This awesome wrap video of round 2 of the British Kitesurfing Championships gives you a real insight into what it’s like to compete. With challenging conditions all weekend everyone was tested to their limits!

Round 2 of the BKC, run by IKSURFMAG and KITEWORLD MAG in association with the British Kite Sports Association, took place at Southend in Essex on 25th and 26th July 2015.

Conditions were tricky, being light and gusty on Saturday with demanding, shallow waters and then a blustery, wet session almost all day Sunday. As Mike Smith and Rob Claisse pointed out, competition makes you a better rider!
