Today would go down in kiteboarding history as the day the PKRA Freestyle World Championship crown is passed on to two of the most promising kiteboarders in the world. Kevin Langeree (Naish, NED), after many years of battle, finally was crowned the PKRA Freestyle World Champion in an unprecedented event that saw many upsets and triumphs. Bruna Kajiya (Flexifoil, BRA) would also end the 2009 season with a bang, capturing the women’s PKRA Freestyle World Championship title from Spain’s Gisela Pulido (Airush) after years of reigning the women’s division.
