Kahului, Hawaii – December 3, 2012: Unpredictable Kona Winds prevented a start of the Ho’okipa Kitesurf Pro again this morning. A solid swell forecast and improving wind direction promise contestable conditions as soon as tomorrow and holding strong for the remainder of the competition window.

KSP contest director Ian Ponting states: “It’s unusual for Maui to be windless for long periods of time. The forecast continues to look really promising for the end of the holding period. In the meantime Maui continues to offer amazing surf and hopefully the competitors are still functional in both body and equipment when the real action starts.”

With an outside chance of the trade winds starting to kick in tomorrow, contest officials will reconvene tomorrow morning to assess conditions for a first possible start. Stay tuned for a first possible start and watch the call live on www.kspworldtour.com/live at 9am tomorrow morning.

The Ho’okipa Kite Surf Pro is supported by the County Of Maui, Best Kiteboarding, Cabrinha Kites, Naish Kites, North Kiteboarding, Maui Kitesurfing Community, Eternal Riders, Second Wind, NeilPryde Maui, Maui Beach Hotel, Mana Foods, Whole Foods Maui, Pacific Millworks, Mama’s Fish House and KSP Tour Outfitter ION.
