A few days ago the Red Sea Kitesurf World Cup ended and despite of some minor starting problems it was a memorable competition. Especially the men´s final was really exciting. The 17-years old Liam Whaley from Spain won nine heats in a row and fought his way from the bottom to the top. Just in the final, after a great battle between him and Christophe Tack, he lost. Tack now won three of four PKRA World Cups and is a deserved number one. The women´s competition didn’t offer any surprise. The PKRA overall rankings first, Karolina Winkowska dominated the field from the beginning and could win the final against Gisela Pulido without any problems.
Beside the sportive highlight, the visitors could enjoy a nice entertainment program. Stand up paddling, beach surfing, slackline, volley ball…the opportunities for sportive visitors was great. And for those visitors who just wanted to relax or take a cool drink at the beach bar, the kitesurf world cup also created enough possibilities. In addition every event day ended up with a big beach party, where athletes and visitors celebrated together. The performance of the musician Cosmo Klein was definitely one of the highlights.
The fifth stop of the freestyle PKRA World Tour will take place in middle of July in Fuerteventura. Two weeks later the athletes will come to Germany, to join the biggest kitesurf event in the world in St. Peter-Ording.
