Introducing the WSA WESTERN PROVINCE RACING SERIES

The three clubs involved have extended a warm welcome to this initiative and we are hoping for a great season of racing .
Only one date on each weekend will be used for the race day and will be decided during the week before this increases our chances of a good day.

Chris and Robbie on their Kona's on Langebaan lagoon. This is serious fun and we tend to forget what riding big long boars is all about. The Kona is a really smooth ride and it Gybes way better than any slalom board I have ridden. Not the fastest board around yet it is a pleasure to ride and for long distances it really does not make me nearly as tired as riding a slalom board. Generally I can hold a meter square bigger than on a small board. For some reason it's the only board I ride that does not make me think about what is lurking deep beneath me.
