The final day of the 2010 La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo was a huge one! The day began with an early 25-30 knot El Norte Wind that wiped away all bad memories of the light wind earlier in the week.
Unfortunately, the 2-mile SUP race was scheduled to happen this morning, and the racers were forced to slog their way upwind in extreme conditions. The finishers claimed that the 2-mile race was more difficult than the 12 mile island crossing! Pam Young was the only woman to finish the course after 1 hour and 45 minutes on the water!
Next on the agenda was the Kiteboarding Course Racing, which gave the spectators on the beach quite a show with all 25 competitors crowding the line at the starts. All-around good guy Damien LeRoy proved himself to be the fastest of the men while Cynthia Brown came out on top for the women.

The 2010 Jupiter Kite Invasion has gone through a massive overhaul in its format. To make the event as simple as possible, there will be a single entry fee for the events.
There will be an amateur/professional and mens/womens division that will be split at the event. We will run events pending weather conditions and number of entries. Below are the basic details for each event.
Big Air Expression Session – Each heat will have 10-15 riders in a 20 minute expression session. This will include both best kiteloop and overall best trick. All jumps must be done over the jump buoy!
