Day 9 KSP - No wind lay day

Kahului, Hawaii ? December 7, 2012: The Ho'okipa Kite Surf Pro was forced into a holding pattern this morning before eventually being called off at 3PM due to light and variable winds. Contest directors are optimistic that the Ho'okipa Kite Surf Pro Champions and overall World Tour Champions will be crowned tomorrow in classic Ho'okipa conditions. 'We knew today was a bit of a toss-up in terms of wind,' said KSP head judge Brad Price. 'Tomorrow looks much better and we will be crowning the champions by tomorrow afternoon.'
With a stellar forecast on the charts and the KSP World Championship title on the line, tomorrow promises to be an incredible day of world-class kite surfing. The first heat on deck tomorrow between world number 1 Patri Mclaughlin (HI, North) and world number 4 Luke McGillewie (RSA, RRD) will be the first of many do-or-die heats in the road to the finals at the Ho'okipa Kite Surf Pro.
