So Its the first BKSA event of the year coming up this weekend in Barrow, South lake district! The wind does not look promising at the minute due to all this damn nice weather… but lets see what happens, maybe a sea breeze!
Looking forward to catching up with people from last season as well as all the crew that I was with at Beach Break Live student festival & kite comp a couple of weeks ago. Pretty awesome long weekend all round, props to BBL Benoit, the ska crew for organising another good kite event and Mr Barrett on the win!
I hadn’t kited in a while so was great to session Watergate bay and Perranporth with mates from all around the country and have some huuwgge nights out.
It sounds like there should be a good assortment of riders this weekend (in the pro mens at least), with Juniors moving up (George Dufty & Jordan Hurst), old masters returning aka Robin Snuggs & Mark Connoly, fresh from a season Morgan Tinsley and the usual suspects Dan Sweeney, Richy Flindal, Sam Bull, maybe Jack Daykin & Olly Bridge and any other wildcards. Ali and James Boulding on the case with judging apparently. So I guess I should get some boots on and grab some downwind underpowered backrolls…
Hopefully Ive kept hold of my tricks after ‘experiencing’ my first full winter in the UK for a good few years… Had a few cable wakeboard sessions recently so that’s been good for board skills, have to transfer some more kite tricks soon!!
Still some more footage to sort through so expect a quick paced freestyle video out soon
