Which Kites have won the PKRA title?

Postby Alfarosi » Mon Dec 31, 2012 1:21 am

Hi Guys!

Does anybody knows which kites have won the PKRA title in all the history? I have curiosity to know it

This year I know that Youri Zoon rode Slingshot RPM and Karolina Winkowska rode Slingshot Fuel!

But the years before?

Thanks

Well, Hadlow won 5 times....so that's flexifoil
Vari won it a few times...so that's Cabrinha
Think Shinn won it once...can't remember the kite

Andy Yates won on Fuels. Kevin Langeree won using Naish Torches. Kites pre-Hadlow would be obsolete by today's standards.

Bruna won with a Hadlow Pro. I think Gisela won on Airush Generator, Razor and Slingshot Fuel

I thought it was the kiters talent that won the events.
It would seem that the kiters think so too as several of them have jumped to other brands since their victories

2010 Andy Yates (Slingshot Fuel)
2009 Kevin Langeree (Naish Torch)
2004-2005-2006-2007-2008 Aaron Hadlow (Flexifoil Hadlow Pro)

Female
2012 Karolina Winkowska (Slingshot Fuel)
2011 Gisela Pulido (Airush Razor)
2010 Gisela Pulido (Airush Generator)
2009 Bruna Kajiya (Flexifoil Hadlow Pro)

Gee and i was thinking it was about the rider that one. Most tricks these days dont have anything to do with the kite anymore.

Seems no relationship between winning PKRA and sales of kites
