Che Shale's Kitesurf Competition - 2010
Here is a peek at what you missed (or enjoyed if you were with us) on August 23rd and 24th 2010!
Thanks to very generous donations for our raffle from our local businesses, the event
raised funds for Watamu Turtle Watch - a charity which is close to our hearts. Whenever
we kite along the reef and happen to encounter these magnificent creatures, we are
reminded of why they need our help to continue to survive and thrive on the Kenya Coast!
Special thanks to: Jon Whelan, our talented Graphic Designer; Rory McGuinness, our very
entertaining MC; Boris Polo our super organized Beach Master, our devoted Judges Herve
and Tony, Linzi and her models for organizing a glamorous fashion show, and last but not
least, thanks to Fandango Duo for great tunes under the stars!
Our winners: Men #1 Prize: Oliver Niklin (Kenya) | Men #2 Prize: Xan Woods (Kenya)
Men #3 Prize: Stas Trebinski (Kenya) | Women # 1 Prize: Aya Shirai (Japan)
Our Judges: Boris Polo (H20 Extreme), Tony Forbes (Surfer guru),
Herve Boure (3X Waveriding Kite World Champion)
our JudgeMobile lovingly decorated in Che Shale signature natural style!
Our 2010 Tee Shirts – Sorry if you could not buy your 2010 collectible, we ran out so fast.
We promise to print twice as many next year for another funky design.
