PKRA Australia: the jet skis should look for the rocks ahead

It's all over for the world's best kiteboarders. The Gold Coast Kitesurfing Pro 2010 has been concluded and the winners were crowned.

The last day of competition opened with the Red Bull Boarder Cross. Despite the light winds, riders rushed to the start line in hopes of being the fastest to swivel around the Red Bull buoys edging their way to the final obstacle near the shore, where jumping over the last Red Bull sausage buoy was mandatory.

Mitu Monteiro was the fastest and finished in first place, followed by Mario Rodwald and Julien Kerneur. In the Women’s division, Jalou Langeree was the first to cross the last line, Kari Schibevaag took second place and Karolina Winkowska followed in third place.

In the ceremony gala, Andy Yates and Gisela Pulido got their 2010 PKRA Freestyle Championship titles.
