First Combined Big Air Battle at GKA Freestyle World Cup Fuerteventura

On July 23, 2019   |   By kiteworldmag.com

4 strapless freestylers and 4 kiteboarders poised for action at Playa de Sotavento

The main freestyle competition rounded out yesterday at the GKA Fuerteventura as Adeuri Corniel won the mens division after an absolutely blinding final heat against Maxime Chabloz, Gianmaria Coccoluto and Carlos Mario.

The actions not over yet though and today eight riders competing in mixed teams of four (consisting of two kiteboarders and two strapless freestylers) will do battle here in Sotavento to see who can pull off the best big air moves.

Conditions are looking prime, with pumping winds already blowing across Playa de Sotavento, and the heats will alternate with strapless freestylers and kiteboarders competing in separate heats until the top riders hit the water together for a mixed discipline mega-final.

Obviously, big air takes on a whole different dimension on a kiteboard as it does on a surfboard, so its set to be a pretty epic display of high altitude ability.

The livestream fires up at 12:30 and you can tune in below!
