Some 7000 spectators braved the 25-30 knot southeasterly wind to line Kite Beach line in Blouberg, Cape Town and see the world’s big-air kitesurfers take to the sky. And they were duly rewarded with a day filled with action and upsets. Round One Highlights – Lasse Walker was an early standout throwing various big moves to advance all the way to round four for his efforts. – Steven Akkersdijk looked super confident and brought a lot of variety to the party with his 10m kite. – Local boy Ross-Dillon Player put on a big performance but fell short to a rampant Sam Light.
