Hua Hin's famous thermal winds returned today which allowed for the completion of the freestyle double elimination ladder, and board-off competitions to get underway. High powered action and an incredible comeback from world champion, Kevin Langeree (Naish, NTH) were among the highlights in the final day in Thailand.

Langeree saw himself placed at the top of the podium ahead of Alex Pastor (Airush, ESP) in second and Andy Yates (Slingshot, AUD) in third after fighting his way through four continuous heats.

Female world champion Bruna Kajiya (Flexifoil, BRA) was humbled by Karolina Winkowska (Slingshot, POL) in heat #18 of the day proving again that this could be the most open PKRA world tour we've seen. Winkowska also saw off the Hua Hin freestyle single elimination winner Gisela Pulido (Airush, ESP), but was later defeated by Pulido in the following heat. Winkowska was placed second on the podium, along with Bruna Kajiya (Flexifoil,BRA) in third place.
High jumps with numerous rotations and style was what it took for German rider Toby Brauer (North, GER) to win the board-off discipline. French rider Charles Deleau (North, FRA) was placed second with Reno Romeu (North, BRA) came in third.

In the women's board-off division it was Gisela Pulido (Airush, ESP) who was placed first along with Scottish rider, Holly Kennedy, followed by Kari Schibevaag (Ozone, NOR) in third.
This caps off a great opener for the PKRA world tour in Hua Hin, Thailand. Next up on the tour is Mondial du Vent 2010, Leucate France from 10th to 15th April. Stick with Kiteworld.com for all the latest news as it happens.
