ANISHKA DINEL BLENDED OLD- AND new-school moves to tri­umph at Sri Lanka’s first Na­tional Cham­pi­onships, hosted by the Kite­board Tour Asia (KTA). More t han 60 rid­ers from 13 coun­tries signed up for the event which was also the Asian Freestyle X Cham­pi­onships, with Freestyle X Open and Hang­time con­tests. Dinel opened his ac­count with a dead­man front roll in the fi­nals, only to be coun­tered by a big board off-switch, F16 and back-roll han­dlepass from Sa­mara Priyanka. The Sri Lankan held his nerve and fin­ished with some wake-st yle t r ick s, while Priya nka pushed per­haps a lit­tle too hard and failed to land his fi­nal rush of moves, giv­ing the vic­tory to Dinel. In the Asian Cham­pi­onships, Thai­land’s Yo Nara­pitchit Pudla bat­tled it out and pulled away from his fel­low ri­val Prawit Buachat­turat with a X5 front loop. Buachat­turat came sec­ond, with Philip­pine’s Mark Magliqi­uan in third.
