Air Games Germany 2018 – Day Two

After a full afternoon of Kiteboarding World Tour ‘Air Games’ action on the first day, Saturday was scheduled for a start to the women’s competition. An initial start was made just after lunch as a storm front brought more wind, but before the end of heat two, the competition was abandoned with heats cancelled, however that wasn’t the end of the action. Focus instead switched to the second event – the daily Mercedes Benz Kicker Competition – which comes into action in the event of no wind or at the end of the day at beer o’clock. With good prize money up for grabs, the riders are even more keen to put on some entertainment for the big crowds here in Fehmarn. Finishing 3rd in the single elimination main event yesterday, Swiss shredder Maxime Chabloz gained top spot on the kicker today with a frontside 540 behind the ski. Crowned where? In the hot-tub in the Mercedes pick-up truck of course! The kicker comp is purely a fun extension of this event, it doesn’t count towards the World Championship. Here’s a slice of the afternoon antics. Skipper’s meeting is 8am tomorrow with a first possible start for the women at …


Jeep Tarifa Pro 2018 – Day 3 – GKA Kite-Surf World Tour Action

Watch the action video from Day 3 at Valdevaqueros! THE KSWT STRAPLESS CREW’S LATE-LATE SHOW AT THEIR SPIRITUAL CONTEST HOME! Once again we were waiting till the late afternoon but the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour riders were finally called upon to create the show with their strapless skills in around 15-18 knots. At the site of the first world strapless competition five years ago, the big upset for the crowds was Simon Joosten from Barbados ousting Keahi de Aboitiz from the single elimination in his first heat! Among the other highlights, Matchu Lopes pieced together a complicated new trick, called a front roll to rodeo with a board varial revert… we think! Anyway, the crowd loved it and we hope to see it again (look out for the video)! Then, in quickly dropping winds, Airton Cozzolino stepped up in the final heat of round two to prove that he barely needs wind to stomp tricks, like his signature flat 3 and more. The other positive: with just 16 riders left in the single elimination, a valid result stands for those riders and they can take points away. If the Poniente and thermal combine positively again tomorrow, we will have both …


Jeep Tarifa Pro 2018 – Day 1

The Jeep Tarifa Pro 2018 kicks off! Tuesday morning saw the start of what could be a momentous week in world kiteboarding competition as the two GKA World Tours line up to compete at one thrilling event: the Jeep Tarifa Pro 2018. For the last three years this event has staged the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour (a wave and strapless freestyle world tour – the round in Tarifa focuses on the strapless freestyle side of the discipline as there are fewer waves at this time of year). This year the event also welcomes the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour ‘Air Games’ riders as well. That means there will be a total of 90 riders competing in these sunny Valdevaqueros waters in front of an always adoring Tarifan crowd. Report: Jim Gaunt / Photos: Toby Bromwich Source:
