KPWT Dunkerque Day 4

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Day 4 started with little wind, but started to pick up around 15h00. The race director made an official announcement at 16h00 to run the freestyle discipline and to finish the single elimination.
Wind had increased and was reaching 18 knots South West. The race director ran 7minute heats, with 3minute intermissions.


The first few heats saw Victor Hays (FRA, CABRINHA) against another French rider, Julien Kerneur (FRA, TAKOON) who both looked in good form. Julien held strong and landed a smooth slim chance, but after seeing a huge back mobe from Victor, it looked certain that he would progress.

A surprise in the early rounds was the ejection of the Dominican rider, Jose Corniel (FH KITEBOARDING) by Christophe Tak (BEL, LIQUID FORCE). He went on to face Jesse Richman in the second round.

The heat of the day for me however was called off just as it was getting good. Jesse Richman (HAW, CABRINHA) faced Christophe Tak (BEL, LIQUID FORCE). Jesse’s move of the heat was a perfect back mobe, but Christophe was looking so good. He made a blind judge 3 look easy, followed by KGB Grab and a sick little mobe.

I can’t wait to see the heat tomorrow! The day was called off at 19h20 as the wind dropped below 10 knots and it was not easy for the riders to get the power they need to show off their tricks!
