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.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
