posticon pei pkra event report


Kim and I and JC were on PEI during the pkra in Sept. There is some great shallow water, I mean shallow...6-12" for miles.!. Nice people and whatever wind direction there are tons of places to ride. We saw 5 different places close to summerside and rode 3 of them. We did not see any wave locations but they say there are some like cavendish area.

Funny to see the likes of hadlow and langeree etc doing their best. The basic deal is you MUST be unhooked and do a gymnastic and than plop. No big jumps just lots of handlepass action. From the sidelines you need to watch carefully to appreciate the level. All the kites were C with about 50% being 5th line. No sigma or flat kites at all in the game. That makes sense for the style and level these guys are at. Who needs depower right? emoticon

Re: pei pkra event report


I forgot to mention that it was ridiculous how few people in Canada came. There were some people who follow the pkra around the world and the locals.
The organizers have the option for the event to be there for 2 more years. This is the only north america event. So come on go and check it out next year.
I think a ktown bus tour would be the way to go!
