But as competition intensified at the International Kiteboard Association (IKA) championships, the siblings showed they were human after all with a few blips in otherwise flawless performances in a series of races in perfect 20kts winds and flat water. Yet, the slight stumbles had little effect on the leader board with the pair retaining top spots in the five-day competition in Boao, Hainan.
