Griffiths' kite title.

KITESURFING NORTH Wales kitesurfer Megan Griffiths was crowned Ladies Amateur Freestyle Champion, while her Turbulence Angels' team-mate Sheryl Confue was third in the course racing section.

It's been Griffiths' first season competing on the British Kitesurfing Association tour after only taking up the sport 18 months ago.

Freestyle kitesurfing sees the riders put into groups of two or three and being given seven minutes in which to 'out-trick' their opponents. Riders progress through the rounds to a final giving an individual result for each completion.

"Kitesurfing is one of, if not the fastest growing 'extreme' sport in the UK, it's so much fun and it's really not hard to learn the basics," said Griffiths.

"I started about 18 months ago and absolutely love it, this is my first season of competition so I'm really pleased to have won the Ams overall."
