Our best event yet was thrown this past weekend in St. Pete Beach, FL by the USF Kiteboard club in conjunction with Triton Kiteboarding. We posted up in front of the Undertow Beach Bar for the entire day of Saturday and ran our best boarder-x yet, followed by a freestyle expression session (Triple-S style) no heats.
The day finished with a great afterparty and a top two finish from USF riders Chase Kosterlitz taking the bullet and renowned college sailor Mitch Hall following with a close second. The freestyle expression session finished with a much different awards ceremony. The awards were created at the pre-party by all the riders who were to participate in the following days events. The final ceremony went as follows:
Best overall session: Chase Kosterlitz (USF)
Large Flying Mammal: Mark Barber (UNF)
Bawlz: Alex Moore (Eckerd)
Wreckage: Chester (USF)
Loopmaster: Tripp Hobbs (Eckerd)
Kitemanship: Oli Berlic (Eckerd)
Sponsors included: Watersports West, Arnette, Triton Kiteboarding, Slingshot, USF, Red Bull, and the Undertow!!!
