- 29 August 2010 | Kiteboarding
Adam Vance has won the 2010 West Coast Open and the 2010 Canadian National Championships of Kiteboard Racing in Squamish, BC, Canada.
The event was held in very difficult weather conditions.
The smooth breeze of the Squamish wasn't available for kiteboarders and the average race times were obviously worse than the usual.
That's why tactics and physical skills were decisive to find the overall winners.
