Final day at the VKWC St. Peter Ording

St. Peter Ording delivered outstanding conditions over the entire 10 days of the Pringles Kitesurf World Cup. The global kitesurfing elite gathered together, completing the full Trials, Freestyle Elimination, and 5 full Slalom Eliminations. With the freestyle already completed by Thursday, the final two days of the VKWC St. Peter Ording were dedicated purely to the slalom racers. The fastest men and women hit the water prepared to show us their pace and power in a fight to cement their positions at the top of the rankings. We saw variable wind conditions for the continuation of the Slalom Discipline. Men’s Elimination 4 began under partly cloudy skies with onshore wind. This was a big contrast to the off shore wind conditions during the previous eliminations, challenging racers with a course full of chop and some moderate waves at the finish. Julien Kerneur (FR/Airush) and Marvin Baumeister (AU/Flysurfer) battled it out and crusied into the final taking 1st and 2nd in Heats 3 and 8! But in the final their rivalry ended in a climactic kite collision that took both riders out of the race! It was Florian Gruber (DE/Ozone), Olly Bridge (GB/North), and Jannis Maus (DE/North) who advanced to the …

Fighting their way up the freestyle ladder, they faced each opponent with outstanding strength and determination, giving each of them a truly deserved victory. The weather for the day was once again extremely tough, with the wind blowing up to 30 knots. The heats got underway at 9.15 am, with all the freestyle riders pushing hard in each intense battle. For the quarter finals, there was an extremely tight heat between 2x World Champion Youri Zoon (NL/Best) and Aaron Hadlow (GB/North). Zoon was on form, landing an impressive 317 and S-Mobe 7. However, Hadlow performed an even bigger S-Mobe 7 in an intense final minutes of the heat. In the end, Hadlow took the victory from Zoon’s grasp. Recent qualifier Jerome Cloetens (BE/North) came face to face with Carlos Mario (BR/Slingshot) in the second heat of the quarter finals. There were perfect kickers and flat water on the inside, which created some optimal conditions for the riders. Both young guns went all in during their heat, throwing one …
