Congratulations to all the competitors and thanks to Brad for an excellent event.

Special congrats go out to Sonja Fischli who won the KillaHz womens kiteloop prize of $350. All the women were throwing down for prize but only the most powered, sick and smooth kiteloop could take the money in the end.

Great weekend!

KillaHz http://www.1cps.net will have pictures from the contest up later this week.

Thanks Gabe for putting up the special prize for the best women's kiteloop and congratulations to Sonja and to ALL the women competitors. You women rip and in your own special way too, quite apart from the style of the guys. Well done and looking forward to more great moves on and over the water. Thanks again to KillaHz for tossing this great prize into the ring!

Just got the word ... George and the Video Gnomes have been hard at editing and have cooked up yet another great serving of kiteboarding videos hot off the grille at Kiteflix on the 2004 Islamorada Invitational!

Checkout:

http://www.kiteflix.com/

For some phenomenal footage of Andy Hurdman riding for Best doing some incredibly fluid aerial moves. The slowmo replay lets you appreciate the incredible ease with which Andy throws down these moves with.

and some strong wakestyle moves from the creator of the Invitational, Brad Lange.

and the wakestyle master himself, Shannon Best handle passing off with abandon.

More to come on this outstanding event with a ton of still and video images of lots of other riders, so stay tuned!
