LOCATION - mooloolaba
Parking is going to be extremely difficult for the event as it is school holidays and most of Mooloolaba street has 4Hr parking limits. We suggest you drop off gear near briefing tree, and entry to beach - where we will hopefully will have volunteers to help you with your gear and park your car for the Flat rate of $5 a day at ParkNGo Mooloolaba Central
Competitors can register to compete in the following classes:
Kite Foil - Elite - flying race kites and race foils these athletes will be reaching speeds of 70km/hr on the open ocean and hoping to make all their tacks and gybes seamlessly to complete the race with no-one in front. You will need to register on the first day, your gear you want to use.
Formula X - Flying inflatable "tube" kites and free-ride foils these athletes will be doing thier best to avoid spectator friendly wipeouts at high speed whilst battling the ocean conditions. Getting around the course dry may be a challenge but its great fun. No need to register any gear.
Wing Foil Race - The slow coaches of the event are also the most refined craft. Their connection to the wind and ocean is the greater than any other sail craft. Every subtle flicker of energy change, whether its in the air or water, is felt directly and immediately through their arms or legs. Wing Racing is new, its the feeder class for elite kite racing and the larger fleet racing will be tight and exciting to watch.
You will need to register two wings, one foil and one board. That is all the equipment you are allowed to use during the event (including expression session and wave session).
Wing Foil Wave/Expression - Loyal to the foil these athletes will be riding the unrideable lumps of the ocean; Breaching from the water to glide by the wind, carving the biggest cut backs you've ever seen at high speed.
TEST YOURS SKILLS ONLY FOR THE WINGERS
