Saturday June 4th, the backup day for the 2016 Wind Voyager Triple-S Open, saw full glass-off conditions with almost no wind. Event organizers elected to run the event as a wakeboarding contest in the REAL Slider Park, a “plan b” option that was outlined in the Official 2016 Competition Instructions. Although event organizers and competitors alike would have preferred to run the competition behind kites, the glassy conditions were perfect for wakeboarding and were best-case scenario for a day when winds would not reach kiteable levels.
Congratulations to our 2016 Wind Voyager Triple-S Open Winners:
Women’s 1st Place: Manuela Jungo
Men’s 1st Place: Will Palmer
Men’s 2nd Place: Aymeric Martin
Following Saturday’s Open competition, DJ Chela kicked off the Wind Voyager Triple-S Opening Ceremonies, where Invitational Riders were introduced and the winners of the Open competition were announced. Manuela, Will and Aymeric will advance to compete in the Invitational Division for the 2016 Wind Voyager Triple-S.
