Leucate Kiteboarding Grand Slam - Day One

The first day of the Mondial Du Vent saw a total of 60 riders from 19 different countries gathered for the opening ceremony in celebration of competing in one of the worlds longest running Kiteboarding events. Mondial Du Vent is literally the “festival of the wind”, every year promoting Kiteboarding as it’s main event, front and center.

Even though there was little chance for wind today the tension between the athletes was high. With a return to competition for Liam Whaley and rumors circulating about Adeuri Corniel (Ariel Corniels younger brother) riding at a very high level, it’s clear that this competition will be exciting for both the spectators and top seeded men alike.

On the Womens side of the draw there was a noticeable absence of Karolina Winkowska (last events winner), which surprised a few riders, there was however the addition of a few riders not present at the last event. Dioneia Vieira, Francesca Bagnoli, Mika Sol are three such Women and they will no doubt push hard to fill the gap left by Winkowska and give the already top seeded women something to fight for. Mika Sol from Brazil is competing in her very first championship event, with a strong presence in recent Junior events it will be interesting to see what this rising star can do.

Tomorrows forecast looks enticing with a chance of wind from early on the riders will have a skippers meeting at nine o’clock sharp. We wish all the riders the best for this event, good luck and safe riding to all!
