Slingshot + ASP Surf Fest

This is all kinds of rad, kitesurfing gets some serious audience action being given a 20 minute slot at the ASP World Qualifying Series in New South Wales at Mereweather Beach. That’s kind of a big deal!

“This February marked a significant step forward for kitesurfing, for the first time in the history of kiteboarding a partnership was forged between a kiteboarding brand and the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) to help showcase that potential on a large scale.

Thanks to Slingshot Australia, Kitesurfing was present as a demonstration sport at the SURF FEST event, an ASP 6 star World Qualifying Series (WQS) held in Newcastle Australia. This was significant step for Kite surfing because it gave the Surf Industry, pro surfers and the public an opportunity to see the potential of a kite to surf. A group of Slingshot Australia’s team riders along with Slingshot Elite team rider Patrick Rebstock, did a 20 min demonstration that took place between the open men’s second semi-final and final, a perfect 20 minute slot in front of thousands of surfing spectators at Merewether beach in New South Wales.”
