Kevin Pritchard has charged fully into the American Windsurfing Tour (AWT) this year not only on the competition side but as the tour's official videographer. But maybe one of the biggest stories about KP this year was his domination of the kiteboarders in a head-to-head long distance Lord of the Wind Showdown race held in Los Barriles, Baja, Mexico. Just before the race Pritchard offered to split the large cash purse with the top kiteboarder but they simply laughed him off being confident that a windsurfer didn't stand a chance in the upwind-downwind race. Well, Pritchard won and laughed his way to the bank with his new BIG check! CLICK HERE to check out the Pritchard blog.
