Are you interested in Kiteboard Racing?

Kiteboarding is likely to us a course racing format for the 2016 Olympics

Everybody who has an interest in kiteboard racing is invited to YNZ’s offices on 16th May at 7pm for a discussion around the implementation of Kiteboard racing in NZ.

As you are mostly all aware the Kiteboard has been given the vote to be included in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. This is a decision that has come as a bit of a surprise and we need to get organised in NZ as soon as possible.

Whilst this decision has presented a few challenges it also provides a great opportunity to organise racing across New Zealand from a grass roots level through to Olympic campaigners.

YNZ is committed to help lead this transition and ensure we get kiteboard racing off the ground in the best way possible. We would like to consult with the kiting community that is interested in racing and start making some headway.

Whether you are a kiteboarder (or a wannabe), windsurfer, retailer, coach or parent it would be valuable to have your input if you see yourself being involved in the development of the sport of Kiteboard racing in NZ.
