NAISH TORCH WINS HANG TIME CONTEST AT 5th STOP OF PKRA WORLD TOUR!
In the second discipline of the competition, Naish International Team Riders Kevin Langeree (PKRA freestyle world-#2) and Rui Meira battled it out for the victory in the Hang Time event in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands.
Kevin, who was 3rd in the freestyle event the day before, won the contest on a Naish Torch 10m kite with a best jump of 7.48 seconds. Rui came is 2nd with a best jump of 7.49 seconds, but was second due to Kevin having more jumps for a longer time than Rui.
Kevin and Rui, both on Torches, bested the rest of the filed, bow and c-shape kite alike, proving that the Torch is the ultimate combination of ease, performance, and jumping ability.
Jalou Langeree was 2nd in the women's hang time with a Naish Torch as well.
