Congratulations are in order for AYC member Tiger Tyson!
After winning the Twin Tip Racing Open Worlds in China Tiger is now also ranked number 1 in the World under 19 TTR. On top of that for an extra bit of fun he raced the Men’s Kitefoil Gold Cup at the same time and is also ranked number 9 for 2017 with no training.
He was greeted by the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda off the plane from China along with the Minister of Sport and he has done a couple of TV studio interviews. If you are on FB, whatsapp or drop box and you would like to see the ABSTV interview, please contact AYC and we would make arrangements to have this available for you.
Tiger is the World Under 19 (Boys they call it) Open Twin Tip Racing Champion. Open meaning you can use any equipment (kite and board). Under 19 means any age under 19. TTR is a slalom boardercross high intensity/speed downwind around buoys and jumping over cylinders. 8 racers at a time in an intense sprint. Each race probably only lasts about 8 minutes but exhausting with lots of collisions and tangles. Tiger has also got to do the Youth Worlds in Brazil in Nov which is the prelim to the Youth Olympic Games qualifiers starting in Jan in the Dominican Republic. Youth Worlds is ages 15 to 18 on specific approved equipment.
