Day 2 PKRA Morocco

INTRO - Raging winds hit Essaouira Bay on day two as Langeree and Pulido take the single eliminations with KW columnist Jo Wilson right back in the action with a solid second in the women's!

PKRA PRESS RELEASE:
It was a spectacular second day for the Essaouira Kiteboarding World Cup 2010. The men's and women's single eliminations got underway at approximately 11:30am under hazy skies, warm temperatures and fiery winds.

It was an outstanding day for Austrian rider, Michael Schitzhofer (JN Kites, AUT). Schitzhofer defeated local Moroccan rider Momo Hamaini in his first heat of the day with clean executions, power, style and technical difficulty of tricks. Schitzhofer was on fire in the third round of heats, eliminating Andy Yates (Slingshot, AUS) in a very close heat due to better execution and switch tricks. Youri Zoon (Slingshot, NED) put an end to Schitzhofer's winning streak in the semi finals, which would lead him to 4th place in the single eliminations.

Youri Zoon (Slingshot, NED) competed with great power and strength today, eliminating Ben Bowd (Rodwy, GRE), Ariel Corniel (Ozone, DOM) and Michael Schitzhofer (JN Kites, AUT) landing him in the final against fellow Dutchmen Kevin Langeree (Naish, NED). Zoon's mobe 5 and switch blind-judge 3 were not enough to take on 2009 World Champion Langeree. Zoon takes the second place title while Langeree finishes in first place.

The Italian Stallion, Alberto Rondina (Cabrinha, ITA) was also on top of his game today defeating Moroccan rider Yassine Bouceta followed by Sebastien Garat (RRD, FRA). Kevin Langeree (Naish, NED) eliminated Rondina in the semi final earning him 3rd place in the single eliminations.
