GKA BRAZIL TOUR STOP
In Northeast Brazil, the final event of the season of the Copa Kitley GKA Kite-Surf World Cup went down, ultimately deciding the World Champion for 2022.
James’ semi-final heat against Gabriele Benetton (BRA) started with a broken leash for the Aussie in the first few minutes on a 313 attempt, followed by a big swim and three (!!) more gear changes, including a broken board after a massive bankroll kite loop as well as swapping between freestyle and wave gear. In the final moments of a heat that didn’t quite go as planned for James, the gladiator from Down Under nailed the 313 that caused him the drama early on in the heat, earning him an epic 8.43 that also secured him the back-to-back world title.
WE ARE SO PROUD AND PUMPED FOR YOU JAMES, DOUBLE WORLD CHAMPION, WHAT A LEGENDARY EFFORT!
Also Pedro and Matchu, you guys charge so hard, we’re immensely stoked to have you on our team and congratulations for finishing second Pedro and Matchu for fourth.
