Today the boys have continued leaving great riders in the qualifications and going to the next qualifying rounds the talented kitesurfers Liam Whaley from Spain 🇪🇦 and Andrea Principi from Italy 🇮🇹 who starred in exciting clashes in the men's Big Air Twintip of the Qatar Airways World Championship GKA Big Air Tarifa 🇪🇦 Spain. As leaders in the classification, both demonstrated exceptional control and perfect execution, accumulating high scores in their heats and making it clear to their rivals that they were ready to fight without truce on the beaches of Balneario de Tarifa.
Direct from the penultimate day, with the female and male twintip classifications.
And finally the long-awaited classification for the male twintip final, with the best Big Air riders in the world, although the maneuvers they perform are also valued by the judges, this Big Air modality seeks the best jump combination of height, distance and maneuver done.
The beach of Balneario TARIFA now looks like a world final, with posts at all accessible points, as well as the jetty/bridge that gives access to the Island.
The competition does not give rest, the male twintip and surfboard hits pass with a half day full of spectacular jumps and maneuvers, TV on the GKA Youtube channel, after-dinner and the sofa, although it is nothing like cycling naps 🚴 🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴.
Problems occur in both disciplines with Lorenzo Casati's Cabrinha on Surfboard, doing what we call a bat, the kite turns between the lines looking like the wings of a bat, this error left him out of points passing the Kiko Roig round , in the words of Kiko "It's the best moment of my life, the conditions are crazy and now I'm going to the grand finale". And similar happened with Noah Nicolas's La Duotone in twintip, in Noah's case he was able to recover the kite by only having one side caught with the line, passing the round with a spectacular Double Loop.
Andrea Príncipi and Giel Vlugt do their homework, Lian Whaley changes kite in one of the best battles of the day, his battle partner Cohan Van Duk surpasses him with 97 tenths, the battles with two riders in the water give a better show for the public that now they do approach Balneario spot RATE 🇪🇦.
At the final of the GKA Big Air Tarifa Surfboard Men, 3 Spaniards and an Australian arrived, it's not a joke 😂, James Carew demonstrated with his experience that in the finals you have to be right, the scores of his rivals were far away, there was only one rival Marc Garriga, the Catalan and resident of the city, one more Tarifeño will have the well-deserved second place.
Congratulations to the Surfboard winners.
