A lot of new names in the results for most North American kiteboarders, but the winner Keahi De Aboitiz is a name Australian's are familier with. He is currently the Open Mens Waves Champion for Australia after recently winning the 2011 Australian Open Wave Championships held in Warrnambool, Victoria. Here is today's update and results from the PKRA. Read more...
After doing well in the PKRA event in Australia I figured it would be a good idea to do the first couple PKRA wave stops this year and see how I go. The first stop was in Morocco and I couldn't have asked for a better set up. A perfect little point break with cross shore wind and head high waves. They ran through the singles on the day 2 and as the tide got lower the conditions improved throughout the day. It came down to the final and I was up against Airton Cozzolino from Cabo Verde. We scored some really nice waves for the final and I was really stoked to take the win in the slngle elimination. Unfortunately there wasn't enough wind to get through the doubles so the results stayed the same. Hopefully I can keep it up and do well in the next event.
