US$20,000 FOR CINDY MOSEY ISLAND ODYSSEY - VAVA’U

The whopping prize pool will ensure kitesurfing action at an extreme level from the professional women riders attending the CMIO Vava’u in October and it fulfils another life goal for event founder Cindy Mosey in raising the profile of the world’s best women kitesurfers.

“This is truly the most prize money women have ever been given in an event,” said three-times world kitesurfing champion Cindy Mosey. “What is so great about it is that the women coming to Vava’u have all worked really hard to get to where they are and they totally deserve to be riding for such an incredible prize pool.”

The prize money for the Cindy Mosey Island Odyssey Vava’u was provided by Balance Vector, which has helped realise the dreams of women kitesurfers from around the world with its sponsorship of the Odyssey in Fiji last year and now Vava’u, Kingdom of Tonga.

Pro riders will fight for the prize via three divisions - freestyle, course racing and boardercross – with competitors judging the freestyle division. Riders will gain points from each division during the week with points split equally between each division. “This is an excellent way to ensure the prize money will go to the best overall riders.”

Although the action will be spectacular for those enjoying the week-long odyssey at Mounu Island Resort in Vava’u, Mosey said the competitions would be kept “short and sweet” to reflect the main focus of the Odyssey as a positive learning environment for amateur kitesurfers.

“The Cindy Mosey Island Odyssey Vava’u is really all about the social riders, and we want more women to know this event is fun and relaxing as well as an amazing opportunity to take your riding to the next level.”
