Once again we came with the PKRA to the south of France/Leucate, where the Mondial du Vent was held.
As every rider know, the spot in La Franqui is one of the most difficult places to kite on tour. Strong off-shore wind and cold temperature are obstacles that we have to struggle with during the competition.
However everybody love Leucate, because of the french food, wine, beautiful localization, the buzz and other french specialties that make the competition week pleasurable :)
This year the wind was severe, and so strong that, after the trials we had to postpone the main event one day later so the wind could have calmed down a little bit. During my heats I was still using a 5m kite and I was struggling to do tricks because it was so windy.
Eventually, I got 2nd place which I am very happy about, because I had shown my best in the conditions like that. In Poland we call it a storm, but here they call it a tramontane wind.
The competition finished after 3 days, which made it one of the best events ever. Another 3 days that were reserved for the event we spent on relaxing, sun tanning, wakeboarding and enjoying amazing vacation in France.
