Tom Court takes us behind the scenes as 17-year-old Colombian shredder, Valentin Rodriguez, claims the GKA Freestyle World Champion win in Brazil!

One of the best things about having had such a long career within the kiteboarding industry is to see the changes that have happened, been part of the scene through many different world champions and had the pleasure to share time with them as they dominate the scene and bring their styles to the sport.

Now is the start of a new era as Valentine Rodrigues takes the GKA world freestyle championship by storm, an unexpected win on his first year on the world tour. He has a natural talent for the sport! I was at the event to film for my Duotone youtube series #teamtalk and document the rise of the first-ever Duotone Men’s world freestyle champ as he takes the win on his first year…

This is behind the scenes out in #brazil with friends and me as we warm-up for the event and celebrates afterwards! After this, I am heading back home to the UK before gearing up for the Cape Town season and visiting my good friends at Dirty Habits HQ – Tom Court
