congratulations on getting it done in some pretty difficult sounding conditions guys and girls!

i think this means we now have a new british champ! Sam light....can someone update the kiteval site with the latest points to be sure.

if it you have done it buddy i am so stoked for you, a lot of hard work over the years!

also i think Sam moore is looking good for the ams as well, you can do it mate!

Ned make the push for the podium in the final round, you have been making up the places so one last effort hey?

helen how is the foot holding up?

Just home now :shock: had to drop my girls off at Heysham then back up to Barrow. Set off 6pm, I must look for something faster next time. Very surreal but fun weekend, everything in the back of your mind tells you not to go out in off-shore and gusty wind but the experience was good to to see how you could handle it. really glad after waiting around all day today that the pros decided to complete the event and run the finals. In my opinion it was a good call to run in off-shore and slope style to minimise rescues although Chris from Deadman did decide to drop his kite a couple of hundred metres off the beach during his run but recovered and tacked back in. Having the jet ski out is a great comfort and the event would have been cancelled without Sea support providing cover. Petes new sponsor is Duck tape who helped him through to the final holding his broken foot together.
Good effort from all the crew once again in very difficult conditions, I'm dusting my suit of ready for Redcar tomorrow, looking forward to it.

Hi

Had a great weekend! if a little confusing :?

Just a word up to everyone.. The friend I stayed with is good friends with the woman at East Riding Council who decides what events can go on and where..

She told my mate that unless East Riding Council get positive feedback from the kitesurfing community about the event and the facilities they will not be as amenable to letting it run from there again.. so perhaps a quick email to them would be good!

Might be good way to smooth things over after the sat night antics :wink:

Thanks for a great weekend.. but next time order the sun and wind in advance it might get there in time for the next one!

A few of the competitors decided to play with their vans!

On a lighter note, a great weekend, still wrecked this morning :-)

Some great riding as usual, Holly Kenedy was the stand out for me, she has really up the stakes for next year in the pro womens fleet, should be intresting to see what she can do after a winter away

Thanks to everybody for making this event what it was

Defo agree with that. Holly, Hoggy and Ned were the standouts yesterday for me. 8) 8) 8)

Yeah, I agree, Hoggy always manages to pull a podium at some point during the year, the "Hoggy Flip" is becoming a real classic and a crowd pleaser, Fat Sands should film it and put it in one of their dvd's 8)

Thanks to all

Respect to all the competitors for going out in harsh conditions

All the crew for helping out

Some sick riding from all concerned

Finally home at 4 am after an epic 9 hour drive from Bridlington via Darlington to Weymouth

See you soon

Well done to everyone for managing what sounds like challenging conditions!
Hopefully Redcar will be better.

Great to see the results have been updated on Kiteival - all except the Am Mens?

Brilliant to see how well the younger ladies are beginning to challenge in the rankings. They've all come on so well this year.
