KTE News:Windless third day in Castelldefels

Written by KTE on . Posted in News

The MINI Kitesurf Tour Europe carried on today with no wind and a sense of brief relaxation matched with anticipation, as riders prepared for the last windy day of competition on sunday. According to the forecasts for tomorrow, good wind will be present for the last final day.

Considering this, today proved to be a day of mental and logistical preparation. 

 

Racing participants made sure that their gear was properly ready for some upcoming wind during the day, while freestyle riders could be seen scattered throughout the event site, catching up with friends and enjoying the cloudy and also sunny day. With a comfortable event area to spend their downtime, some riders even pulled out some SUP action, while others took advantage of the cool calm water – wakeboarding with a simple winch for a little entertainment and amusement. 


In anticipation of the BBQ tonight and the final day tomorrow, competitors commented that this event is a great time. Event sponsors MINI, Red Bull and Chupa Chups also represented themselves well on the beach, despite the unfavorable conditions, as they displayed flags, tents, and an encouraging presence at the event site. The popular Castelldefels has also shown itself to be a welcoming destination for kite competitors. Numerous spectators and riders took note of the friendly atmosphere, hospitable attitude, and overall pleasant ambience of this scenic place.

 

Tomorrow, riders will arrive to the beach at 9am for the last MINI KTE skipper’s meeting of the year. Wind is expected to range from 15-20 knots in the southwest direction. To stay update, have a look on SPOTFAV Livestram or on Facebook and Twitter.
