KR Club – Kite & Wing Ride Day
Oct 29th 2022 / Jan 14th 2023 / Mar 18th 2023
We’ll be meeting around 8 am at the Kite Republic School on St Kilda West Beach with the weather forecast all sorted and ready to go by 8:15 am.
WHAT IS A RIDE DAY?
Depending on the forecast we’ll be setting out to the place most likely to produce great winds for the day, if there is no wind we will have backups and possibly a little surfing or SUPping might be in order, as well as this we’ll organize a BBQ lunch for everyone.
This is a social trip aimed at all levels of kite & wing foiler (see ‘Am I good enough’ below for minimum requirements), the only other requirement is that you have all your own gear; kite or wing setup (or hire it for the day).
It’s all about fun, filling those gaps in your knowledge, meeting others equally as addicted as yourself and helping you to improve in a confidence inspiring way.
As we have lots of interest in these days it 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 kiters have had 3 lessons (basic boardstart level) & wing foilers can manage their wing and return to shore on their knees 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. 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 day will be $130 to cover staffing and BBQ.
Can’t wait to get everyone out there, going to be an awesome day!
