The trade winds gave way to lighter winds that were not suitable for running a best trick competition. The wind did come up to about twelve knots at times allowing a few riders to go out and practice on their light wind gear.
The Nissan Noumea Kitesurf Pro organized a show of acrobatic street break dance with a local troop, performing some pretty amazing moves followed by a fashion show.
The Reb Bull fashion show was the highlight of the day, putting smiles on the riders faces and the lucky spectators who came down to the beach. It was a great fashion and bikini contest with the PKRA riders being the judges. The PKRA criteria’s of power, technical difficulty and execution were replaced by smile, talking, dancing and emotion from the crowd.
An international panel of riders was selected to judge the fashion show: Youri Zoon (NED, Slingshot), Marc Jacobs (NZL, Switch Kites), Reno Romeu (BRA, North), Mario Rodwald (GER, North) and Alex Pastor (ESP, Airush) had some tough decisions to make, but being such professionals they could easily pick the top three.
The Nissan Noumea Kitesurf Pro put on a great show and it gave the riders a chance to take a break from the competition, after yesterday’s action pack day.
