Jeep Tarifa Pro – Kite-Surf World Tour – Day 3 Action

Published 28th June 2018 by dannykater

 

THE KSWT STRAPLESS CREW’S LATE-LATE SHOW AT THEIR SPIRITUAL CONTEST HOME!

Once again we were waiting till the late afternoon but the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour riders were finally called upon to create the show with their strapless skills in around 15-18 knots. At the site of the first world strapless competition five years ago, the big upset for the crowds was Simon Joosten from Barbados ousting Keahi de Aboitiz from the single elimination in his first heat!

 

 

Among the other highlights, Matchu Lopes pieced together a complicated new trick, called a front roll to rodeo with a board varial revert… we think! Anyway, the crowd loved it and we hope to see it again (look out for the video)! Then, in quickly dropping winds, Airton Cozzolino stepped up in the final heat of round two to prove that he barely needs wind to stomp tricks, like his signature flat 3 and more.

The other positive: with just 16 riders left in the single elimination, a valid result stands for those riders and they can take points away. If the Poniente and thermal combine positively again tomorrow, we will have both the Air Games and Kite-Surf World Tour running alongside each other!
