The penultimate day of the contest on the North Sea at Dunkerque began with only the men’s semi-finals and final left to complete. The women’s champion, Bruna Kajiya from Brazil, had already been crowned on the competition’s second day.
The wind had been consistently light and incontestable for the men on the third day. However, the fourth day brought a 14 to 15 knots south-westerly cross-offshore breeze, which allowed the semi-finals to kick off.
The spotlight was on four men – Gianmaria Coccoluto (ITA), Maxime Chabloz (SUI), Arthur Guillebert (FRA), and Carlos Mario Bebe (BRA) – as they engaged in the finals’ showdown at the GKA Freestyle-Kite World Cup in Dunkerque, France. The competition was evenly poised after these four men executed impressive opening tricks, promising an exciting contest. Unfortunately, the heat was suspended midway as the wind teasingly died down.
With only one day of competition remaining, there was a chance to complete the event and determine a winner. However, the wind on the fifth and final day of the world cup failed to manifest, resulting in all four athletes sharing equal first places, each earning 835 points. This situation makes the race for the World Champion Title even more intriguing, with everything now hinging on the last two events in Brazil and Qatar.
