Thanks for the links guys. I was trying that link the other day but it was not working yet. Getting updates in Kiteboarding needs to happen in a better/ faster way! For instance if there is no wind on the first day just post something on the first day saying there is no wind. There are many interested people around the world waiting for these updates. I have guys from Naish calling me asking for news because they cannot find anything on the internet.
Anyway enough ranting! I just wanted to see how Damien Leroy is doing with my new 2012 CR board and the new slalom board I made for him.
The update from Damo is that there is very light winds and they are riding their course boards with 16m for him and 18m for Bruno Sroka and Brian Lake. Damo has not ridden the slalom board yet. It doesn't really beat the CR board until you are lit with a 13m or smaller but it jibes unreal.
I do not know what happened today, Saturday, yet. They are supposed to have some better winds.
Here is a link on IKA nowhttp://www.internationalkiteboarding.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5011:slalom-world-championships-day-2&catid=3:event-news&Itemid=99
Hopefully it will be updated for todays results soon after the racing ends.
Ronnie you are right that this might have a bigger appeal to most kiteboarders in the future. It is easier to go downwind for sure and more fun for spectators . The downwind slalom in Los Barilles last January was really fun to watch! You could even ride a twin tip and do well at that slalom event.
