Good evening everyone and welcome to the Kite Globing / C-Beach Club spot at Bel Ombre in the southeast corner of the beautiful island of Mauritius. This is the second double event of three this season that will see both the Freestyle and Kite-Surf disciplines on the GKA Kite World Tour take place over the following ten days.
The Men’s Kite-Surf round one began today – find the summaries of the eight heats that ran on that link.
Stand out rider of the day was on the water in the first heat, Brazilian Pedro Matos. Smooth, powerful and confident, his vertical strikes and sense of finding the gap to get one more lip smack in as well as his ability to pick out the biggest waves of the session were very impressive.
