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!!
