Ro Sham Wrap Up

The 2012 Ro Sham Throw Down in Hood River, OR unveiled a format previously unseen in kiteboarding. Slopestyle. Riders each had four runs (two left foot forward, two right foot forward) through a course combining features and flat water. Then advancing through qualifiers, semis and finals. This unique format allowed each rider to have the course to themselves, with all eyes on them and really encouraged performance.
