      This season's first World Kite League event ended yesterday in El Gouna, Egypt. There were no surprises as from the very beginning of the competition it wasn't that difficult to guess who's going to play major roles in the race for victory. Male rivalry was all about four contestants: Carlos Mario (BRA, Slingshot), Youri Zoon (NED, Slingshot), Alex Pastor (ESP, Airush) and Aaron Hadlow (GBR, North). The final round between Carlos and Youri turned out to be the winning round for Carlos. Karolina Winkowska (POL, Slingshot) and Bruna Kayija (BRA, Airush) got to women's finals  and although the Brazilian seemed to be in the stronger position at first, Karolina was the final female winner in El Gouna.
      Watch men and women's finals below. Soon, our gallery will be packed with photos from El Gouna so stay alert!

      An early start once again saw riders in the water at 7am, with the forecast dropping around midday this was the best possible chance to complete a full Freestyle draw.

      Luckily the Forecast was right and riders had a great a great three hours of solid wind on the water. Conditions were almost as good as it gets at the Element Watersports spot with a steady twenty knots and a small wind chop through the event area.

      The day started slow with a single man heat with only Tonijuan on the water. Martinez suffered an ankle injury the day previous and couldn’t compete. We wish Martinez all the best and hopefully see him on the water again soon!

      The slow start wasn’t a sign of things to come though as competition in both the Men’s and Women’s draw was fierce! Round 4 was the losers round and the last chance for all the riders to land themselves a place in the final rounds.

      Both Tonijuan and Neto joined Val Garat and Cloetens advancing through to round five.

      1). Alex Pastor
      In the Women’s draw it was both Taabbel and Novotna both showing a more consistent heat taking out Soloveykina and Whitely respectively.

      Round five for most is the most important round of the competition, a loss (last in the heat) in round five will see you exiting the competition.

      In the Women’s draw whether you come first or second in round five will now land you in the winners or losers final respectively. Whilst in the Men’s round five only the first place getter will progress to the finals. It’s a cut-throat draw and it was clear that all riders knew this well.

      Both Men and Women’s round five draws saw what could be regarded as the most competitive heats of the event. Unsurprisingly though it was the top seeds in every heat of both Men’s and Women Round Five that came through on top. Experience is a big part of competition and todays results only showed us how a composed approach to a stacked heat can give a rider the result needed.

      2). Annabel van Westerop
      In the Women’s Draw it was to be a classic Winkowska vs Kayija final whilst Van Westerop and Taabbel would battle it out for third and fourth places.

      Van Westerop showed that her new kites weren’t holding her back riding a consistent heat over Taabbel including a nice a BS313 and Frontmobe which secured her a deserved 3rd position. Taabbel went out hard but couldn’t stick her biggest tricks. Taabbel is only new on tour but she’s no doubt got a great future ahead of her, congratulations on a deserved 4th place finish!

      3). Karolina Winkowska
      The final with Winkowska vs Kayija was as to be expected, both ladies came out going huge! Kayija landing a big Backside 313 to start with Winkowska going even bigger but crashing out hard. From Early on it looked as though Kayija may have the upper hand, landing more tricks and showing us a power that we hadn’t seen often after her knee injury. It was Winkowskas big clean Backmobe that was the turning point of the heat though, slowly reeling Kayija back in afterwards. Kayija was going for it hard attempting massive Frontmobes but coming up short with each attempt, at one point catching a massive edge which may have rattled her a little bit. Both girls finished strong with lovely Front to Blinds and Back to Blinds but it would be Winkowska narrowly edging out Kayija this time and taking the win. Kayija placed a deserved second, had she landed her Front mobe the outcome may well have changed. Surely this wont be the first time we see these two meet this season.
      The Men’s Semi Finals were a heat full of World Champions, with Hadlow vs Zoon and Pastor vs Mario. Hadlow and Pastor both didn’t have their best heats in the Semis with both riders going big but not riding away clean enough to place the high scores they needed. In this scenario it could have been anyone’s day but both Mario and Zoon kept the pressure on their opponents and landing tricks such as 317s and Frontmobe 720s. These tricks require a high technical ability and were no doubt what Mario and Zoon needed to seal their spots in the final.

      The losers final was a formidable match up, both Pastor and Hadlow have beat each other on numerous occasions and it was clear it would come down to the wire as to who would take the third place. Both riders were going big and both riders were crashing hard. Both riders attempting Frontmobe 720s but not quite pulling them off. In the end it was be Pastors huge BS317 and a big Double Heart Attack that would seal him a third place finish and push Hadlow into the fourth spot.

      The Men’s Final was a spectacle to behold with young vs old. Two riders with a similar style and almost the same equipment choice fighting it out for the first place rank for the year. Zoon came out all guns blazing as he had for the last three heats, he posted up what was considered as the biggest Backmobe 540 of the competition and a huge clean 317 to put some pressure on the young Brazilian Mario. Mario look shook, he got off to a slow start but by the middle of the heat it was clear he had sorted out any wobbles. Mario answered back with a big 317 of his own and a huge Backside 317 to get himself back in the game, at this point he no doubt had his confidence back and sealed the deal with a super clean KGB 540 and a butt-checked Frontmobe 720.

