GKA Freestyle World Cup Leucate

Interviews at the Mondial du Vent 2019

First Freestyle Kiteboarding World Cup event of the year is done and dusted! It was a great event for 2019 Mondial du Vent!

Back to Leucate, France, for the first time since two years, and it hasn’t changed much! The same sleepy beach town, just as I remember it…. Last time I visited Leucate was for the 2017 World Cup, where we were incredibly lucky to get good wind each day. This year was a little different, as we saw 4 days of no wind at all, and had to move the entire set-up to a new location for days 5 and 6! If you have seen what a Case Productions live stream set-up looks like, you will understand that this was no easy job! Anyways, the guys pulled it off somehow, running the whole live from a van, the judges up in a lifeguard tower, the scoring screen was brought over by truck, and somehow things ran smooth as ever! It takes a great team to pull of stuff like this!

Check out the highlights from the event:

Day One:

Day Five:

… and of course, the FINALS:

It was a great first event for the GKA Kite World Tour and a chance for the new merged WKC/GKA team to work together and get to know each other. Next stop – Gran Canaria in June!
