After a brief warm up session, competitors hit the North Kiteboarding Fun Box on starboard tack for the first round of heats. Separated into heats of 4-5 competitors, each rider would attempt the feature one at a time for 3 attempts to post their single highest score then again on port tack to make an accumulative score of their 2 highest hits.
