2010 Triple-S Invitational Wild Card Winners

Posted on April 19, 2010 by Trip Forman

The 2010 Triple-S Invitational is coming up FAST, scheduled for June 5th - 11th in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina! The Triple-S is an “invite only” freeride event, featuring the 25 best kiteboarders in the world, including 5x World Champion Aaron Hadlow, plus Ruben Lenten, Andre Phillip, Jason Slezak, Sam Bell and more! If you haven't already been thinking about it START planning your trip to Cape Hatteras this June NOW!

Our third year offering up spots in the Triple-S Invitational to NEW riders was quite competitive. The “Wild Card” entries have become widely popular with 22 videos submitted (on time) for 2010. The Triple-S Event Committee had to make the tough decision of narrowing the field down to only 3 wild card riders to compete in the Triple-S Invitational. All of the videos featured a very high level of riding, in flatwater, on the rails and in the surf, from an international pool of kiteboarders spanning the globe. Just the wildcard entries themselves could be put together to form a world-class event or action DVD!

Check out all 22 of the 2010 Triple-S Wild Card Entry Videos!

After over 4 hours of viewing all the videos, the diversified panel of 7 judges voted in Eric Rienstra, James Boulding, and Sam Light to fill the three wildcard positions for the 2010 Triple-S Invitational. These riders, along with 22 others, will travel to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina and re-define once again what is possible for the sport of kiteboarding.
