2017 US Kneeboard Titles and Festival

The 2017 US Kneeboard Titles and Festival will return to Oceanside, CA for the first time since 2008. This event will celebrate the 14th year of Kneeboard Surfing USA sponsored kneeboard surfing competition, including 11 US Titles and one World Titles event. The Kneeboard Surfing USA Titles will be held on Friday March 10th, 2017. The last US Kneeboard Titles were held in Huntington Beach and were an overwhelming success.

KSUSA will partner once again with WSA to bring the contest back to Oceanside. WSA’s considerable experience organizing and running surf contests will help to ensure this event will be a success.

The 2017 US Kneeboard Titles will serve as the primary US qualifying event for the 2017 World Titles in Spain. Results will be used to rank US competitors for seeding into the World Titles.

Looking forward to having the US Titles in Oceanside this March. It's going to be great getting together and seeing everyone again and I'm sure the surfing's going to be great! We have some great sponsors on board and we're working to secure others so please keep checking back for updates. As mentioned in the Announcement, "support those who support our sport!"

The contest will be at the harbor jetty.
That's your neighborhood. Hope you can make it.
Evening festivities, Thursday and Friday, will be at Dominic’s Italian Restaurant on the harbor.

I am totally stoked -- I should be able to coincide my annual US trip/parental visit with this Oceanside event
In my past US trips the event never coincided with my home travel plans

I will be coming in all the way from Italy early March and I look forward to relaxing on the beach with my Italian girlfriend and observing riders with lots more experience and maybe learn something from y'all

I will try and participate also at the Cantabria Spain world event -- 24 hr drive from Italy--- and cheering the Red White and Blue team members I might meet at Oceanside.

The icing on my cake will be If I get lucky enough to do a summer session at the first of its kind Kneeboard Summer camp set up in SOMO Spain by a former Spanish Champ-- might learn more there as well
Hey 2017 might be a totally Kneelo event for me-- pray for surf

Sorry folks had to share my enthusiasm for this-- I've been waiting a long "ars" time to see, what are considered rare and far in-between, Kneeboard competitions events :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :D :D 8) 8) --
dave
it's all about the ride

Wow Dave, awesome! We share your stoke for sure and hope that the US Titles greets you with warm weather and quality surf. People will be arriving on Thursday and surfing out at the Harbor and then we have pre-contest gathering Thursday night at Dominic's, which is right there at the Harbor. You'll be able to check your heat time as the draw will be posted. T-shirts will also be distributed to those who preordered. We'll have a very limited supply of extras available at Dominic's.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Time is running out. We are just six weeks away from the upcoming 2017 KSUSA US Kneeboard Titles and Festival to be held on Friday, March 10, 2017 at Oceanside Harbor. Over half of the spots in the Open Division are already full and we have many commitments from competitors to enter, so we are expecting a full event. Registration will close at the end of February, or sooner if filled. Lock your registration in today.

We need more competitors for the Women's and Junior Divisions. If you know any women or younger kneeboarders, encourage them to sign up.

Please go to the KSUSA Contests article to view the Contest Page that has additional information. Planning for the Titles has been underway for many months and KSUSA is confident that the camaraderie and competition will be outstanding. We are thankful for the generous support of our outstanding Sponsors, many of whom have supported KSUSA from the beginning.

Enthusiasm is high for the 2017 US Titles which will serve as the main qualifier for ranking the US Team that will be participating in the 2017 Kneeboard Surfing World Titles to be held in late September in Somo, Spain.

We are thankful for your past participation and are hopeful that you will be able to join us in Oceanside this March! Whether competing or not, all friends and family of the kneeboard community are welcome to attend the contest and the evening events on Thursday and Friday. We will have fundraiser auction and raffle stocked with the generous donations from our sponsors.

The KSUSA organization and KSUSA events are only possible because of the generous donations from our sponsors, contributions from individuals in the kneeboard community, and the hard work of our volunteers. Visit the KSUSA Contest Page for a complete list of this year's sponsors.


Warm regards,
