Arrow FREE STYLE !!! - Kiteboard Masters Pt. II


Heading back to Miami and Crandon Park for more of the Kiteboarding Masters 2008 (in 2009!?). Photos from the day appear below in no particular order.
(Click photo for full sized image.)




The Port of Miami is just to the north. You can see traffic ease in and out through the day with kiters ripping in the foreground.



First a couple of looks at the course race again ...


Another view of things just before the start.

Just after the start and the kiters are stretching out. Who do you recognize in the stream of racers?

Shifting gears from the course race to free style ...



Looks like lenticulars are forming over the Stubai, whoops shifted a bit too far. Back to Key Biscayne. By the way, be sure to checkout the write up and photos for the course race in the first part of the day HERE. Some unusual perspectives came out of that one.




Stacey throws a ralley




Spectators get off on the action on the water




Melissa comes in for a landing before Dave




Damo checks out the world inverted, passing along




Joe is having a blast and it shows




Jose gets ready to head out




Incoming




Tommy reaches almost grabs the bar in a pass but just misses. He threw moves down hard continuously throughout.




There can be a lot of sprinting in these events, proven by Will booking back upwind with able assistance from Stacey helping out with his board. He rides for Naish and Stacey works with Best, is that great or what!




Damo, Billy and Dave line up




Jaaz of MKB show here with his moblie communication. I didn't know that normal sized amphibious cell phones were out. You can take this phone into the shower. Why would you want to do that anyway?




There goes Christophe striding north over the flats





Lonny shows off some of that excellent "no straps" balance. Hang in there!




Damo passes as Will moves in




Joe Ruscito pops one




Up and out there




Stacey throws one




Tommy slides out




All Melissa's stretching pays off




Damo books in




I am not sure what is going on but it looks backwards and Gebi is pulling it off of course




Coming in for touchdown sans bar




May have to rename this a kiter's stretch, used to be named after hurdlers. Garry walks in the background.




Times like this you really appreciate those crunches!




KA-POW!









Reminds me of a snowboarding move








The Kahuna just out from Best








Burning in











Champion form shows, lots of other hot talent on the water too









The wind eased just following the completion of the free style event. Unfortunately halting the session on the new mega slider. Next time! Garry paddles out on a JL standup board




The winners of the free style competition, Damo taking first for the men and Melissa for the women. Great job to all!



Damo also wins the best trick of the day award, great low key guy too.




It was a fun day, thanks!
