PKRA 2010: Cabarete Day 1

It took two hours for the wind to finally come out and play in Cabarete, the the Dominican Republic. Eventually it did though, and along with delicious 31 degrees heat the day looked set to be a great one
The men's trial eliminations were completed rather quickly making it possible for the men's single eliminations to get the green light. Advancing from the first round is Alberto Rondina (Cabrinha, ITA) who defeated local Dominican rider Carlos Rodriguez (EH, D.R.) It was a successful day for most of the local Dominican riders; Felix Antoine (Star Kites, D.R.), local superstar Ariel Corniel (Ozone, D.R.), Alex Soto (F-One, D.R.) and Robinson Hilario (F-One, D.R.) skillfully jumped their way into the second round. Alex Pastor (Airush, ESP), Tomas Teixeira (RRD, BRA), Andy Yates (Slingshot, AUS), Sebastien Garat (RRD, FRA), Luke Whiteside (North, UK), Youri Zoon (Slingshot, NED), Micheal Schitzhofer (JN Kites, AUT), Tom Hebert (Airush, NCL), and world champ Kevin Langeree (Naish, NED) all eliminated their opponents making their way to the second round of heats.
On the women front Karolina Winkowska (Slingshot, POL) defeated the Dominican Queen of Kiteboarding Susi Mai (Cabrinha, GER) in the first heat of the women's division. Holly Kennedy (North, UK) defeated Tala Elajou (F-One, FRA) but was later eliminated by Winkowska in the second round of heats. It was a sad day for Laila Puehringer (JN Kites, AUT) who was defeated by Nadine Merks (F-One, NOR), Merks was later defeated by Gisela Pulido (Airush, ESP) in the second round. Johara Sykes-Davies (Flexifoil, UK) advanced to the second round but was later eliminated by Asia Litwin (Nobile, POL) who defeated 13-year-old Kate Bowcutt (Epic Kites, D.R.) in the first round of heats. Women's champ Bruna Kajiya (Flexifoil, BRA) eliminated Audrey Meyer (Naish, FRA) in the second round.
