2013 Lord of the Wind Results

Jan 15, 2013

Author: Words and photos Dylan Murphy

The third day of Lord of the Wind was by far the most anticipated. Day 3 was the day of the enormous Lord of the Wind Showdown course race. This race consisted of riding upwind for several miles all the way up to Punta Pescadero, rounding a small orange buoy, and flying downwind all the way back to the start. Nearing the end of the race, it seemed that Johnny Heineken would win the Showdown once again, but in the final mile, Cabrinha racer Bryan Lake overtook him to be named the Lord of the Wind for 2013. This leg of the race was extremely exciting, and most definitely in the top 5 best moments of the event. After all of the racers had finished,  the committee moved on to the hang-time jumping contest. This competition was for kiters only, but remained a huge crowd pleaser. They decided to run it in a way that was similar to the freestyle; four heats, where only the top 6 longest hang times moved on to the finals. The final heat consisted of Mac Skaggs, Jake Kinney, Taylor Meehan, Even Netsch, Alex Agura, and Ty Reed. Unfortunately, by the time they got to the final round, the wind had started to die. Regardless, the riders pumped up their biggest kites and went out onto the water. Even though the wind was light, the contestants still did plenty of lofty jumps and did their best to stoke the crowd. It was hard to say who won, since all of the jump times were only separated by a fraction of a second. After all of the events had concluded, the announcer informed everyone that the awards ceremony would be at Hotel Palmas de Cortez at 6:00. Upon my arrival, they introduced a few of the sponsors who helped fund the event, and got right into the awards. Everybody was having a lot of fun, and I saw a lot of sportsmanship between the competitors. This year's Lord of the Wind was run very well. I hope this event occurs again next year, so that I can compete yet another year.—Dylan Murphy
