Kirsty Jones Wins GKA Kite World Cup Dakhla Kite-Surf Division!

Published 13th October 2019 by Jim Gaunt

 

Fresh news from this morning, Kirsty Jones managed to fend off Carla Herrera-Oria in the double elimination final that played out in very difficult conditions. 

Today the format switched back from the combined freestyle and wave scoring of yesterday to pure wave as the wind was too light for freestyle. Given also the small wave conditions, the women brought the battle in close as they tried to get more and more turns, deeper into the shorebreak conditions. 

This is the tenth and final day of the GKA Kite World Cup Dakhla that saw the Freestyle division run at Dakhla Attitude over the first five days and the Kite-Surf competition run at Westpoint in this second half of the event window. 

Airton managed to complete the sixth heat win in his awesome comeback in the double elimination, beating Reece Myerscough in the men’s semi final this morning. It’s high tide now which kills the waves, so we await news of the first possible start for the men’s final between Mitu Monteiro and Airton Cozzolino at 15.00.
