World Rankings updated

The world rankings for the various IKA disciplines have been updated after the first major events of the 2013 season, namely the PKRA freestyle/wave event in Dakhla and the African Course Racing Championships in Soma Bay.

In the freestyle world rankings, Alex Pastor (ESP) and Karolina Winkowska (POL) have taken the lead after their event victories in Dakhla, while in the course racing world rankings Steph Bridge (GBR) defended her lead with her Soma Bay success while Florian Gruber (GER) still sits in first after scoring a second place in Egypt.

No change in the waveriding and slalom world rankings so far with the leaders of the rankings sitting tight in their positions, awaiting the first KSP wave event in Guincho, Portugal and the first slalom event in Mexico.
