Best Kiteboarding partnered up with Tramontana Grafixx for a summer contest where riders were able to design their  own graphics to be put on a brand new white Kahoona 9.5m! Best would like to thank all of the participants as they had an overwhelming selection to choose from with several amazing designs. The winning design will be showcased and presented on August 26 at the PKRA Kiteboarding World Tour in St. Peter-Ording, Germany.

1st PLACE;  Congratulations to Judith! Best really liked her design with the kite tricks and can’t wait to see on her new Kahoona 9.5m v4!

2ND PLACE: The “Most Innovative” design came from Jason who will be getting prizes from Triggernaut Sportsglasses and Schwerelosigkite. Jason even did an animated presentation of how he came up with the design at


3RD PLACE:  Tiago took third for the “Most Motivated” design. he will also be awarded prizes from Triggernaut Sportsglasses and Schwerelosigkite.

Best also created a new category, “Up and Coming” designer, to recognize 7-year-old Jan Luca who cannot wait to start kiteboarding but will need to wait until he gets a little bigger… Meanwhile he has fun with his trainer kite, riding his skateboard and waveboard or doing body drags with his dad.
