  The wind was a steady 15 knots and riders were riding their 11 and 13 meter kites.  Once again all the favorites advanced to the final.  Adam Koch came back strong and overtook Kerneur to move into second.  Lake stayed in front and won his fifth consecutive race.The final race of the event was set up with two half feet semifinals and an eight-man final.  All the competitors were within meters of the start line when the green flag went up and were already going full speed to the first Mark.  Julien Kernuer went on to win his first race followed by Adam Withington who got a second place finish.

\"Slalom is a relax approach to competitive racing, going full speed, touching kites and being fair play.After six races Brian was first, Julien was second and Adam Whitington was third.

  Arroyo was still extremely consistenet and won the last race giving her a scond overall.Alex pastor and Kevin Langeree came out before the closing ceremony to put on the freestyle exhibition. There were both landing technical handle passes like the back mobe’s and flat 3’s, while also doing some old-school moves.“It is great to show the public the latest moves and big air tricks that are really fun to do” -Kevin Langeree

  It was a great ceremony on the beach with all the riders coming to cheer on winners and for the winners to claim their trophies and prizes.
