BKSA 2013 Round1 Essex

Just come back from the 1st Round of the 2013 UK KiteLandBoarding Freestyle Championship in Essex.

We had super strong wind all days, about 20 to 30 knots, good opportunity to ride hard my Speed4 10m!
We did training and free session on Friday 10 May, ripping it on the Kickers and sliders, feel so good to get back on those very nice Ramps...

The night before the comp we did a super cool night session on the Kicker with a lil' spot light which was cool to see the ramp just before going on it, but the landing was scary because we couldn't see very well the ground...

We had a storm wind during the comp, 30 knots, i lost my first heat against the local rider and Ozone team rider "Ash Garwood", after that i won against the UK flysurfer team riders "Greg Chilton" and "Abe Alzouman", then i managed to go to the final against my Flysurfer team mate "Emmanuel Norman" and "Ash Garwood".

The final heat was a warrior heat, we did crazy hangtime and big airs, i only did hooked trix on this one, and Emmanuel landed some very nice mobes (pictures just under)!

I took the 3rd place at this 1st Round, now it's time to concentrate for the next Rounds to try to keep my 2012 UK Champion's title!

Next Round will take place from 8 to 9 June in Suffolk.

Here is a lil' video of me Lewis riding the Essex Kite Park's Kickers on Sunday 12th May during a free-session ;-)
