Riders from the Caribbean have now responded to this RRD K race Caribbean 2010. The 28 riders entered were all seduced by the potential of the K race monotype board. A versatile board that works at all speeds. All riders discovered the board, and it took them few minutes to understand how to run the beast. In the afternoom, the kiters even go faster than windsurfers. The 12 knots tradewind was perfect for the morning triangle. In the afternoon, a longest slalom course was launched. On Sunday, the 9 knots wind was enough dor démos on the K races, but the organization has not validated this races. So, a weekend intensive on both the water and on land at night with both parties appreciated. Congratulations to the 4 girls who have entered tamed "the beast". Thank you to riders from Martinique, Guadeloupe and St. Barts . See you in Martinique at the Pointe Faula (Le Vauclin) on May 29-30, 2010. Results page: http://www.sxmchallenge.com
