Cyclone Bill misses KPWT Canada

The first day on the KPWT Acadie Kiteboard Pro 2009.
Skippers meeting started the day at 10h00 for further details as to conditions.
Unfortunately as anticipated, the wind never arrived from the forecasts of cyclone “Bill” and the riders used this opportunity to take to the water and test the waves.


The competition is predicted to be a great show in the Wave Masters discipline as the World’s top riders have arrived to appreciate this new location and to push themselves further up the KPWT rankings for 2009!

The location is ideal for the riders, peaceful, beautiful and with strong conditions.
Kirsty Jones (UK, Animal) is here after winning the first two Wave Master events and looking strong at the top into the few events left this year.
Many local riders have also come to the competition to test themselves against the World’s best and see how their local knowledge can benefit.
There are some big local names, William Acosta (CAN, STARKITES), Simon Gill (CAN, DAKINE) and Eric Gerard (CAN, CABRINHA) who have up down to Shippagan.
We have seen this in Germany 2009, when Mario Rodwald and Stefan Permien, used their local knowledge to dominate the freestyle in Sylt.

Tonight hosts a barbecue for all at 19h39 to celebrate the success of yet another KPWT stop for 2009. And hopefully tomorrow the wind will arrive and the competition can begin with some World Class Kitesurfing!
