Ho'okipa, Maui; Robby Naish, Pete Cabrinha; KSP World Champs

Postby Detlef » Tue Dec 24, 2013 11:30 am

Ho'okipa, Maui, Hawaii / with Robby Naish, Pete Cabrinha and the KSP World Championship:

This year in November we have not been in Brazil, but we did once again (after more than 17 years) the long trip from Europe to Hawaii.
In Ho'okipa, where normally kitesurfing is not permitted, we have witnessed the KSP Kite Surf World Championship.
As part of the program the kite legends Robby Naish, Pete Cabrinha and Flash Austin were on the water, too.
The new world champions are Keahi de Aboitiz and Moona Whyte, and they are also a nice couple:

Kai Lenny and Jalou Langeree (sister of Kevin) were second.
The guys from the Cape Verde Islands (Airton Cozzolino and Mitu Monteiro) took places 4 and 5:

I've made a little video from the event:

Some great rides but a bit repetitive... were they scoring by counting how many bottom turns?

I bet more slack lines with wave-power only riding would be even better.

p.s. Robby still rips!
