Lorenzo Casati Makes History with a Jaw-Dropping Triple Loop

The kitesurfing world is abuzz with excitement as Lorenzo Casati, one of the sport’s rising stars, achieved an incredible feat that will go down in history. Amidst the awe-inspiring conditions in Balneario Tarifa, Spain, where the wind blew at a ferocious 40 to 45 knots, Casati successfully executed a mind-boggling Triple Loop, taking kitesurfing to new heights.

Reuben Lenten, a kitesurfing legend himself, enthusiastically shared his thoughts on Casati’s groundbreaking achievement. “I’ve known Lorenzo for a while now, and I’ve witnessed his determination and skill firsthand. It’s incredible to see him pushing the boundaries of the sport with this Triple Loop. He’s a true innovator and an inspiration to us all.”

Casati, beaming with exhilaration after landing the Triple Loop, expressed his joy and gratitude. “I’ve been dreaming of this trick for a long time, and today the conditions aligned perfectly. It was a mental challenge, but I’ve put in countless hours of training, and I knew I could do it. Landing it was the best feeling ever.”

He went on to acknowledge the support and belief of his father, who has been by his side since the beginning. “My dad has always supported and trusted me. Today, I proved him right, and I owe a lot of this success to him. This is a moment I want to share with him, and I want to say a big thank you.”

Casati also expressed gratitude towards his sponsors, Cabrinha and Dakine, for their unwavering support throughout his journey. “Dakine has been with me from the start, and their dedication has been incredible. I want to extend my deepest thanks to them for believing in me and helping me make my dreams a reality.”

The kitesurfing community also played a crucial role in Casati’s journey, with fellow riders Liam Whaley and Giel Vlught pushing him to new heights. “Liam and Giel have been my mentors, and their encouragement and support mean the world to me. As soon as I landed the trick, they were there to congratulate me. They are legends in their own right, and I’m confident they will achieve their own groundbreaking tricks soon.”

Reflecting on the past and looking to the future, Casati acknowledged the trailblazers who have shaped the sport. “Reuben Lenten, who invented the first mega loop, and Yell, who achieved the first double loop, have been a tremendous influence on me. Now, I’m proud to be a part of this lineage by landing the first Triple Loop. The sport has come a long way, and I’m excited to see where it will go next.”

With the Triple Loop conquered, Casati’s ambitions continue to soar. He’s more motivated than ever to push the boundaries of kitesurfing and set new world-first records. “This achievement has fueled my drive to keep pushing and innovating. I’m eager to hit the training ground and work even harder. My sights are now set on defending my title at King of the Air this year. Winning it again would be a dream come true.”

Lorenzo Casati’s Triple Loop has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the kitesurfing world. It serves as a testament to the sport’s constant evolution and the unwavering dedication of its athletes. As the boundaries are pushed further, we eagerly await the next chapter in kitesurfing’s incredible journey.
