Looking for a hotel during the contest? Look no further.
The Shorebreak Hotel has offered KSUSA a group rate of $179 per night, plus taxes. (Their rooms go for $200 and up normally.)
And, if you book your reservation through the group rate prior to January 2, 2013, you are eligible to be included in a raffle for a room upgrade to a Suite at the group rate with a VIP Welcome Amenity delivered to your room prior to arrival (a Bottle or White or Red Wine with a Cheese Platter).
The raffle winner will be announced prior to the contest.

The Shorebreak Hotel is just steps away from the contest venue and Sandy’s. There are already several of us who are staying there. :wink:
Visit http://www.shorebreakhotel.com to see more about the hotel.

Below is the link to book your room directly.
Be sure to include KSUSA as the “promo code.”
https://booking.ihotelier.com/istay/istay.jsp?groupID=903318&hotelID=15456

If you choose to speak to a person, you can call 1-877-744-1117, and again mention KSUSA to take advantage of the group rate.

Now, I know you can search Priceline, Expedia, Hotels.com, etc and try to get a better rate.
If you do find a better rate online (take it... as it is more money you could spend on contest raffle tickets!!! :lol: :lol: ),
all I ask is that you let me know you’ve booked your room so KSUSA will get the credits.

Please email me (amanda@ksusa.org) or call me at 949-436-0427 and let me know.

Super excited to see everyone! It will be another wonderful event!
And, it is the 10th Anniversary… sure to be spectacular.

Amanda


PS: The hotel prices listed on the contest page have not been updated for quite some time...

Time is running out

Last year we had to close the contest registration early because all of the Open spots were filled. For the first time ever, there were no cancellations or no-shows, so we were unable to allow alternates into the Open. Get your entries in early so you don't miss out. The contest will fill again this year.

This was our busiest week so far for registration. We're quickly approaching half full in the Open. The remaining spots will not last long as the end of the year rush comes in.

We've officially made to the half full mark with 32 entries in the open. The entries are coming in faster, so we may fill the contest before the registration deadline. Don't wait too long and miss out.

This year we are celebrating the 10th year of KSUSA hosted kneeboard surfing contests. We hope that all past Open finalists will there to participate in the contest and help celebrate the 10 years of history that you helped create.

Kneeboarding Officially “Thriving”

10th Annual Kneeboard Surfing Titles to be Held at Huntington Beach Pier Jan. 18 and 19

Huntington Beach, CA (December 26, 2012) – KSUSA is proud to announce the 2013 Kneeboard Surfing Titles and Kneeboard Festival will return to Huntington Beach, CA, January 18 and 19. This event celebrates the 10th year of continuous KSUSA sponsored kneeboard surfing competition, including nine U.S. Titles and one World Titles event.

One of the premier Kneeboarding events in the world, the KSUSA Kneeboard Surfing Titles attracts an international field with some of the sport’s top competitors. Kneeboarders will face off on the south side of the pier – competing for titles and a chance to represent the U.S. at the World Kneeboard Titles to be held in Tahiti in July 2013.

In addition, Sandy’s Beach Grill will host an official event gathering Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 6 p.m.

“Entering 2013, Kneeboarding is officially thriving here in the U.S.,” said Don Harris, KSUSA President. “In addition to our annual KSUSA Titles, there’s a Kneeboarding circuit on the NSSA and the upcoming 2013 World Titles. The sport is riding a high we haven’t seen in more than 30 years, maybe ever.”

In addition to pushing performance levels, Harris says the additional contests provide valuable exposure for the sport which he hopes will translate into interest from younger competitors. A group of talented young U.S. Kneeboarders are expected to make their presence known at the 2013 titles, including Chris Linn, Shayne Dimick and defending KSUSA Junior Champion Evan Odom.

Standing in the way of Kneeboarding’s “next generation” are several battle-tested champions including Cardiff’s Bill Lerner, San Diego’s Jack, Beresford, HB’s Tom Backer and San Diego’s Chris Beresford who dominated the 2012 final in clean head-high conditions.

In the Women’s division Cathy Yturralde is expected to defend a hard-fought 2012 title. The event will conclude Saturday afternoon with a highly entertaining team competition featuring an annual showdown between HB Kneeboarders and those from other regions. To enter the contest visit: www.ksusa.org.

The 2013 Kneeboard Surfing U.S.A. Titles is free and open to the public. Heats will begin each day at 7 a.m. weather and waves permitting.

Sponsors of the Kneeboard Surfing U.S. Championships include: Aleeda Wetsuits, Aqua Tech Waterjet, Balestar Designs, Blast Surf Designs, Block Surf, Board Raxx, Bolsa Clothing, Brand Id, Clear Water Glassing, Cove Deck Padz, Dafin, DaKine, Electric, FCS, Flashpoint Surfing, Fourth Gear Flyer Surfmats, Freeline Design, The Froghouse Surf Shop, Futures Fins, Kneelo Nation, Legless.tv, Marko Foam Blanks, Joel Mayer Surf Photography, McConnell Surfboards, Midnight Products Boardbags, Miller’s Family Barber, NEE PRO Kneeboards, Parkes Australia, Primo Beer, Pure Glass, Romanosky Kneeboards, Riviera Longboards, S.S.
