GKA Strapless Freestyle Grand Slam – Fuerteventura – Day 1

Video from the first official training session from the 2016 GKA Strapless Freestyle event in Fuerteventura.

The GKA event team and strapless freestyle tour riders have arrived at Sotavento in Fuerteventura at the Rene Egli kitesurfing and windsurfing spot for six days of what should be incredible strapless freestyle competition for round two of the GKA Wave and Strapless Freestyle tour.

17 riders registered for the contest this morning and this afternoon they had the opportunity to warm up and get used to the conditions here in front of the crowds. The rest of the week has strong winds forecast for each afternoon, presenting different opportunities as well as challenges for the riders in this new discipline.

The event team at Rene Egli have been running windsurfing world cup events here for 31 years and elite kitesurfing world championship events for the last 12 years. It’s certainly iconic in terms of its history. Let’s hope we can make some more this week!
