BIDEFORD College student Sam Moore returned from the second round of the British Kitesurfing Association's National Freestyle series in Barrow in Furness with a tremendous second place.Juniors travelled from all over the country to take part alongside the pros, amateur men, women and senior competitors. The wind died down during Sam's first heat, but picked up in time for the second round, allowing him to win through to the semi finals. By the time the final came, the boys had been on the water for six hours and the tiredness was showing. But the south west ruled the day with Sam in second, beaten only by his Edge Watersports team co-rider Jack Shoulder from Exmouth.Next day, as the wind was still blowing well, the organiser's arranged an Expression Session with riders in each category on the water together for 20 minutes to show off their best tricks. Sam was judged to have pulled off the most technical trick and awarded first prize in the U16s.Sam is now training hard at his local Westward Ho! beach ready for the next round in Hunstanton in three weeks time.
