Aaron Hadlow: no more PKRA in 2012

Aaron Hadlow has ruled out the possibility of returning to the PKRA World Tour, in the 2012 season. The British kitesurfing prodigy took a harsh landing and tore his ACL and Meniscus, while shooting for a new short movie, in the beginning of February.

"No PKRA as planned for 2012 but everything happens for a reason. I have lots of other things I can now focus on harder so still looking forward to the coming year", explains Aaron Hadlow.

The freestyle magician had to be operated and, fortunately, everything went well. Hadlow undertook a knee surgery with one of the world's best knee doctors.

"I'm on crutches for two more weeks. Just finished off some final interviews with Tom Court and Sam Light for the UK Crews DVD edit, soon to drop", he added. Aaron has been receiving lots of support from his family, sponsors, friends and kiteboarding community.

The world kiteboarding champion has hit a kicker and went for a sizeable "Mobe 5", but he landed a little over the front and collapsed his right knee. He is expected to make a full recovery to get back to his creative kite world.

Rob Bain, Layne Beachley, and Dave Macaulay have taken out the Azores Airlines World Masters Championship in the Grand Masters, Women's Masters and Men's Masters divisions held in good three-foot surf at Praia de Santa Barbara.
