We always wondered just how good the performances and action could be when the world’s best freestyle kiters were pitted against each other in conditions that are about as perfect as you can get. The final freestyle stop of the Qatar Airways GKA Kite World Tour season got off to an incredible start on day one.
There’s no forgetting that there’s a world title up for grabs, with Manoel Soares and Mikaili Sol in the driving seats for the male and female titles respectively, but it feels like we’re in for a real festival of pure freestyle this week in Brazil.
The women were released for the day and we started with the men. In contention for the title are Manoel Soares (tour leader) who is followed by Gianmaria Coccoluto, Juan Rodriguez, Carlos Mario and Arthur Guillebert. Read more about the scenarios for claiming the men’s and women’s titles here.
