2010 Peruvian Inka Challenge: DK riding

The Chilca beach turned it on for the first day of the Peruvian Inka Challenge 2010. The day was strictly a drop knee day where 3 rounds of DK riders where surfed.

The glassy waves, around 3 to 4 feet on the sets offered the ideal conditions to run the division. The surprises where the elimination of the current world champion Dave Hubbard to the Peruvian Cesar Bauer and to the Australian top DK rider Dave Winchester to the Canary Ardiel Jimenez.

The standout of the day to Ryan Hardy who's not used to participate in DK events and now is already at the semifinal stage of the first DK Grand Slam event of the tour.

"The Aussies guys are putting some money on me so that's why I'm participating on this division. There is so much pressure on the prone, that I'm enjoying to have some fun in the DK."

The competition will re start this Friday at 9:00 AM local time with the first round of men division. More information can be obtained on the official page of the competition.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved surfing's qualification system for the Tokyo 2020.
