The second PKRA event of this year was finished successfully for me again, with 2nd place. The event in Leucate (Look out) la franqui is one of the hardest event of the year. With super strong and gusty tramontan wind and low air temperatures. Nonetheless, we had to show our best sides and did a great performance for the spectators who were there during the Mondial du Vent. This year we also had a great livestream with Dave Tybursky on the microphone and the new scoring system, to show everybody around the world what this sport is really about.
The single elimination was epic, with wind blowing 25-45 knots, easy to choose a kite :) 5m kite fully de-powered. My kite launching strategy was to put my boots tight at the beach, and then wait for someone to pass me a kite that, like a real slingshot was immediately shooting me in to the water. hahahahahah, that was really funny :p
The double elimination was the opposite. The weather was switching every 10min. Sun, no sun, clouds, rain, wind, no wind, cold, warm etc. Eventually I had to pump all set of kites 5,6,7,9 and 11 to be ready for only 7min heat. My heats with Asia, Bruna and Gisela you could have seen live on live.prokitetour.com, if you didn’t, than you missed it sorry … I heard that I was riding pretty sick :).
It was amazing landing every trick with the crowd screaming at the beach. Thanks for the support :)
