PKRA News:Registration at the Pingtan Kiteboarding World Cup

All the top PKRA riders have arrived in Pingtan, China for the 8th freestyle stop of the PKRA season.  With two months rest and time to train since the last event in Fuerteventura, all the riders are in great shape and kiting extremely well, to take on the perfect conditions of Pingtan.  55 riders from 22 countries have been here for a few days and I’ve had no problem adapting to the 9 m conditions, warm water and kickers.  All the top slalom racers are here as well and the strong wind and waves should make the racing very exciting.

The registration started at four at the Golden Gulf Hotel where all the riders are staying and dinner was held for the riders at the Pingtan Dragon Pheonix Resort Hotel with great food to make everyone feel welcomed.

The competition will start tomorrow morning after the opening ceremony at 9:30.  The wind forecast is looking very good throughout the entire event, but the first two days should offer the strongest winds and most exciting riding.  The event will feature four disciplines freestyle, slalom, twin tip downwind race and a big air contest.  With over $80,000 in prize money, every heat is going to be a battle.

The Pingtan Kitesurfing World Cup 2013 will get underway tomorrow with the freestyle, we will see if anyone can stop the Spaniards Alex Pastor and Gisela Pulido from winning another event.  Bryan Lake is looking in great form and should be hard stop from winning another PKRA slalom event.  Check out all the latest photos and videos on www.prokitetour.com.
