Florian Gruber won all his heats in the opening day of the Kiteracing Oceanic Championships, at Leighton Beach, Fremantle, Australia.
With clear blue skies, winds averaging 14 knots, smooth seas and temperatures in the high 20's, the inaugural Kiteracing Oceanic Championships took off in great style.
Overall results put Florian Gruber in first place, in the Men's division, followed by Maks Zakowski, from Poland. The German says he's "feeling good, but pointing upwind is a little slower than usual. I think it's the current".
