The 2013 PKRA season will be one of the most exciting in recent years. With over thirteen stops and three disciplines being represented; freestyle, wave and slalom there will be no shortage of action on this year's tour.
Today, on the biggest day of the year, the 2012 Freestyle World Champion was decided, and what an incredible day it was. In fact, no one could have anticipated how close the final results would actually be – and this day went down in history, providing some of the most epic final battles ever witnessed.
Each competitor retained high expectations for this closing day in such an enchanting place; however, the wind gods turned out to have different plans. Hanging around the event site checking emails, playing games, and socializing, the riders paid close attention to the official notice board and any sign of a greater breeze.
The fourth day at the Fuerteventura World Cup offered up a myriad of exciting heats and nail-biting action as the top competitors of this competition so far battled it out on the water for the ultimate title of world champion.
Measuring around 11-25 knots, the conditions proved challenging, yet well-suited to the continuation and completion of both disciplines – allowing for the crowning of the official champions at the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup.
The last day of the Burn Kiteboard World Tour played out exactly as a final day should. The culmination of the entire event erupted in anticipation and excitement, as racers and freestyle competitors arrived at Burc Beach one last time, ready to give it their all.
The final day of the Copa Mundial de Kitesurf Adicora turned out to be a relaxed and calm day for many, as the competition turned up one last time for some racing action and the final awards ceremony. With freestyle double eliminations completed, riders arrived ready to carry out a few more races before ending the competition for good.
The first day of the Copa Mundial de Kitesurf Adicora offered up a full morning and afternoon of both freestyle and racing action complete with local talent, the best riders in the world, and a special variety of South American flavor.
Keeping confident with an optimistic mindset and the slight chance of early wind, competitors arrived at 8am to be briefed on the plan for the day. This plan turned out to be quite similar to the days prior – wait for the wind to increase.
The final day played out somewhat as expected with considerably less wind than the previous days. Meeting at 10am, the racers arrived to a calm beach and a more serene atmosphere, with the hopes that the wind would shift and increase enough to hold racing or the remainder of the freestyle competition.
