Jalou Langeree and Moona Whyte talk about the finals at Secrets, where Moona took the win at round one of the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2018 in Cape Verde.
Check out the video report from Day 5 of competition in Cape Verde and watch the highlights of the Women’s Finals. On day five of the opening round in Cape Verde, eight women remained in the contest.

After a couple of days of uncertainty, during which wavering conditions had kept the competitors on their toes, the decision was made to move the event to a spot called ‘Secrets’ after race director Juan Antonio recce’d there shortly after sunrise and found consistent shoulder-high waves and steady wind.

Blue has certainly given the riders and the KPL the ultimate park environment.” says judge Alex Rowdy. With the Men’s and Women’s Finals all wrapped up, we spoke with Eric Rienstra about all the epic action that went down. Women’s Heat 2 saw Sensi Graves pull out a few KPL ‘firsts’ with a ledge step up on the North Kiteboarding Box and Frontside 540s both ways on the kicker. Her highest score came on the Rooftop with a 180 Front 5050 Pretzel 270 Back Lip 270 scoring a 6. Colleen Carroll was able to come from behind with the highest scoring port kicker hit and a Toe Back 3 Melan which scored a 4.1. Annelous Lammerts took a relatively safe approach but …
