First Freestyle round completed at KPWT Tarifa

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The first rounds of the men’s single elimination started off competition day 2. The heats began at 14h15 and continued up until 16h00 with the first round for men completed.



At 16h30 the HAVAIANAS board off competition was held! The huge flip-flops/ boards were dragged into the water and attempts were made to pull off the best maneuver possible.
Abel Lago (SPA RRD), Jose Luengo (SPA, LIQUID FORCE), Alvaro Onieva (SPA, BEST) and Antoine Auriol (FRA, KITELOOSE) participated in the men’s competition. With the final between the two Spanish riders, Alvaro and Abel doing their absolute best with the heavy boards in front of an excitable crowd!
It was quite the spectacle and brought thousands down to the beach.
Alvaro managed to do just enough to win the final heat against Abel and the 900euro prize money on offer!

For the women, Kari Schibevaag (NOR, OZONE), Gisela Pulido (SPA, MOVISTAR), Fabienne D'Ortoli(FRA, NAISH) and Ania Grezlinska (POL, NORTH) took part in this unique event. Gisela handled the heavy board as best she could and managed to take the final heat and the 600euro prize money on offer!
Thank you to HAVAIANAS for their support and this “BOARD OFF” competition.

The wind had dropped off by 18h00 and an attempt was made to run the women’s first elimination rounds. Unfortunately there was not enough wind and after heat one the day was called off. What a fun and unique day on the KPWT Movistar Kite Pro Tarifa 2009!
