On the Saturday we were given a nice hard packed beach with a light 12-14mph easterly wind, which was off shore for Westwood Ho! But not a problem as the area behind the beach was clear, this kept the wind nice and clean. So, with everyone ready to battle it out and wanting to become the British Champion in kite landboarding, the day kicked of with the Landboard Pros category, where I would battle it out against the likes of Ash Garwood, James (Floyed) Tideswell, Will Rose and Abe Alzouman to name a few! There were some really tough heats, I was throwing down some handle passes, 1080 spins, 360 inverts etc… The PeterLynn Fury 13m was amazing and was excellent in light winds, the pressure was defiantly on! After a few very intense and competitive heats, I am pleased to say that I walked away with 3rd place at the this event and I also finished 3rd in the British Championships.
Team Mate Carl Kirton also rode exceptionally well in the Amuture Buggying, just missing a podium, but still managed 4th overall. He went on to take 3rd place at this event in the senior landboard category. Was very well deserved, with his amazing style and unique bag of tricks. Carl uses the PeterLynn Charger which is one of the most versatile kites for all disciplines and wind conditions.
