Krk Handi Tricks 2011

PRESS RELEASE

Wakeboard center Cable Krk  – 05-11 June 2011

Krk Handi Tricks 2011

International Wakeboard School and Competition for Disabled

Once more the popular Cable Krk held the traditional wakeboard school and competition for the disabled named Krk Handi tricks. The event took place from 5.06 to 11.06.2011 at the bay of Punat on the island Krk.

This happening gathered together 10 competitors from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and France. We’ve seen advanced riders and absolute beginners make this a successful week in sports and entertainment.

Saturday’s competition had six disabled competitors, most of them paraplegic, but there were also four more able bodied competitors who only had the task of riding on the specially adjusted sitting wakeboards.

The course had room for water tricks and tricks over obstacles, across a length of the three hundred meters long course, which was all overviewed by three judges. The results were multiplied by a coefficient that represents the degree of disability.

First place belonged to Philippe Turchet from France, a longtime competitor, but also the chairman of the division for disabled wakeboarding under the International waterski and wakeboard federation. He has supported this event for years, and has been active from the very start. Second place belonged to his compatriot Loris Haeffner.

Zdravko Lakic from Rijeka, with the highest rate of disability, took third place. His performance brought amazement to the large crowd and judges.

Dj Preddy from Austria was in charge of setting the perfect mood with a selection of  funk, reggae and chill out hip hop, which created an atmosphere everyone will remember.

The city Krk and company Svijet mora which manages the sports and recreation centre Cable Krk, were the main sponsors of this event.  The local board of Punat also supported the event.

The participation was completely free for everyone, and all participants received prizes and goodies acquired by the sponsors.

Krk Handi Tricks has been held since 2004 at the well known sports and recreation centre Cable Krk. The aim of this manifestation has always been presenting waterskiing and wakeboarding to the general public as a great recreational sport for the disabled.

Krk Handi Tricks is a traditional week of great fun and instructive lessons, not only for our fellow athletes with disabilities but also for all of us, who take everyday life for granted.
