2009 Triple-S Invitational Final Results

After the autograph session, Triple-S event mc Trip Forman officially introduced the riders to the growing crowd which filled the entire west and north decks of REAL as well as half the lawn. The roar from the crowd for each rider could be heard a mile away as the anticipation grew to find out who had taken home the Triple-S gold. Aaron Sales, editor of Kiteboarding Magazine, the first and largest kiteboarding magazine in the world, took the microphone and addressed the crowd as to the importance of the Triple-S on an international basis and where the event is taking the direction of the sport. Aaron has traveled the world and been to every major kiteboarding event. His opinion was that the Triple-S is at the forefront of the sport, definitely the best event in the world……

Then it was time to announce the winners of the Triple-S….Surf, Slicks and Sliders, as well as Best Session, Best Wipeout and the Triple-S Slick Style Attitude Award. The Triple-S is judged by the riders themselves, as well as the media staff, providing 36 ballots to assure an accurate and fair result. Of the 4 previous years, this was by far the most difficult year to judge as the riding level was incredibly high and competitive. In years past the judging ballot would take less than 5 minutes to complete, this year it took over 20 minutes for some riders. In the end there were no losers, as everyone got to ride for the entire week, raise their game and have the week of a lifetime in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Dub Island Sound System rocked the house throughout the Triple-S Awards Ceremony and Party from 7pm straight through until 4am, making for an unbelievable end to an unbelievable week. Dub puts on a show that you have to see to believe, some people dancing for 8 hours straight !

Get ready for Triple-S 2010, scheduled for June 5th – June 11th, 2010 in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. It is going to be another epic week of Surf, Slicks and Sliders.

Thanks again to all the sponsors who made this week possible, and to the Triple-S riders and spectators who make this event bigger and better every year!