      With Mario taking out the event and Zoon in second place, surely this wont be the last time we see this match up this season as it appears Zoon is back on form with his new equipment choice.

      4). Carlos Mario
      Competition will resume towards the end of the week with the Big Air disciplines, with a good forecast for Saturday 22 perfectly in time for the prizegiving ceremony in the evening at Element Watersports.

      Naish is one of the most known and experienced manufacturers in the kitesurfing world and ,therefore, no premiere prepared by the company could go unnoticed. A few days ago we received a pretty big pack of info materials regarding Naish collections for 2016 and 2017. The most interesting novelties seem to be the kites: Ride, Trip and Fly. New harnesses are also noteworthy.
      By Naish:
      Ride: All-around Feeride
      Sizes:  4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14
      Effortless and accessible, the Naish Ride is a fast favorite among riders of all levels. Ideal for those looking to progress their skills quickly, the open center section of this lightweight, two-strut design delivers superior low-end performance and maintains smooth power delivery through turns. Easy water relaunch provides added convenience while a slightly flattened arc generates more lift for easy jumping and “sheet-in-and-go” feel. A consistent performer with incredible control, its versatility will have both new and experienced kiters choosing the Ride as their “go-to” kite for a wide range of styles.

      1). Naish Raid
      Trip: Foil/Underpowered Riding
      Sizes: 8, 10, 12
      Low wind, no problem! The Naish Trip excels in underpowered conditions. Perfect for dedicated intermediate-to-advanced riders, the incredibly lightweight, strutless design delivers the wind range of a larger kite while retaining the fast, precision turning of a smaller kite. An ideal fit for foiling, the Trip’s responsive depower and light weight-compared to other kites of this size-supports seamless transitions for a smooth ride. Log more days on the water with the Trip.

      2). Naish Trip
      Fly: Lightwind Freeride
      Size: 15
      Lightweight and tremendously fast for a kite of its size, the Naish Fly delivers a smooth, yet powerful ride in light-to-marginal wind conditions. The swept-back wing tip and anti-stiction window improve water relaunch, while the two-strut design offers exceptional low-end power. Riders will find themselves in super light wind, yet the speed of the kite will make it feel like a normal, windy day. New this year, our designers have modified the leading edge diameter, allowing the kite to fly farther forward for improved upwind ability and easy handling. Don’t let light wind ruin your day. Grab a Fly and maximize your time on the water.

      3). Naish Fly
      Arsenal: Maximum Support
      Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL
      The next evolution in maximum support harnesses, the lightweight Arsenal conforms to the body with molded memory foam padding along the spine and an ergonomically shaped structure. A superb choice for a wide range of body types, the Arsenal’s wider shape evenly distributes pull-ideal during powered up or overpowered riding. Double spreader bar straps lock the bar securely into place while strategic contouring and memory foam on the spreader bar provide a more comfortable fit.

      4). Naish Arsenal
      Boss: Low Profile/High Support
      Sizes: XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL
      The lower cut of the Boss is ideal for riders looking for a high range of motion and excellent back support. Striking the ultimate balance between the Mission 3D and the Moto harnesses from 2016, the Boss combines the height of the Mission 3D with the fit of the Moto. The locked-in bar pad features extensions which insert into the sides of the harness to lock the bar into place. A low-profile, contoured spreader bar (with memory foam padding) add extra comfort and double spreader bar straps further prevent the bar from riding up with use. The lock-in-and-release mechanism has been adapted to be more user-friendly, while 3D-fit technology, contoured side-shaping and a dual tension belt ensure the harness conforms to the rider’s body for maximum comfort.

      5). Naish Boss
      Alana: Women’s Fit
      Sizes: XS, S, M, L
      Formed and sized for a woman’s curves, the Alana’s 3D-fit technology features a cushioned, molded shell for customized support and stability in key areas. The locked-in bar pad stays securely in place with double spreader bar straps and extensions that tuck into the sides of the harness.

      6). Naish Alana
      Targa: Boardshort Seat Harness
      Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL
      Ergonomic and understated, the Targa seat harness is lightly padded and concealed within boardshorts. Padded leg straps easily adjust from the outside for a custom fit, while strategically placed double spreader bar straps position the bar low on the hips allowing for full range of motion.

      7). Naish Targa
      Defender Vest: Flotation/Impact Protection
      Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL
      Shaped to give experienced riders the confidence to push the limits, the Defender Vest provides superb impact protection and maximum comfort. Following a true wakestyle shape, the soft neoprene lining, large armholes and quad stretch grant full range of motion while strategically placed padded impact zones protect with added flotation for peace of mind.

      8). Naish Defender
