Bryan Lake is the 2012 PKRA World Tour Racing Champion

Cabrinha News:

Bryan Lake is the 2012 PKRA World Tour Racing Champion

Lake takes 1St place on the PKRA World Tour Racing Circuit. From Mexico to
Germany, with podium finishes at nearly every stop, Bryan Lake (AKA Bernie)
weathered the dramatic Olympic whirlwind, and came out as the 2012 PKRA World Tour
Racing Champion.

Born and raised in San Diego, CA Bryan Lake started racing on the water at a young
age. With a solid background racing sailboats, he was recruited by the University of
Hawaii’s sailing program. He says “It was a good move for me! There was big waves,
good wind and we had a kick ass sailing team. We ripped up the college circuit and
won the nationals.”

As fate would have it his UH sailing coaches were kiting and gave him a shot at it one
day. He was instantly hooked. In 2004 he hit the Gorge games coming in 3rd and
graced the cover of Kiteboarding Magazine in 2006. Highly competitive in nature the
laid back surf scene wasn’t doing it for him. He had the need for speed, and pushing
the limits of high performance kite racing was right up his alley.

Bryan went back to his roots in San Diego to race kites, we recently saw him up against
the America’s Cup 45’s while they were training. Bryan’s latest focus is sailing in light
winds while assisting Cabrinha’s kite designer Pat Goodman in the development of the
latest race gear. The goal of launching in light wind (as little as 5 knots) to be the first
on the water with the fastest kite on the market is now in his grasp. Next up, Winning
the World Championship.
