Ro Sham Throwdown: Hood River trickster

The best freestyle kiteboarders will return to Hood River, Oregon, for the 2011 Ro-Sham-Throwdown, between 13th and 17h July. The format includes a qualification round and an invited riders' list.

Those who are not invited may compete after qualifying in the trials. There will be 6-10 tickets available to compete with the best riders. The invited riders move directly to the final round of competition. A total of 30 kiteboarders will battle for the podium places.

The Ro-Sham-Throwdown is a rail and slide kiteboarding competition. Pro kiteboarder Aaron Hadlow has already won the kite jam event.

Nico von Lerchenfeld has had the time of his life at Surf Snowdonia, in Wales. But he was not there to surf.
