Day 5 - PKRA - Gard Kitesurf World Cup 2007
After a fun-filled, action-packed fourth day, the Gard Kitesurf World Cup
2007 competition once again came to a grinding halt coming into its fifth day of event. Today, the sun was up which provided a mild weather condition maintaining a 19 to 20 degrees Celsius of temperature, the only thing missing was the wind.
As usual, most of the riders were seen hanging out at the riders lounge with their laptops updating their personal websites or checking out the latest photos and videos of the PKRA World Cup on the internet. The rest were seen with their books and other reading materials and playing foosball while the others took time out to bask in the sun. Several competitors pulled out their equipment to pump out and let it dry out from yesterdayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s soaking day.
The competition was called off at 16:00h exactly before a late day thunderstorm rolled in. After the thunderstorm, there was a noticeable temperature drop, setting a cool Wednesday evening. The disc jockey from N-JOY still provided some lively music, although there were only a couple of people out on the beach because of the wet conditions. The wind forecast for tomorrow is still bleak as it will probably be another no-wind event with overcast skies in the morning to late afternoon but this weekend should provide good wind for a grand finale. The mandatory skippers meeting is set for 10:00am tomorrow with first possible start of 10:30am.
Be sure to catch the live free concert at the beach on Friday, 19:00h with three bands performing powered by N-JOY THE BEACH party series, plus the Breakdance Show and Battle on Saturday starting at 12:00pm. Keep tuning in to http://www.youtube.com/extremeelementstv
