Inside Alacati: Kiani Carnage

Kurosh Kiani is one of those guys on the tour who can really pull it out the bag to stick solid results when he needs it. However, when you take a ‘tumble’ in your opening heat and injury threatens not just the event but the rest of the season it can be a hard fight, not just physically but psychologically. If you are unsure what we are rattling on about then check out the words from Kurosh himself over the next couple of pages.

Over to Kurosh…

The contest in Alacati is usually the one I look the most forward to throughout the year. I always have a good state of mind here, so I was pretty happy to land here in Alacati a couple of days before the start of the PWA world cup. There wasn’t much wind, so most of the time was spent preparing my gear and having all the practical stuff in order.

On the first day of the competition I was in the first heat. I will admit I was a tiny bit rusty and was left fighting for fourth place. In one of the reaches, I really hammered it and I got this weird gust of wind that lifted me out of the water. After that I´m not sure what happened other than me taking a massive tumble. The first thing I noticed was that I had a terrible pain in my knee, right hand and right ankle. The rescue boat came over and pulled me out of the water totally disoriented. I then assessed the equipment damage. My extension had broken in two pieces and my board was snapped. My big board!!,, in flat water!!. Not sure how I managed that, but I know that it was painful.
