The Delta Board Meeting
This past weekend, the 2nd annual Delta Board Meeting went off coordinated by The Kitebar in Pittsburg, CA! The contest consisted of Big Air, Freestyle and Slalom. Day 1 was pretty light but started out with some attempts at Big Air and then we went into the Slalom racing with over 3 hours on the water with men and women taking turns going through the course and then back upwind. Day 2 we had much stronger winds allowing to run the freestyle comp and redo the Big Air from the day before. Great days kiting in the Delta!
We had 25 competitors participate with half of them being ladies! Everyone had a blast stoking each other out off and on the water and the event organizers Eugenia and Grom put on a great event! Also a big shout out to all the volunteers, without you the event would not have run so smoothly!
Erin was ready to rock her Armada, even her board matches her car!
This little competitor had a long day out in the sun!
Team Best did pretty well at the event with Lia coming out of retirement (last kite event she competed in was in 2005!) and taking a podium for 3rd in Women's Slalom after beating out The Kitebar's Eugenia in a beer chug off to settle the tie. Dj Guacamole took home the Most Stoked award! Fritz Otiker has been doing a lot of training in Sherman Island and that paid off as he ended up taking the 1st place finish in Men's freestyle!
Third place finish for Lia in the Women's Slalom
First place finish for Fritz in the Men's freestyle division with of course a stoked DJ Guacamole in the background!
