The 3rd Round of the Virgin Kitesurf World Cup is over. Tarifa provided the goods for a really decent event that had wind almost every day. Moving the event spot to Balneario (closer to town) allowed better conditions for the Levante wind. After the freestyle was wrapped up the Big Air Discipline started.

Riding my 9m Best GP I felt good in the first heat and progressed to the Semi Finals. With the first 2 events of the year running in very light wind, the 30mph easterly was a refreshing change. Switching from the 9m GP to the TS in the last minutes gave me a good score in the boost category, a good tactic. I made the finals for the first time this year but struggled on a 12m in the end. This is the area of big air I really need to improve. Is it time to bring back the board offs? Next event in Fuertaventura 3rd of August.....
