9th PKRA Fuerteventura

Why do things always seem to brake in the worst moment possible? In the single elimination I passed one heat and then was against Kevin Langeree in the next one, did one trick, another one where I didn’t pass the bar and there it went, my kite in direction La Palma. Luckily we have some rescue jet skis here, the guy went for my kite and rescued it, but only after ripping a major hole with his jet ski in the canopy of my brand new 9m Hifi. 

So the double elimination couldn’t go worse could it? Here is how it went: won the first heat, went against Tom Court in the next one, conditions were terrible so both of us didn’t land much, I landed some more so passed, but just before the heat was over, my depower line broke and once again my now repaired 9m went in direction La Palma, but this time got rescued properly. Back at the beach, I realised that I couldn’t bend one of my fingers.  So I went for some ice, a borrowed kite an my bindings board which was still set up for sliders without fins and went against Alvaro, but certainly the wind was way to strong for going finless, the finger to damaged and the kite to different to my Hifis to match Alvaros performance, which was sick by the way.

So in the end its the 9th place for me here, a result I can live with. Can’t wait to leave this crazy conditions and to ride in proper winds and without competition pressure again.
