No wind at Day one of KPWT France

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Day one on the KPWT Dunkerque Kitesurf Pro 2009 and the wind just didn’t reach the required speed to start the competition. This did not stop anyone from enjoying the activities arranged on the promenade.


There was a wind tunnel to challenge your strength and fight the strong wind machine, from one end to the other.
There was a flying box, forcing a strong current of air from below, whilst attached either side to elastics and wearing a jumpsuit. It really was a super attraction and people queued for hours to get their chance to fly!

The clouds lifted in the afternoon, but unfortunately for the kitesurfers, the wind didn’t.
Coca Cola had built a beach bar on the promenade and kept everyone refreshed as the temperature increased throughout the day. Out came the paddle-boards, the bathers and the shoppers all eager enjoy the KPWT Dunkerque Kitesurf Pro 2009!

The race director made the call at 18h00 to call the day off and wait for the forecasted wind tomorrow to start the competition. Skippers meeting will be at 09h00 and lets hope to see some action!
