Kahului, Hawaii – November 28, 2012: The world’s top kitesurfers have arrived on Maui for the 4th and final World Tour stop of the 2012 KSP season. The Ho’okipa Kite Surf Pro marks the first ever kite surf world tour event on US soil and promises to deliver world class action in one of the sport’s premier locations.

The official rider’s registration and opening party takes place tonight from 6pm to 9pm at Second Wind kitesurf shop in Kahului. Tomorrow marks the first possible competition day, kicking off at 9am with a traditional Hawaiian ceremony and a very special visit from Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa at Ho’okipa Beach Park. All watermen and women on Maui are invited to join this very special celebration.

The KSP world title race remains too close to call heading into the final event at Ho’okipa Beach, Maui. Hometown favorite and current men’s points leader Patri Mclaughlin (HI, North) aims to snatch his first ever world title at home on Maui with Airton Cozzolino (ITA, North) and Sebeastian Ribeiro (BRA) within very close striking distance. The female race also remains incredibly tight between front-runner Jalou Langeree (NED, Naish), Ninja Bichler (GER, North) and Ines Correia (POR, RRD).

Join at the beach or tune in to www.kspworldtour.com/live to watch all the action live as it unfolds for the KSP World Championship Tour Finals at Ho’okipa Beach in Maui, HI from Nov. 29 – Dec. 8. You can also catch up with all the KSP Tour Riders during the following evening functions.
