Lee Pasty Harvey News:1st Kitesurf BKSA Legend of the Bay

Written by Lee Pasty Harvey on . Posted in Riders News

Picture The weekend saw a new event from the BKSA teaming up with BSUPA- Legend of the Bay at Watergate Bay, Cornwall. Combined points from kitesurf wave comp and sup wave comp to give overall title of Legend of the Bay.
Saturday saw 20mph of Northerly wind giving crosshore conditions with a confused 2-4 ft wave. Using the 2013 Rebel 10m & Xsurf 5'10, I was happy to take the win for the kitesurfing with Danny Morrice (rrd) fresh of his 5th place at PKRA Dakhla in 2nd and local Dom Moore (Ocean Rodeo) in 3rd.

Sunday and we awoke  to light winds and a small clean wave at high tide. By the time we started at 9.30 the dropping tide and increasing sw wind had turned the surf to absolute dribble. Oh well needent had bothered practicing for 2 months especially as I had pro suppers in my heats with Ruebs winning my first heat & Lee winning my next heat before they went onto the final placing 2nd & 3rd with Alex winning.
Dom Moore had the luck of the draw with only other kitesurfers in his heat and grabbed the only 2 good waves to win and move straight to round 3 which with Neal Gent going out was enough to win the Legend of the Bay Title.
Big congrats for keeping the title in Cornwall ;)
The womens title went to Keira from Norfolk.

Well done to all and a great turn out with 24 kiters and 22 suppers. 
Big congrats for great organisation and judging from the combined efforts of BKSA & BSUPA. Was a lot of fun learning to ride one of the small sups.

Thanks to my sponsors - North, ION, Freeriders & Pasty Adventures
And big thanks to Pete from Westcountry Watersports for the loan of the SUP.

Next up is my event The Pasty Cup, round 1 of the British racing championship tour on the 25-26th May at Marazion.
