The Wave Nationals took place at Margaret River, WA and brought together some incredibly talented wave riders from all across Australia. The Main Break delivered incredible conditions, with a combination of wind, swell and sunshine, setting the scene for a great 4-day event on and off the water.

Wing Wave

KA is excited to grow the wave discipline with the addition of two extremely successful wing foiling events in NSW and QLD this season. We look forward to further expanding wing foiling wave events across the country as the sport grows and gains more popularity in Australia.

It was all round good vibes at the events with a lot of foil froth happening. Being the inaugural wave events in Australia, both the organisers and competitors alike were on a learning curve as to how the event would play out. We were thrilled to receive overwhelmingly positive feedback with a clear desire for more wing wave events around the country.

A big thank you to our key Wave Series event partner, Duotone, for not only providing contribution to the event, but also playing a key hand in helping organise the events.
