Event Wrap Up

Congratulations to all the riders in our first ever Regional championship. We spent two days waiting for wind, but on the third day boy did it blow. Talent was top notch even for some of the riders that were not used to the waves and we even got two new riders from UF who had not participated in the past.

Thanks again to Billy Bosch for being a gracious host and getting the event together with Beach N’ Boardsfest, Neil Hutchinson for judging and bringing the huge Slingshot tent, and Damein Leroy for judging and bringing the foils for the light wind days. All the riders got some sort schwag from Cabrinha, Slingshot and Dakine provided by our hosts and judges. As always a huge thanks to our sponsors Liquid Force and providing us a new 134 Focus with Fusion straps to our top school and Best Kiteboarding providing demo kites and helping us fund all of our events!
