to determine the best Freestyle and Surf college riders! We look to break down the event into Advanced and Amateur divisions across each of Freestyle and Wave competitions. We will do our best to run all of these events with 2-3 heats per division but much of that will be wind dependent. Typically there are less entrants in the Advanced category. We usually divvy up $250 of cash to the top 3 riders in Adv and Ama Freestyle and 1st place of the Surf.

Top riders will be invited to Nationals the summer to square off the best East coast riders! You can help us by supporting our campaign to raise funds for competitors to get to Nationals:

Finally, we are extending the video competition to the end of April to give West coast schools a shot at winning it! Submit your riding videos and be sure to include the CKA bumper.

***Official 48 hr Notice***
Things continue to go our way at Pismo Beach and the forecast is still set at 10-20 kts out of the West and a swell of 5-7ft with increasing winds towards the end of the day. Registration is from 9-11am Friday morning, rider meeting at 11:30, first heat at noon (wind depending). We are planning on setting up closer to Grand Ave, where there is better parking and an entrance to the beach ($5 daily).
Given the larger swell on Friday, we hope to start with the surf division and do the freestyle on Saturday. If the forecast holds then we should be able to have the contest wrapped up by the end the day Saturday. We will discuss the judging criteria at the rider meeting Friday morning, but you will be judged based on your moves while surfing, with a best out of 100 pts format. The heats will be determined after registration has concluded, but you should expect four man heats of 10 min and either a single or double elimination depending on the number of individuals in your division.
Mucho importante, we need to leave the beach as clean as we found it, so we are asking for volunteers to help with collecting garbage and bringing them to the bin.
Judges have been announced. Afterparty brought to you by ‪#‎BIP‬.
Nationals
Are unlikely to go down in June. We are very excited with our current proposal for early July. Stay tuned for further info. CKA provided clubs with invitation to Nationals which they used to gain funding for travel and accommodation allowances.
Jobs at CKA
We are proud to announce the new role at CKA of Industry Coordinator. Alumni Billy Bosch has volunteered to take the role so we hope to be able to offer even more prizes and deals from out sponsors moving forward. We are desperately seeking Media who will be responsible to ensure photos at events are taken and they are filmed/edited. Also knowledge of running social media a bonus.

Deadline for all entries into the $1,000 cash prize extension to our Video comp is April 22. All videos will be counted and the team with the most video hits winds a 2013 Best 12m kite.
