05-03-2022 13:30- Men’s Finals are Complete!

The Men’s Final was full of off the charts action!! The crowd was fired up and the beach was packed. Gianmaria Coccoluto (ITA) v. Manoel Soares (BRA) v. Carlos Mario (BRA)  v. Juan Rodriguez (COL). It was a nail biter all the way to the end. 

Juan Rodriguez was feeding off the crowd and laid down an incredible heat with top scoring tricks of a 317 and double Hinterberger Front 5. In his final trick attempt of the heat, he needed an 8.8 to overtake Carlos Mario. He landed a super technical and clean backside 317 but didn’t quite get the score and ended in 3rd place. Carlos Mario landed a 317 and threw a Hinterberger Front 7, scoring 7.6 and an absolutely massive backside 317 scoring 7.9. 

Gianmaria Coccoluto went huge!! He landed a super technical 319 scoring a 8.37 and a slim chance 7 scoring a 9.20–the highest score of the heat! Unfortunately he couldn’t land a fourth trick and therefore ended in 4th place despite an otherwise killer performance. 

Soares had smooth, clean landings and showed incredible kite control as he sent it to the moon, landing a powerful Slim Chance 7, 319, backside 317 and heart attack 5 for a total heat score of 30.14 and securing himself the win!

Women’s Finals with Bruna Kajiya (BRA) taking on Rita Arnaus (ESP), Mikaili Sol (BRA)  and Estefania Rosa (BRA). Conditions were strong and the women were powered on 6-9meter kites. The heat started with Estefania Rosa landing a solid 313, and Hinterberger mobe. It was a close heat with Rita Arnaus landing a super clean Slim Chance scoring a 7.37 and backing it up with a s-bend to blind with an air pass.Veteran Bruna Kajiya laid down a solid heat with a Slim chance followed up with a textbook back mobe and finally a Hinterberger mobe with her kite super low. She was the heat leader until Mikaili Sol managed to land her go-tricks including a colossal Slim Chance 5, 315 and Hinterberger Mobe 5–setting herself apart from the rest of the field with her huge air, technicality and style.

Women’s Finals are up next with Bruna Kajiya (BRA) taking on Rita Arnaus (ESP), Mikaili Sol (BRA)  and Estefania Rosa (BRA).

05-03-2022 11:55am- Heat two kicked off with Carlos Mario (BRA)  battling against Juan Rodriguez (COL), Guilherme Costa (BRA), and Valentin Rodriguez (COL). The heat started out at the top of the ladder with Costa, who landed a beautiful slim 7. Valentin was battling a stretched bicep from the day before and wasn’t quite able to keep it together on his landings. Mario and Rodriguez went back and forth as heat leaders. Carlos Mario rode with his usual power and amplitude, landing a 317, and double Heart Attack and his highest scoring trick, a Hinterberger 7, scoring a 7.57. Crowd favorite and Colombian rider Juan Rodriguez landed a beautiful double Hinterberger mobe 5, a clean 317 and finally a Slim Chance 7 for a total heat score of 29.70.

05-03-2022 11:25am- Coccoluto displayed tons of speed as he launched himself into the air, landing a grabbed slim chance 7, scoring 8.7–the highest score of the heat! Chabloz started off with a Seatbelt mobe 5 to display style and perfect execution for a high scoring 7.9, followed up with a gigantic 3.19. 

Martinez went huge but couldn’t quite stick the landings needed to advance. Maxime also bobbled a few landings and unfortunately did not score high enough to move on. The story of the heat was Manoel Soares, who doesn’t currently have a kite sponsor but nonetheless demonstrated perfect execution, smooth style and most importantly consistency! His first trick, a huge 319 on the inside, scored an 8.07! He followed that up with a backside 317, scoring 8.43, a huge, clean slim chance 9.

Soares and Coccoluto move onto the finals!!
