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
