China’s first ever Kitesurfing Competition

13 April 2009 | 10:48 am

China has just had it’s first ever Kitesurfing Competition, held in China’s Tropical Island – Hainan – The event was a great success.

Cabrinha International Team Rider David Hastilow was there as a special guest and was extremely impressed with the organization of the event.

As with all competitions, the only thing you can’t control is the weather and unfortunately the wind didn’t quite hold for the event. Despite this each rider persevered with what wind they had, creating a spectacle for the massive media representation.

The event was covered on many news channels, magazines and newspapers throughout China.

Dave Hastilow: ‘This was an epic event, in a perfect location. The weather was 35 degrees C each day. The kiters from China were awesome and I’d like to thank the event organizers for being so accommodating and great people with a real passion to have China as a big kite event location. Can’t wait to go back!!!’

The organizers of the event are planning to repeat the event in December, which is the guaranteed windy season in Hainan. The media will again be there in full force and it is promised to be a spectacular event.
