KSP Celebrates the End of their Inagural Season

Gathering from 20 countries, an exclusive field of some of the world’s best kite surfers traveled the world to compete for the World Championship title. The battle took 24 men and 12 women to each of the three tour stops: the One Eye Pro in Le Morne, Mauritius; the Pacasmayo Kite Surf Pro in Pacasmayo, Peru; and finally, the Ponta Preta Kite Surf Pro in Santa Maria, Sal Island, Cape Verde.

KSP World Tour Crowns its First World Champions

“We had insane conditions on tour this year,” said KSP rider and Vice President Sky Solbach. “ We scored the most perfect surf ever seen in competition in Mauritius and the longest waves on the planet in Peru.

Waking to strong winds and a meager swell at both Ponta Preta and Secrets, event directors deemed the day’s conditions uncontestable for the KSP’s Kite Surfing World Championships. Rather than forcing a contest in less-than-favorable conditions, a fun laidback expression session ensued — the second consecutive Super Session on this fourth day of the event’s 10-day holding period.

KSP Cabo Verde Day 3: Super Session at Secrets

Strong wind and small, inconsistent surf greeted competitors at the primary contest venue of Ponta Preta for the 8:00a.m. riders meeting. KSP Head Judge Brad Price quickly made the call to move competitors to the back-up location at “Secret Spot” along Sal’s rocky and dusty North Shore.

KSP Cabo Verde Gets Underway

Keeping a close eye on Secrets (the secondary contest site) this morning, contest directors selected Ponta Preta as the most suitable location to commence the Ponta Preta Kite Surf Pro. Indeed, the world-famous break proved to be the best choice, although the inconsistent conditions left the contest largely in standby mode.
