52 competitors, 39 men and 13 women, registered for the GKA Kite-Surf Cabo Verde yesterday in front of the legendary wave at Ponta Preta. They couldn’t have asked for a better opening day to the season.
Ponta Preta had been firing almost non-stop throughout February and the run of epic conditions has carried over into this week with clean sets building up to double overhead and beyond.
Presented with sizeable sets at yesterday morning’s registration, the riders were amped and day one would see them progress deep into round three in the men’s single eliminations.
