Solaire Blue Palawan Kiteboard Open 2017
Sam Light has triumped the Solaire Blue Palawan Kiteboard Open 2017, at Puerto Princesa, Philippines.
The first event of the 2017 Kite Park League enticed kiteboarders from over 13 countries to tens days of windy competition in Asia's first kite park located on the island of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines.
The conditions for the Men's final were right. With cloudless skies, flat waters and regular 20-knot plus of wind, nine kiteboarders took turns to hit the Philippines rooftop, Solaire kicker, and the North Kiteboarding fun box.
Each athlete took his single best score out of three hits on each feature to the points board. In the end, Sam Light won with his collection of innovative and progressive signature stunts and movements.
On the Women's final, Annelous Lammerts used her world tour experience to defeat fellow kiteboarders, Colleen Carroll and Sensi Graves.
