The World Junior Kitesurf Championships is curreuntly happening in Spain.
WOW! The future looks bright yesterday Anthar Racca – U17 boy from Mexico – just landed the first ever Double Half Cab Mobe in competition! The Airush Kiteboarding grom is really pushing things to a new level, the top pros on the senior tour have been in a race to land this trick but have been pipped to the post by a youngster on the youth tour.
Airforce focus has been mainly on the under 15 boys section not to say across the board all categories haven’t been putting on a show and dazzling the crowds with there talent. However this particular category showcases three riders we have the pleasure of watching grow at our favorite spots around the globe. Obviously we must with national pride be looking out for the reigning champion GBR rider Tom Bridge, however this division also sees Boracay local Christian Tio last years vice champion squaring up again. Both riders have advanced and fingures crossed could be heading for a repeat of last years final. We watched Christian here in Boracy progress at an inredible rate last season and seen him push top level pro senior riders from the world tour in both the Boracay funboard cup and the PKA Boracay leg. We also had our eye on Van Der Spuy grom from our South Africa friends at Best in Cape Town who unfortunately got knocked out however we are sure he grew massively as a kiteboarder and will be back again stronger and wiser. For now we are waiting and watching to see who will be this years champion in this division good luck to those still left in.
Next on our radar is the talented 10 year old female Brazil rider Mikaili Rocha. Mikaili passed the trials in Barra Grande (Brazil) last year against seniors and impressed spectators, showing to everyone that things are in safe hands for Brazil. She is progressing well to so lets see how she goes.
