Brandon Scheid and Karolina Winkowska are the big winners of the 2018 Hood Jam! Check here the final results of this year’s event.

Press Release and Final Results:

It would be an understatement to say this years Hood Jam event scored epic Kiteboarding conditions. Ian Daly (local rider and judge for the event) said it best, “These are the best conditions I’ve ever seen for an event here”.

With great conditions came excellent riding, the level was the highest and tightest in KPL history. NBDs (Never Been Done Tricks) were thrown in both the Mens and Womens competition, whilst the top three Men were separated by a mere point.

Guessing the order of the top five in the Mens competition was a hard task but it was clear that Brandon Scheid, Ewan Jaspan and Sam Light all had the overall consistency across features to take a podium spot.

Ultimately though it was the hometown hero Scheid who ranked first on four of six features and took out the top spot, Scheid closely followed 0.03 points behind by Jaspan then Light. Scheids local knowledge and ability in the Slider Project park is second to none and it’s no surprise to many that he’s brought home the Hood Jam title for yet another year. Jaspan and Light are nipping closely at his heels and it will no doubt be another epic battle royal at the Kite Mansion in Brazil for the final KPL stop later this year!

The Womens field was stacked and provided an interesting watch with new faces moving up the rankings. Julia Castro took out second place with an admirable display on the Cabrinha Funbox making a hit that could have easily topped the Mens qualification round on that feature, unfortunately though Castro didn’t have the consistency across the park to make up the 4 point lead from Winkowska. In third place was a new face, Katie Potter. Potter has been on a tear lately, riding solid at the SSS then progressing her riding over the last few months in the Slider Project park. It may come as a surprise to some that she took out the third position, yet if you had seen her in the park recently you’d know why she did with a fearless and fast paced approach clearly impressing the judges. It was once again Karolina Winkowska however who showed us why she’s four times World Kiteboarding Champion, taking a tactical yet aggressive approach to all features in the park, garnering her the top position.

With stop two of the Kite Park League tour over for another year stay tuned for the official event video and media on the KPL Facebook account!

The 2018 Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational came to an end. Brandon Scheid and Karolina Winkowska ended up in first place in Cape Hatteras. Watch the video highlight of the last day of competition!

The 2018 Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational was bigger and better than ever, with more riders, bigger bands and bigger parties. Thirty-four of the worlds best wakestyle kiteboarders battled it out for their share of the $50,000 prize purse and claim to everlasting fame on the Wind Voyager Triple-S perpetual trophy. The competition ran on the Wind Voyager Super Kicker, Liquid Force Kites Reverse Rainbow, KOA Resorts Kicker, ION Rooftop, and John Wayne Mega Slider from June 2nd – 8th 2018.

After months of pumping southwest, the winds shifted directions and made for challenging competition conditions but the world-class Water Patrol at REAL Watersports had no problem changing features as needed to make the most of each day. We witnessed technical slider riding, stratosphere breaking kicker hits and tight competition strategy in the REAL Slick. Rigging big was the name of the game and riders who prepared nailed their tricks, scored well, and podiumed.

The level of professional riding is at an all-time high in 2018 and crowning the champions was no easy feat. It takes a high level of technicality and willingness to risk it all to reach the top of the podium. All of the riders had moments of brilliance and a shot at the title. In the end, amplitude and technicality took top honors. In 5th Place we have Alex Maes and Colleen Carroll. The 4th place finishers are previous champion, Sam Light and Triple-S Veteran, Sensi Graves. 3rd place is locked in by a few Kite Park League young bloods, Noe Font & Annelous Lammerts. The second place podium is held by previous champion Ewan Jaspan and the Spanish phenom, Julia Castro. Finally, in first place, after many years of sending it huge, Brandon Scheid locked it down for the Men’s Division and Karolina Winkowska will be taking the big check for the Women’s Division.

It was an incredible year to be at the Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational. We had musical guests such as Ky-Mani Marley, 2 Chainz, The Dubplates & The Roots providing incredible parties. The riders showed the highest level of professionalism and everyone had a great time. Don’t miss next year’s Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational at REAL Watersports June 1st – 7th, 2019. The World Is Not Ready.

The Flyn Bay Bash, Poland’s first ever Kite Park event, was an amazing success!
