Olympic Format Trials for Kiteboarding

Postby radam » Tue Mar 27, 2012 4:18 pm

Here is some footage of the racing during the Olympic format trials over the past few days held in Santander, Spain, along with some shots of riding with Johnny Heineken and Damien Leroy off the spectacular Spanish coast:

There was a lot of great racing in different formats alongside olympic class sailing skiffs and multi-hulls, and excellent discussion each day on the ramifications of making kiteboarding an olympic sport.

Everyone who participated feels strongly about this opportunity and believes in the cause. After much discussion with riders from different countries, many believe bringing kiteboarding to the olympics would benefit many aspects of our sport, including protecting launches in countries where they are threatened and making it a more recognized sport.

Please pass the word and support the cause!
