Oswald Smith stands on all 3 podiums
This past weekend Airush International and South African 15 year old, Oswald Smith, jumps on the podium for all 3 disciplines!
Race (1st Place), Freestyle (1st Place) and Wave (2nd Place) all done in a 4 day span with optimal conditions for all. The SAKT (South African Kite Tour) stopped one of the premium kite destinations in the country, Langebaan.
Oswald was using a prototype raceboard (not shown) and Varial X Race kites.
Oswald is known by all as a fierce competitor but also a youth with an immense amount of talent and style. In each discipline there were many individual competitors that practice strictly on their speciality. An average kite day for Ozzie is a brief race training, followed by an intense freestyle session and as the sun goes down he finishes with a play in the waves.
South Africa is blessed with endless amounts of variety in conditions which allows this type of tour to include such a range of disciplines. This is why Airush RnD calls Cape Town home.
