Expression Session - Day 5 GKA Kite-Surf World Tour

Superheroes touches down and new tricks come out in the Expression Session  -  GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2017 - Round 3: Sotavento

 4th August 2017: Sotavento, Fuerteventura

 

It’s been a solid week of pumping wind here in Sotavento and today the plan was to hold a Big-Air competition in which riders would go for maximum height and 'wow' factor over more technical tricks. However, with the wind not blowing hard enough and the riders warming up on 8-11 metre kites the decision was made to throw an expression session instead.

Main Event Action and Riders Begin to Drop on Day Two - GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2017 - Round 3: Sotavento

1st August 2017: Sotavento, Fuerteventura

A steadily building wind greeted the riders today as they prepared to pitch into the main event. Before round one kicked off a handful of riders competed in three heats to gain their seedings and local riders Kuba Juras (originally from Poland) and German transplant Thorben Jasper looked perfectly at home in the Sotavento conditions while crowd pleaser Luis Brito clearly relished being back in Sotavento nailing a variety of flamboyant tricks from the off.
