2009 Triple-S kicks off in Cape Hatteras, NC?.
The 2009 Triple-S Invitational kicked off on Saturday, May 30th with the official Triple-S Welcome Dinner and Opening Ceremonies Party. The Triple-S Invited riders and the public were treated to a classic Carolina BBQ Pig Roast with all the trimmings outside right on the water at The Slick.
The Welcome Dinner started at 5pm and put the sun down as 'DJ Chela' kicked up the music and the Triple-S Opening Ceremonies Party. As the crowd started to wind up, spectators were stoked with a 6 table Triple-S athlete autograph session on the official event poster. The vibe during the autograph session was off the hook as the excitement (and music) kept building and building ! AT 9:10PM it was time to party and the tables were cleared and the dancing began?.

Launch of the John Wayne Slider

This year, John Wayne Cancer Foundation stepped up to the plate and launched a new slider into the park that redefined the standard for kiteboarding sliders worldwide. This new rail was built by The Wake Park Project in Florida, constructed with welded aluminum, covered in HDPE (high density polyethylene).
The new John Wayne rail is 82' feet long and features a removable gap section in the middle, so it can be set up as an 'A-Frame' or a 'Gap Slider'. To see it in the water brings only jaw dropping awe? It's that tight, that powerful and that perfect.
The new John Wayne rail means business and from the second it was delivered to REAL (on three flat bed trucks driving thru the night from Florida) the Triple-S athletes were drooling !

The SW winds filled in all day Sunday and riders hit the water for a 'Slicks' session to kick off the event. The first run was an 8 mile downwinder thru 'The Planet of the Apes' with high speed tricks, low level/powered wake maneuvers, massive downwind speed, land gaps, dock slides, canal runs and mega kite loops from all the riders. Seeing these guys and girls sending down this infamous run is a true privilege. Triple-S event co-director Jason Slezak guided his friends down the run showing them every nook and cranny of flat water, canals, and dock sliders that make this run the ultimate in the world.
The Triple-S week to come....
The 2009 Triple-S Invitational in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina continues through June 5th. The forecast is in place for good SW winds all the way thru Friday. Tuesday Triple-S action will take place in The Slick where the riders are literally dying to ride the new JWCF in butter smooth water. This is where the envelope will be pushed further than ever before in the sport of kiteboarding. The Kona Sunset Session Parties continue every night this week with Mojo Collins playing live on Wednesday night and then Dub Island Sound System on Friday Night at the Awards Party. There is another outdoor BBQ dinner on Friday starting at 5pm to kick off the Awards Ceremony, so make your plans to get here as quickly as possible to enjoy the rest of the 2009 Triple-S Invitational !!! 2009 Triple-S Session Report #1
