The top 6 men and 4 women moved on to the next round while 9 men and 5 women had to battle it out for the last 3 spots in the final round. Eric Reinstra, Craig Cunningham, and Rich Sabo claimed the top spots in the second round along with Katie Potter and they will all continue to compete in the Spornado Hood Jam finals tomorrow. Rich stomped 3 backside 540s in a row on the Full Sail Session kicker and a melon grab frontside 540 on the Slingshot kicker. Craig showcased his experience on the sliders and pulled out some steezy combinations. On the North rooftop he linked a frontside board slide to a frontside 270 over the …


2017 Spornado Hood Jam Day 2

An unexpected wind filled the Columbia River Corridor from early this morning until the evening sunset. It was one of the classic gusty gorge days with a southerly direction taking the wind to the next level. Day 2 started the preliminary heats with some of the gnarliest 15 knot gusts sending riders soaring higher and landing harder than anyone expected. All this action throughout the day created a captivating scene as spectators watched from the angles of 3 different beaches surrounding the Slider Project park. After a watching the wind increase steadily throughout the morning, the first men’s heat started in the early afternoon. A couple of home town shredders stood out by putting together strong hits such as the local American muscle, Brandon Scheid. The kicker hits were the best entertainment of the day as the riders made their way through the left and right kicker preliminaries in the late afternoon. Rich Sabo gave a solid performance while landing a Heal Back 540, Toe Front 720, and Heal Front 720 to round out his day.

Solaire Blue Open 2017 – The Men’s Final Showdown

The conditions for the Men’s Final of the Solaire Blue Palawan Open could not have been any better. Sunshine, flat waters and a consistent 20+knts of wind that built throughout the day, it was the ideal amphitheatre for the spectators who had flocked to Blue to watch the showdown commence. 9 riders took turns to hit the the Solaire kicker, It’s More Fun In The Philippines roof top and North Kiteboarding fun Box, taking their single best score out of three hits on each feature to the points board. It was show-stopping stuff with each rider a prime contender for the podium. With the green and white flags up, it was time to put everything on the line, and everyone did! Heading up the videography team was Tom Court, working closely with Vincent Bergon. With such challenging conditions for capturing aerial footage, it was inevitable that the drone would eventually end up in the drink. Thankfully rice in the Philippines is everywhere and it dried out swiftly, making a full recovery. We’ll be catching up with the official judges for an breakdown later on and to hear more about who did what. Stay tuned!
