KPWT Canada 2009 - Day 3

The KPWT ACADIE KITEBOARD PRO started off on day 2 with 3 exhilarating course races!
Each race was run over two laps and a distance of 4.5km. The wind was at 12-14knots and blowing from the southeast.
The course was set out in a triangular shape and took the winner of each rider no longer than 22 minutes.

This morning (Day3) started with huge excitement after a good forecast for the day.
The Skippers meeting was held at 07h00 and the race director gave the green flag to start with the freestyle single elimination.
The wind was constant at 25-30knots and from a good southerly direction.

And what a day it was for Stefan Permien! He was in sublime form and looked at home in these conditions. He defeated the likes of Leander Vyvey (BEL, JN), Mickael Schitzhofer (AUS, JN), and Jesse Richman (HAW, CABRINHA), meeting Vincent Tiger (FRA, F-ONE) in the final!
The final was epic and the riders were getting great power and performing some smooth strong moves.

Tiger launched himself into a HUGE kiteloop, followed by a stylish front and back mobe. It just didn’t seem enough to defeat the man of the day whose array of tricks from back mobes to kiteloops and a stylish sbend-pass, was deserved of the freestyle singles title!

The women’s final was between the Wave Master World Champion, Kirsty Jones (UK, NORTH) and Kari Schibevaag (NOR, OZONE), who has now reached her second final in a row on the 2009 KPWT.
And congratulations to Kari Schibevaag for winning her first women’s freestyle single elimination on the KPWT. You are proving yourself to be a strong contender this year and we hope you keep enjoying the KPWT.
At 14h30 the race director started the double elimination to take advantage of the strong conditions. The results and further details will follow tomorrow.
