Today we announce the launch of our Scholarship campaign on StartSomeGood. Funds will be used predominantly to help with competitions on the West coast and for getting riders to Nationals. Any additional funds will be used to help pay for kiter's college tuition fees! Keep your eye out for upgrades on the Rewards section from our sponsors. Thanks in particular to Alex Fox for supporting the campaign and everyone else who made the video possible! We have 7 days to receive 3 pledges so you can help us by sharing the link and making a donation.

Today we nearly reached 20% of our Tipping Point. With less that 1 week left, we need your help more than ever! Check out the lesson packages we have to offer - beginner through to advanced - and think about whether you want to improve your ride or for someone you know!

hi sijandy

I can accept that we could be responsible for giving the public perception that college kiters are 'cruising' as you put it. However it's important to note that we have created this product brand which helps us to work with our sponsors for a greater good. Similarly to the rest of kiteboarding, the majority of our kiters are very different to what we see advertised in media.

The CKA is here to support college riders at both an academic and competitive level. We are a non-profit 501-c(3) which means we rely on donations each year to each these goals. Don't you think that students should invest their time in their career instead of working at a low wage? There is a strong link between kiting and entrepreneurship and we believe it is our job to foster this relationship.

We welcome any advice on how we could do better. We only have 3 days left. Please consider helping out.
