Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton - Report and Results

Must have been the ski goggles... Jonno Keys after the race.
"After last years success, the kiteboarding world was expecting big things from Perth last weekend. Luckily, the event organisers absolutely nailed it! Producing one of the highlights of the 2012 kiteboarding calendar.

Racing from Rottnest Island to Leighton Beach is a pretty serious feat in itself, let along doing it in a pack of hungry kiters, all itching for glory! The open ocean passage is well know for being sharky, rough and always windy, yet the kiters took to the conditions like only a kiter would, and put on a great show for the crowd of over 1000 people lining Leighton beach, WA.

At the front of the pack (by only 10 seconds!) was Jonno Keys. Maybe being a local helped, or maybe he just trained harder than everyone else, but nobody could deny the guy was FAST! Riding an Ozone Edge and custom slalom board, he was up the front from the start. Prepared and ready for the start, unlike lots of people! With most competitors only having done a few (or never!) races before, the starts and gear selection were troubling to say the least. Some competitors were still pumping up kites 10minutes before the start!

The best combination of gear to use is still being debated now, after the event has finished! But what's not being argued is how well the event was managed and organised. Here's what Jonno (the guy who won) had to say on the Seabreeze forums after the event:

"Thanks Tim & his racing officials & starters, boat crew, Redbull, Reg & Daniel & Cabrinha, Rotto express, the amazing WAKSA crew on beach making the day calm & organised on Rotto & start beach.

The most fun day in kiting for sure - came 33rd last year & 1st in 2012 and both were unreal. 2012 just better because of crazy, big REDBULL trophy in my living room"

Will everyone be back next year? You bet! Organisers might even have to work out a way to get more entrants involved, because there were some seriously disappointed kiteboarders who missed out on the draw this year! Stay tuned for the full video from Red Bull, but in the meantime check the preview out. "By

So basically, the score was 25 minutes and Michael was 36 minutes. He did not even train! He will be ready next year though!!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism

or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content

I've either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up

all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any

methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd

definitely appreciate it.

I as well as my buddies happened to be analyzing the great guidelines found on your web

page then then I got a horrible suspicion I had not thanked the web site owner for those techniques.
These ladies

had been for that reason joyful to learn

them and have in effect in truth been taking pleasure in these
things. Appreciate your really being very helpful and for

deciding upon some remarkable things most people are really needing to understand about.

not expressing gratitude to you earlier.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform
you're working with?

I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time

selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is

because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely

unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but
I had to ask!

The very crux of your writing while appearing reasonable

in the beginning, did not settle properly with me after some
time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs

you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short

while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and you might do well
to fill in those gaps. When you can accomplish that, I could certainly end up

being impressed.
