St. Peter-Ording, Germany, July 28 –What else can bring a tinge of sun and heat into the moderately cool and sometimes rain-soaked competition area of the German Tour stop? Three scorching races participated in by some of the best kiteboard riders in the world.
The second day of the 2009 PKRA Tour stop being held in the North Sea coast of Germany was greeted by wonderful weather conditions. The sun was out most of the day and sunny blue skies prevailed throughout the morning and afternoon with temperatures peaking at 22° Celsius.
The mandatory riders’ meeting was held outside the riders’ tent area at exactly 10:00 am while the supposedly 10:30 am first possible start was delayed by half an hour due to the unpredictable winds.
The day for the Wave Riders started at 12h00 with a skippers meeting and not much wind. The riders were kept on standby until conditions were evaluated again at 14h00.
