Guess who won the final in the PKRA competition in Germany this year? Yes, you guessed right, Youri Zoon! However, it was a close call between Youri and his main threats Alex Pastor and Kevin Langeree. I wonder how long he will be able to keep the #1 ranking…
PKRA 2012 in St Peter Ording, Germany. The wind conditions are pretty rough as you can see in this video… This is just the first heat to sort out the qualifiers for the final competitions. Will be interesting to see if Youri Zoon wins as usual :)
This video features Mario Rodwald during the PKRA 2012 competition in Adicora, Venezuela. Mario has been kiting for 11 years, he started when he was 10 years old! So, this 21 year old boy is pretty good by now, perhaps a new Youri Zoon… Mario took the 2:nd place in the PKRA in Venezuela, beating Alex Pastor!
As you may know the PKRA (Professional Kiteboard Riders Association) is currently running their first competition for 2012 in Leucate, France. 42 men and 8 girls are showing of their skills in the water. As usual Youri Zoon is a favourite, but there is one new threat for him, Lian Whaley. This guy is only 15 years old and is already one of the top riders in PKRA. Expect to see and hear more of Lian Whaley in the coming years! Here is a video with Lian training in Cumbuco, Brazil.
