Video: Blake Porter, kitesurfer

 Under-18 New Zealand kiteboarding champion Blake Porter (16) harnesses a strong northeasterly wind on Otago Harbour yesterday.

Blake, a Bayfield High School pupil, beat more than 30 kiteboarders for the title in Tauranga last weekend. He came fifth equal in a field of 50 in the open men's division.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
