GKA SUPERFOIL BRASIL KITE HYDROFOIL EVENT: November 10 - 14

Congratulations to American foil sensation from Hood River, Fred Hope, who won the GKA's first hydrofoil freestyle event that took place at Fortaleza. In his regular column in the Kiteworld Winter Edition, Mark Shinn - himself a double World Freestyle Champion in 2002 - comments that:

"What I've really missed this year are the kite competitions. At the moment there is no reference or accurate concept of what foil freestyle could become. I’m sat on the edge of my seat waiting to see what the most talented riders in the world can do when the gloves are off and they’re assembled together in one place to watch, learn and feed off each other. Exciting times are coming for foil riding..."

Watch the round-up video from the final day after a best trick competition, in which you also hear from the event's top two riders: Fred Hope and Charles Brodel.
