CKA West Coast Regional Championships

CKA West Coast Regional Championships

****************************************************************** Event Wrap up

Congratulations to all the riders and schools who competed in the West Coast Regional Championship yesterday. We had a great event and lucked out with a strong sea breeze to pull off both a freestyle and surf style division. Cal Poly was the big winner taking top honors on the podium and a new Liquid Force Focus 134 for being top school. CKA hopes to keep building up the West Coast with more college riders, alumni and at least one female at the next event.

Thank you to all the participants, Liquid Force, Best, Dakine, The Kiteboarder Magazine, judges and spectators who came out. A special thanks to James Ropner, Marina Chang and Mikey Benaron who were pivotal for this successful event.

CKA 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. When: Easter Weekend April 18-21 Top riders will be invited to Nationals the summer to square off the best East coast riders!
