ONE OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS OF THE SOUTH COAST - THE ROARING NOR-EAST WINDS OF JERVIS BAY.

Every afternoon the hectic winds rip through Point Perpendicular and across Jervis Bay. This marine sanctuary home to pods of dolphins and plentiful marine life make this scenic location a must for any kiteboarder. 

Added to a jam packed schedule of events is the big air contest, where riders will be judged on technical ability as well as height. State of the art measuring devices will be fitted to all competitors to ensure accuracy of what will be a truly epic event.

Have you got what it takes to go the highest over Jervis Bay?
