News Headlines – Fri 25th

Already this morning (which was this afternoon in Vietnam!) Kiri Thode has won the single elimination PWA Freestyle at Mui Ne – he threw down culos, air flakas, a shaka 360, spock-culo and ponch to overcome Gollito in the final. Third and fourth went to Taty and Tonky Frans. Both Brits fell to the finalists in the second round, Max Rowe to Kiri and Bubble to Tonky. Check out the full ladder here, and check for more action tomorrow morning…

Dakhla in Western Sahara saw action too yesterday, with the first race of the event – a 40km downwinder in 15-20 knots – finally starting on day 7. After some confusion it seems Diony Guadagnino won the men\’s fleet, with Sarah Hébert first of the women home. More here.

Now, jump aboard with Keith Teboul for a ride at Ho\’okipa – we saw this harness-mounted camera angle from Proffitt and Thorpy last year, and it\’s definitely a winner… More from Quatro / Goya at
