Your Mood kite cup.

 Your Mood kite cup.

I went to Switzerland this week to be a judge on the Your Mood Kite Cup.
Your Mood is one of my partners, and they had the idea to organize a contest on a “waiting period” of one month, to be sure to get some good wind the day of the contest.

Monday, i received a text message from Switzerland with an appointment Wednesday in the city of Yvonand on Lake Neuchatel.
I found a train, despite all the French strikes, and here I am in the chocolate country .

On Wednesday, riders came from Europe, like Mallory de la Villemarqué my North teammates, Romain Luppi, Goody … and the photographer Bertrand Boone.
Many journalists came also, it is rather rare here to get Kitesurf events.
But the wind stayed at home in the mountains, and it was pretty cold. We improvise a campfire on the beach with hot wine …

The next day, same light wind, we launch some heat, but the wind does not allow riders to go upwind.
The wind is teasing us, staying around 12 knots.

The competition is postponed on Sunday, I won’t be back cause I leave for Mauritius for 2 weeks.

Otherwise congratulations to Alex Caizergues, Charlotte Consorti, Seb Catman, for their performance at the speed challenge in Luderitz … 54.10knots, 100km / h on water with a kitesurf.
