Kiri Thode: king of Curacao

The 2012 Curacao Challenge was a great success. The Caribbean windsurfing competitions was run in incredible wind conditions in front of an enthusiastic group of spectators.

Kiri Thode won the Freestyle contest by putting out a crazy show of progressive bag of tricks and moves. The professional windsurfer from Bonaire showed why he is one of the best freestylers in the world.

There were also figure-8 Slalom races being contested with tight battles in the Open and Sport classes. Richard Konstapel, Michel Motshagen and Jean Paul Da Silva de Goes were top performers.

The 2012 Curacao Challenge had a live internet broadcast for all fans around the world. Up to 90 windsurfers enjoyed 20-knot winds in the splendid ocean arena of the Caribbean.

The contest was sailed in three different spots. The beautiful St Joris Bay, Zanzibar for the ocean races and the freestyle heaven of Windsurfing Curacao.

A perfect big wave can change your life. Not only it will put you under the media spotlight, but it will also open new sponsorship opportunities, and invitations to elite contests.
