Rodrigues International kitesurf Festival

 Rodrigues International kitesurf Festival

First time I came to Rodrigues, was in 2004 following the invitation of Jerome Branellec the kitesurfing pioneer.

Jerome had set up a school her website here

200km2 of flat lagoon, wind blowing from May to October-November, all combine make this island a paradise for kitesurfing.

10 years later, the Rodrigues KiteSurfing Association was born, with the launching point for an international kite festival.

It is with great pleasure that I went back for the 5th time in this lagoon.

The festival was directed by young organizers, John Christ, Andy, Axel, and they did really really good.

Downwind of 30km, 10km slalom and freestyle competition, everything only with a Twin Tip.

With Charlotte Consorti, Nico Kux we were judging the frestyle. The level was high, especially with some young Mauritian, but locals were on,like “Lolotte”, winner of the event, which I hope will be one day, competing around the world

Downwind: 1) Jean de Falbaire 2) Michael Leopold 3) Drany Clair

Freestyle: 1) Simon Lamusse 2) Michael Leopold 3) Loukas Pitot

Upwind, Mini Raid 1) Michael Leopold 2) Jonathan Agathe 3) Louka Pitot

Women: 1) Zohra Sophie 2) Helene Lucas 3) Caroline Bavajee

Thanks to the organizers, Jane from the Mourouk, Laurent and Air France team.
