The wind forecast changed constantly throughout the week, but finally it was just not enough to get the event under way.

Hvide Sande is an amazing location, which usually offers fantastic kiting conditions. It has been unlucky to not be able to showcase these amazing conditions with our competitors and live-stream, but everyone who has been present for this event leaves with a feeling of appreciation for this area, and for the wonderful people who worked hard to make this event happen.

What happens now?

It's not often that an event cannot start due to lack of wind for the full duration, but unfortunately when you depend on nature, these things happen.

Each rider who attended the event, received 30 points towards their ranking. Focus now shifts to our next event, in Dakhla, Morocco, where Peri Roberts and James Carew will be looking to maintain their leads, but the other riders will try to close in on them.

"So unfortunately the suitable conditions did not materialise this week," says head judge Mallory de la Villemarque. "This means that the title-race now moves to Dakhla. This gives both James and Peri an even better possibility of becoming World Champions, which would be the first time for both. Nothing is certain, but we know that the fight in Dakhla will be very exciting. Dakhla usually consists of a mixed format event, so we are hoping for a good swell to provide a great event and exciting battle for the top spots."
