Following the first stage in Essaouira, Morocco, the African Mecca, the Guincho Wave Masters World Cup “Europeen Mecca” is the second leg of this year KPWT wave riding circuit and sure to be one of the highlights of the 2007 Wave Masters World Cup season with forecasts around 30 knots and 3 metres waves announced.
Indeed, the last edition 06 of this discipline proved very successfull, so this is with great pleasure that the KPWT team will descend upon Portugal and the spot of Guincho, which, besides offering all the required wave riding conditions for a pro-level competition. The opportunity for the top best pro kiteboarders to gain points and fight for the Wave Masters title.
During this event, the whole kitesurf world will be focusing on the best wave riders and their feats in these extreme conditions.
Jose Luengo (SPA),and Ainhoa Garcia World Champion 2006, will defend they World title.
His Spanish challengers Abel Lago, winner of the Essaouira wave Masters 07, Antoine Auriol and Vincent Tiger from France, Bruno Mello from Portugal third in Essaouira, among others, will do their best to show their talent in waves.
This contest will be also an opportunity to watch the portuguese wave riding style, with many local riders.
Moreover, the competing board presents some international riders worth being aware of : Clinton Bolton, Greg Thisse from South Africa among others .
As far as the women are concerned, we’ll probably have the thrilling pleasure to attend a new duel opposing Kirsty Lones (UK) vs. Ainho Garcia (Spain), and Kristin Boese (Ger). Unless the spanish Noelia Nuñez or Paloma Gerrero would turn this scheme upside down and create the surprises.
