BKSA 2012 Event Dates Released

After another successful year last year the BKSA has announced the tour dates for the coming 2012 season. We’ve put them in our diary and if you live in the UK then so should you. In a tough climate the BKSA have worked hard to put on a full campaign for the season and it should be another great year for UK kitesurfing. Show your support by coming to watch, entering or even offering to help out, if you haven’t been to an event before then you should definitely get along to one this year and have a go at a competition.
