On this last day of competition everybody on the beach has the same word coming to

their mind : GREAT ! FABULOUS ! Ideal conditions at the begining ! Can’t wait to be

next year !!!

 

The 2008 Vendée Kitesurf Pro will definitely stay in everybody’s memory /

  a.. About 50 competitors coming from all around the world 

  b.. More than 20 nationalities (Australia, France, Republic Dominican, US, Norway,.) 

  c.. 4 disciplines run in 6 days (Freestyle, Wave, Course Racing, Best trick) 

  d.. Numerous trophies 

  e.. An extraordinary show

 

The most famous stars of Kitesurfing made the journey to Saint-Gilles Croix de Vie

and guaranteed the show on the water. At the beginning of this season, a phenomena

stands out: new talents arrive on the Kiteboard Pro World Tour and shake the top of

the ranking.

 

The American Hawaïan, Jesse Richman, is astonishing : just 15 and already winner of

one event of the KPWT !

Let’s also congratulate the excellent performance of Mitu Monteiro from Cabo Verde !

A special thank you to the guys from Cabarete . A great spirit and what a talent!

 

On the women side, Kirsty Jones from UK really surprised everybody in the Waves.

And Ania Grzelinska from Poland also stands out all through the competition.

 

Looking at the results of this first event we can expect and imagine an exciting

season 2008 on the KPWT !

 

Keep in touch and see you on the next round in Greece, Paros, from the 19th to the

25th of June.
