Core Kiteboarding and Woo Sports launch the #xr5challenge, a big air contest
For many of us, the first kiteboarding trick we learned was how to jump. It’s hard to forget the feeling flying high above the water for what felt like an eternity. And now, CORE Kiteboarding and WOO Sports Inc. have teamed up to capture these moments with the XR5 Big Air Challenge, a global contest open to kiteboarders of all abilities.1 The #xr5challenge kicks off in August and runs through November. Four grand prize winners will fly to Cape Town2 in January! Sound fun? Then, read on!
Former WOO global big air record holder Joshua Emanuel and CORE want to see if you can go bigger! All you need is a WOO sensor attached to your board, and a little courage to pull with your back hand.
Find out more about the challenge below in this email and check out our official contest website with all the details and conditions www.corekites.com/xr5challenge
See you in the Air!
