CKA teams and riders continue to compete in order to qualify for East Coast Regional Championships.

Freestyle, Race and Big Air Divisions.

Where: Matheson Hammocks Park

http://collegekiteboarding.com/events/u ... da-comp-2/

Sponsors: Adventure Sports Miami

Prizes: Cash for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Shirts, rashguards and hats.

Kite school

LF demos

The best day for the contest will be chosen and finalized 72 hours before the contest occurs (within the parameters of the two designated weekends) based on the best wind conditions available. On the chosen contest day Registration will open from 8am-10am, rider meeting at 10:30am, then begin heats at 11am. The contest format will be 12 minute freestyle heats with 3-4 competitors per heat, followed by a semi final and then a final. We anticipate this process to be anywhere from 3-4 hours long. Once the freestyle competition is concluded we will immediately start a short course race with a windward leward race course, which should take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. We will aim for awards ceremony to be around 5 pm, however if we have time we will try to run a "Big Air" contest(only if we have time). We will bring in 2-3 judges with experience in the freestyle discipline to help judge the contest. We will also bring in 5-10 volunteer students to help run the event.

Current rider rankings (Mens)

1st= Drew Christianson
1st= Sean Buell
3rd= Bret Sullivan
3rd= Julien Verglas
3rd= Lewis Hunt

Current rider rankings (Womens)
1st Jaime Fields

Current school rankings

* OFFICIAL 24 HOUR NOTICE FOR CKA TOUR STOP #2: it is with much regret that we have to cancel the event this weekend due to an inadequate forecast. CKA's main objectives for events are that 1) they are legal (insured + permited) 2) competitors are CKA members 3) windy - it really defeats the purpose to have a windless event.

Next weekend's event in Cocoa beach will be rename Tour Stop #2 and this this event is getting pushed back to weekend of either Feb 22/23 or March 1/2. It will then become Tour Stop #3 which is the final event before Regionals in Cocoa March 14-16.
