The Freestyle Nationals are set to kick off at Semaphore Beach in Adelaide, South Australia from the 24th to the 27th January 2020. It will be the first time the Freestyle Nationals have taken place in SA and we are excited to invite riders from across Australia to a great freestyle location on the metro beaches of Adelaide. It will be a 4-day action packed long weekend, with the best freestyle kiteboarding in the country taking place. This year the event organisers are also pleased to introduce the RIDE Social Membership, to engage with the broader kiting community with a host of fun, social, more relaxed events which are suitable for kiters of all levels. The event boasts a huge $5,000+ prize pool, with live commentary and tunes cranking all weekend, the Surf Club will be open for food and drinks most of the weekend, photographers and videographer will be on site to capture all the action and with a host of fun events such as expressions sessions, downwinders and evening dinners there really is something for everyone! There is even a carnival down at Semaphore for the kiddies that includes rides, water slides, food trucks and fire works on Australia Day.
