KR Club – Kite Camp Weekend
November 23/24 – TBC
January 11/12 – Phillip Island
February 1/2 – Sandy Point
We’ll be meeting on Saturday at 7:00-7:30am at the Kite Republic School on St Kilda West Beach and start driving to our camping spot a few minutes later (Wind forecast dependant). We will be back in Melbourne on Sunday night, usually after 8pm.
WHAT IS A KITE CAMP WEEKEND?
Depending on the forecast we’ll be setting out to the place most likely to produce great winds for the weekend, if there is no wind we will have backups and possibly a little surfing or SUPing might be in order, as well as this we’ll organize a lunch and dinner for everyone.
This is a social weekend trip aimed at all levels of kiter, the only requirement is that you have your own gear; kite, board, harness, leash and that you have had 3 lessons (ie. at a board starting level).
As we have lots of interest in these awesome weekends, they will be limited to the first 18 people as we have allocated 3 instructors for the day.
AM I GOOD ENOUGH & WHO ARE WE STUCK WITH?
Firstly, provided you have had 3 lessons then YES, you are good enough! For the beginners, Kite Republic Instructors will be there for the day ready to help out, for the intermediate and advanced riders not only will there be instructors but some of Victoria’s highest level riders coming along to offer advice and push you to your limits!
We will be carpooling, this is a great way to socialize and meet other kiters on the way. We suggest you give your driver $20 to cover their costs. Carpooling will be sorted on the day before. If we don’t need your car there’s free parking across the road from the beach and in front of Kite Republic School.
Cost of the weekend will be $289 to cover instructors, accommodation and food (1xBreakfast, 2xLunch and 1xDinner).
Can’t wait to get everyone out there, going to be an awesome weekend!
