North Kiteboarding invitational 2016 Barcares France
Last week end of june was held the NKB invitational in Barcares, south of France, organized by Surfone Leucate and Stephane Negrier.
Northkiteboarding material testing, strapless coaching with Matchu Lopes and Ralph Boelen, games, parties… heavy program. Here’s a portofolio of the week end.
Matchu seriously busy with some riders ^^ and Raplh learning us flamenco dance, great fun !
It was also a good opportunity to test the NKB gear : the Dice, the Neo and the Mono in the Tramontane, the local wind…from nothing to 30 kts, NW or W 10 sec after.
After the theory we tried to follow the strapless masters to pull out front rolls. We probably need a whole week of coaching to succed 😉 At this time you understand your limits and what seperate you from the worldclass level.
Matchu Lopes and Ralph Boelen (also Aaron Adlow and Antoine Clerc) nail every tricks in these poor sailing conditions. Flat and gusty…that’s insane !
Time to play, party, and relax, Thank you NKB and Surfone!
