EDP Kite Surf Pro Cascais 2012 Comes to an End

After a holding period of 10 days, from the 1st until the 10th of June, the inaugural event and first-ever European tour stop on the 2012 KSP World Tour, the EDP Kite Surf Pro Cascais, has come to an end. A grand total of 36 rides (24 male and 12 female) representing 18 nations took part in the EDP Kite Surf Pro Cascais event held at Guincho Beach in Portugal.

The wind provided suitable conditions for competing only on two days – on day 3 and on day 8. On these two days the KSP riders managed to battle their way up through 17 heats. 32 heats, 23 in the men’s and 9 in the women’s division could not be completed due to unsuitable conditions.

Even though the conditions did not allow for the completion of the entire elimination ladder, the KSP presented the riders with the highest single wave scores with Best Wave Awards.

Because the entire elimination ladder could not be completed, KSP riders could not accumulate points towards the world ranking.

EDP, the City of Cascais, Best Kiteboarding, Nissan, TMN, MEO, Telepizza and Buondi as well as national media partners RFM and RTP supported the EDP Kite Surf Pro Cascais 2012 event.

Next up on the 202 KSP World Tour is the event that will take place in Mauritius in September. The KSP One Eye Pro will take place at One Eye, Le Morne, Mauritius, from the 7th until the 16th of September.
