      Champions are Crowned!
      The 2019 KPL season comes to a close after an insane week of competition at the Kite Mansion Open presented by Wind Voyager Authentic Apparel.

      1). 2019 Kite Park League
      The perfectly consistent wind in Icapui made for high level action for the final at the Kite Mansion Open!  All the riders threw down some amazing tricks led by Alex Maes dropping the highest scoring Rail Line and Christophe Tack stomping a Heel Front 9 off the kicker!  However, one high trick score would not be enough as consistency would win the day with Spanish Duotone rider Noè Font coming out on top with clean and technical hits on all the features which included the highest Port Rail Line where he greased a Switch Front 3 Back 5050 - Pretzel Back 1 out followed by a Front Board 450 out!

      2). 2019 Kite Park League
      Ewan Jaspan would once again take 2nd place by less than a point, this time 0.35.  He would have the last laugh though, looking down from the Throne as the KPL Champion for the first time! Christophe would take 3rd ahead of Alex by only 0.06, ascending him to the rank of Vice KPL Champion over Noe by just 0.8 tour points!

      3). 2019 Kite Park League
      In the women's division the battle for the KPL championship was incredibly close.  Helena Brochocka showed consistent riding and made her first KPL podium with a 3rd place and also took 3rd Place Overall for 2019.  Annelous Lammerts and Karolina Winkowska came into the event tied with an event win each, so whoever took the win here in Icapui would take the crown.  The final started with both landing Toe Back 5s off the first kicker.  They are still the only female riders to land double handle passes in KPL competitions. After the Starboard Rail Line the difference between them was 0.17, the battle couldn’t have been closer!  Karolina answered with a Heel Back 3 off the 2nd kicker and Annelous matched with a Toe Back 3 Tail Grab. Despite the grab, Karolina went a bit bigger and took a 0.1 advantage. It all came down to the last feature, the Port Rail Line. Annelous would remain consistent to take the win by a whole point and claim her second KPL Championship!

      GET READY!
      Less than two weeks to go until the
      Kite Mansion Open presented by Wind Voyager Authentic Apparel

      1). The 2019 Kite Mansion Open
      The Kite Mansion Open is back for it’s second year and once again the Kite Park League Champions will be crowned in Icapuí, Brazil.  With both the men's and women's division rankings super tight, the final stop of the 2019 season is set to be one to remember!
      The Kite Mansion Open, the only competition of the year with metal rails and a unique line format, will put the best park riders from over 10 different nationalities to the test.  Bringing a park event to Brazil has always been a top priority for event organizers Alex Maes & Annelous Lammerts. With consistent wind and butter flat water combined with the Kite Mansion Park, there couldn’t be a better place for the final stop of the 2019 Kite Park League Tour!

      2). The 2019 Kite Mansion Open
      Leaving the beaches in a better condition than we found them is one of the top priorities at the KPL. The Kite Mansion Open will kick off with two massive beach clean-ups presented by kitesurf.org on the 14th and 15th of September. With the support of kitesurf.org there will be 220 new mangrove trees to plant so the riders can continue planting the KPL forrest in Icapuí. Mangrove trees are extremely important for the biodiversity, maintaining water quality, coastal defense and carbon storage to reduce our carbon footprint.
