Although the wind didn’t show for day one riders were welcomed with glorious Sardinian weather, sunshine, blue skies with the odd whispy cloud, the type of weather you’d right home to Mum about if she wasn’t a kiter!
The ten O’clock skippers meeting ran through the formalities for the week of competition, explaining just how the competition would be run and what the judges are looking for in both Big Air and Freestyle disciplines.
With the forecast looking great for the following days (a slight chance of wind tomorrow afternoon then windy for the rest of the week) it looks like there will be ample time to finish both disciplines and crown the Freestyle and Big Air 2016 World Champions!
Lewis Crathern top ranked Big Air rider said, “I’m really happy to be here the spot and whole area is so beautiful and the food is simply amazing, I’d come back here just to eat the food again I think! haha”. There’s no denying that the food in both the host Hotel and surrounding restaurants and bars is of the highest quality, if there’s one thing that the Italians know how to do right it’s food. Lets just hope it doesn’t weigh these guys down too much for the main event!
With an amazing forecast and clean offshore spot to ride this competition is going to be a good one, make sure you tune into the live heat to heat updates and press releases for the following days to keep up with the latest results.
Thunderstorms and lightning put the racing on hold before the day turned into champagne sailing conditions. Guy Bridge is on a charge with a hat-trick today. Check it all out at our Facebook and Instagram stories @kiteclasses
