The Cayman Islands boast world class conditions for kitesurfing: crystal clear waters and temperatures during the winter at a tropical 28-30 degrees. And it's windy almost every day from November right through to April. While the rest of the world is pulling on an extra layer, staying indoors and turning the heating up, the Cayman Islands are just getting ready for their peak season.
Cayman’s first annual kitesurfing competition: The Rock International Open (TRIO) takes place from 12 – 16 February 2014, and is set to put the Cayman Islands on the map when it comes to top kitesurfing locations around the world. An impressive list of riders who will be attending and includes Alex Pastor, Karolina Winkowska, Billy Parker, Alex Fox, Steph Bridge and loads more.
Featuring three separate events - Freestyle, Big Air and Racing - TRIO will put competitors through their paces against a Caribbean paradise backdrop that many just dream about. Under 16s will get their own dedicated event and workshops held before, during and after the event provide something for all to do regardless of your age or skill level.
The Rock International Open (TRIO) is not only shaping up to be an incredible competition open to all, and certain to put the Cayman Islands on the map, but check out the calibre of riders that are putting on clinics! If these guys can't get you shredding, then we will eat our hats!
