I wonder if they will just do it informally opposite Mystic House along Bloubergstrand, or try to do it at the central Kite Beach opposite the KFC where the KOTA was held last year and will this year. Local Big Air event for South African Kitesurfing Association has window from tomorrow to 13Jan - http://www.saka.co.za/events/

We might get a little SEaster lat tomorrow afternoon, but I hope they hold off till Saturday when the forecast looks much better, albeit several days out so it could change.

since they have a 10 days waiting period I am sure they will use the best day for it.

I hope they make a nice video of the action...keen on seeing what the ladies are pulling !

Well, today would have worked after all if they do not have too many entrants. The SEaster filled in around 3PM and built till sunset. I was fully powered on a 7m Pivot by sunset. Kevin Langaree and Nick Jacobsen were out having fun, on 9m of course.

It would be nice if someone involved with this, or someone who has signed up for it, would post here updates on the time and place. If this Saturday, I'd enjoy watching some of it in a break between sessions.
