Ozone News:Narapichit “Yo” Pudla - KTA Cook Islands Aitutaki 2013 1st Freestyle Slalom Race

Written by Ozone on . Posted in Industry News

Is it real? Where I am now? Wake up wake up Yo!!!!! My friend woke me up in the air plane, when I opened my eyes I saw a green blue ocean and big lagoon with many islands around from the window side, and I realised Im now landing soon at Aitutaki Island in the South Pacific Ocean.

It was my first time in paradise Cook island for the KTA 2013. I know it is not only competition here but should be the most awesome holiday trip with kiteboarding friends. I met many good local people on the way and we took a boat to one of the best kite spots they call honeymoon island. This is a sand island with coconut trees in the middle and sea birds. A big lagoon and clear blue water and super flat makes everyone happy with freestyle sessions. Then grab some beers sit on the beach for the evening sunset.

The event including kiteboarding freestyle, slalom race, SUP race and canoe in four days. Start by freestyle judge by KTA team with unhooked and old school tricks for the spectators. The wind speed was 12-16 knots, I used my Ozone Edge 15m and 13m to compete with good local riders, New Zealand riders and went to the final heat with the best rider from Tahiti.

I did many tricks like BJ3, KGB, Slim, Back Mobe, Front 4th spin, table top, etc. This was very  close heat but enough for me to win in freestyle. We then continued with slalom race with almost 28 riders on the start line. I finished 1,1,4 so I also won slalom race, and made my points to win overall international class too.

For the last day there was no wind so we decided to do snorkeling and one foot island trip. So much fun from big party with all the riders and local people at night. This the best trip ever I got from the competition in Cook island. The word I learn from there is “Manna”… “The power of spirit you trust in the island!”
