Non stop action took place at Blackpool Sands on Friday Afternoon. The points were sooo close between Denzil Williams and Dave Ibbertson plus Neil Hilder was hot on their heels, so the champion title could have gone to one of a few riders!!!
With ever increasing winds the action just got better and better, kite loops got bigger and bigger and wipeouts harder and harder. Sam Kirby was rippin\’ with awesome kite loops and Lewis Crathern was nailing SICK kiteloop handle passes, but the podium places was not theirs this day!!!
The final saw Denzil, Ibby and Hilder totally maxed out, but still 100% determined to land their best moves. Howling winds and pouring rain wasn\’t going to deter them and nor did it deter the specatators!! Barely a kiter left the beach before dark mesmerised by the level of these riders!!! For the first 5 mins it was too close to tell who was winning, but then came the HUGE handle pass from Ibbertson closely followed by a perfectly landed s bend to blind shp!!! From the cheers on the beach, the crowds favourite was obvious!! The title of Men\’s Pro British Champion 2005 goes to Mr Dave Ibbertson!!!
