It is the most extreme, fun, and the best way to show what kiteboarding is all about and how kiteboarding really meant to all of us. The vibe around the beach shore is just magical and exquisite. It will be a total knockout event for next year.”
“There are twenty-four best big air kiteboarders in the world that are ready to compete for the title and they are pushing themselves and each other to go bigger and bigger for all what it takes. With just about that thinking, it gets me so fired up and thinking of better ways for the skills to do. I’ve been training a bunch this year to prepare myself even better than last year so I can hopefully defend my title in 2015,” he added.
