Just came back from competing at the last stop from the Kite Park League, the “World Tour” of kiteboarding on sliders. This year we had 3 stops:
– Triple S Invitational (where I got the 2nd place)
– Patagonia Hood Jam (where I got another 2nd place)
The last stop took place in the Brasilian location of Icapuí, at the posada ‘Kite Mansion‘. And, it was the stop we were all waiting for since it’s happening in kiteboarding paradise, Brasil! To be honest, the set up was way harder than I expected but, it was definitely a new challenge and it’s motivated me to learn a lot more things.
Like always, there’s a bit of drama. If I had made it in 2nd place at the #kitemansionopen I would have won the KPL but, with the 4th place I got, I managed to stay on the position I’ve stayed all year long: 2nd overall.
Obviously, I have a bit of a bittersweet feeling since winning would have been awesome but, on the other hand, I can’t be happier to bring home a 2nd place when this is my first year doing all the stops 🙂
Thanks a lot to the organizers of this event, it was epic. And, thanks a lot to my sponsors, without you I wouldn’t have done it:
See you in the water,
