“In China for the first time ever, the PKRA enjoyed a great welcome from the local organizers, fans and community of Haikou, Hainan Island, China on Tuesday.
31 Rider from 16 different nations are registered including Liquid Force Riders Christophe Tack and Manuela Jungo.
With registration day also came the official welcome dinner, put on by the local Hainan Island government and attended by numerous government and city officials.
Over the next week, forecast modals expect wind to build, with constable conditions a strong prediction. Going into the first day of competition, one thing is certain – this PKRA Hainan Island Tour stop will
go down in history as the first ever major kiteboarding event in China’s history, and the kiting feats we’ll see in the South China sea will surely show the world just how long overdue this event really is.” PKRA Report, Manuela Jungo
Since Tuesday, Manuela Jungo has made it into fourth place after the single eliminations. Riders wait anxiously for wind to appear for the doubles.
