Day 4 - Teri Kite Pro 2009
After three straight days of intense action in Noumea, New Caledonia it was nice to have a more relaxed and fun-filled morning greeting the fourth day of the Teri Kite Pro 2009. The wind was very light but the temperature was very much the same as in the past few days.
PKRA Events director Olaf Van Tol tried to organize a BorderCross as a fun event but only a few people entered as many of the athletes decided to take advantage of the situation to enjoy what New Caledonia has to offer. As a result, Van Tol decided to wrap up the day early at 3:00 pm.
Most of the competitors either went sight-seeing, stand-up paddle boarding or went out on the water for some kiting while the others chose to chill-out and relax. A band played for the crowd at the event area while a beauty pageant was also held where Miss Teri was crowned at around 6:00 in the evening.
Day 5 - Teri Kite Pro 2009
Super nice warm weather and windy conditions saw the Teri Kite Pro 2009 off with a fond farewell. The air temperature peaked at a delicious 28 degrees Celsius while the wind averaged 18 knots.
The mandatory riders' meeting was held at 12:00 noon with a majority of the competitors joining the event which lasted for about an hour from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm. After the expression session, the official awards ceremony was held, for the winners of the New Caledonia Freestyle competition, as well as the winners of yesterday's three disciplines and the crowning of the new PKRA World Tour Champions. The awarding ceremony officially ends the Tour year.
