Argentina continues to dominate Kiteboarding Youth Olympic Games Qualifiers for “The Americas”

Strong onshore winds brought a slight chill to the air in Cabarete for this fourth day of Junior Olympic trials, but the races continued! Competition started a bit earlier than previous days, with a shift in wind direction to a more onshore angle. Wind speeds started out similar to yesterday, but as competitors moved through the 8th round of eliminations, the wind kicked up a notch. We saw most of our riders switching from the 17m kites they’ve been on all week to 15m. With solid 20 knots today, vs yesterday’s 15, riders were able to demonstrate more of the speed and skill that brought them to these Olympic trials. It was exciting to watch! In the South/Central American Boys division, Argentina’s Geronimo Lutteral continued to hold the top spot. If he continues his performance tomorrow he will most definitely be representing his home country of Argentina in Buenos Aires. His teammate Martin Errazquin-Caldern has a good hold on second, followed by Manoel Soares Dos Santos Neto from Brasil in third. The Argentinian girls’ team also has shown themselves to be a formidable force in this week’s trials. In the South/Central American Girls division, Ona Romani of Argentina still sits …

WKL Cumbuco – Day One – Wildcard Qualifiers

Perfect wind conditions welcomed us for the start of the Wildcard Qualifiers today at Duro Beach, Cumbuco, where the Men’s and Women’s competition was completed, and the two wildcards for the Elite Event were awarded. The level of riding from the national riders in Brazil is incredibly high, and today was an ideal opportunity to showcase the local talent. The Men’s ladder consisted of 3 rounds, a total of 4 heats. The 11 competitors did their best tricks in Rounds 1 and 2, until it came down to the top 6 male competitors for the final. All the athletes fought their hardest with their eye on the prize, but it was Erick Anderson who claimed the win, after crashing only one of his seven trick attempts. This means that the Men’s wildcard goes to Anderson, and he will be competing in the Elite League event starting tomorrow. For the Women’s Qualifier, there was a total of two heats. A first 4 woman heat, followed by a final where the top two would battle it out for entry into the Elite League event. The final of the Wildcard Qualifier came down to two competitors, Dioneia Vieria, an experienced competitor, and young …


The Qualifiers Kick-Off On Day Two In Dakhla

A steady wind and a growing swell greeted the GKA crew at Foum La Bouir on Wednesday morning as the riders met in the Dakhla Westpoint sports centre to be briefed by Race Director Juan Antonio Aragon. With eight places still available in the main event, the plan for Wednesday was to complete all of the qualifying heats with a single elimination round, followed by a double elimination in which the 16 riders yet to qualify would compete in four and then two man heats. Rather than split the judging criteria between strapless freestyle and waveriding, the decision was made to keep today’s heats 100% wave-focused and the first riders were on the water at 11.30 am. James Carew Australian James Carew, who competed here in Dakhla last year, attacked the shore break with his customary muscular riding style while Brazilian riders Filippe Ferreira and Sebastian Ribeiro looked perfectly at home in the side-shore beach break conditions, both of them stylishly executing wave-360s and driving their fins free of the lip at every opportunity. Theo Demanez, from St Martin in the Caribbean, also impressed riding with the poise and precision of someone well beyond his years (he’s only 17)! Sebastian …
