Claudia Leon wasn’t expecting much when she came to her first Elite World Tour event in Akyaka ,Turkey last year. She had already participated in a few of the Qualifier events, but it was her first time in with the big competitors, and her mission was to do her best and see how she could hold it down next to the biggest female names in kiteboarding. She was on fire throughout that event, and climbed all the way into the finals, finishing in 4th place, which was an amazing achievement for the young Spaniard.
This has lead to Claudia attending almost all of the current tour events, except for when it coincides with her exams. It’s not easy to combine full time school with training and competing, but this young talent is doing a fantastic job of it. So let’s find out a little more about Claudia Leon….
