For the second year running, Corona Extra is putting its energies into Kiteboarding. This weekend Funsport, Rhosneigr played host for the UK round. 15-18 knots offshore wind and glorious sunshine greeted competitors of the European Kite Cross Tour. That plus the Corona Mega Wheels with crates of Corona, huge stereo system and quad bikes that came with!!
Kite Cross is a course set up with obstacles and that have to be jumped and moves that have to be completed in a race format. It\’s a new discipline in kitesurfing that is guarenteed to be loads of fun and you don\’t have to be a super star kitesurfer to enter.
1st Gunner Binash (Germany) – Peter Lynn, Kalima
2nd Matt Wemms (UK) – North
3rd Dave Buckland (UK) – North
4th Migueal Castro (Germany) – Wipika
“If you can jump and throw yourself into a rotation then you will be more then capable of entering. Anything can happen and anyone can win. You might be hammering along in first place then catch your rail, misjudge an obstacle or hit a gust and before long you are chasing the rear! To be able to understand how much fun it is, you just have to be there!!!”
The next event in the Corona Kite Cross Championships is 16-18th September in Spain!!
