Just in case you missed it – we’ve got you covered! It was another insane day of intense action on the water as stormy Sylt continued to deliver the goods. The competition started bright and early, with the women’s heats straight on the water. The conditions started off around 25 knots, with the wind forecast to increase throughout the day: perfect conditions for the finals of the GKA Kitesurf World Cup to go down. So, how did it go down?
Capucine Delannoy (FRA) dominated the heat against her opponent Peri Roberts (AUS) on the women’s side. Delannoy landed her signature double front roll in her heat. This is the first time a woman has landed this trick in competition.
