    GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2018 - Le Morne / Mauritius In 2016, Matchu Lopes won the event in Mauritius, putting himself in contention for the World Title which he went on to win that year. Last year, Keahi de Aboitiz stormed to victory in the men’s division while Moona Whyte (his girlfriend) won the women’s division. Le Morne, and particularly One Eye, has been frequented by World Tour wave events for a long time now and the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour has visited the spot twice. One of the most picture-perfect wave spots on the planet. Le Morne has three world class waves and is home to one of the most hallowed wave spots in the world – One Eye. It’s been the site of a couple of big tour upsets since the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour first visited back in 2016. That first year, Airton’s unexpected loss to local rider Jeremy Chan left room for Matchu Lopes to make a push and win the event before stealing a tour win from under his friend’s nose at the next (and final) event in Dakhla. In 2017, Airton was denied a clean sweep on the way to his GKA World Title as well when he was knocked out in the semi-finals by Sebastian Ribeiro before Keahi de Aboitiz went on to take the win.

    This year will be the third time the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour has visited Sotavento. Airton Cozzolino rules the skies in Sotavento and remains undefeated there! Around 80% of the time the wind blows cross-offshore in Sotavento and it's at its strongest from May - September. In the high-season (July and August) the wind can ratchet up to 40 knots, so you can expect a real show here if the event coincides with a properly windy week. The conditions play right into the hands of some of the tour's most powerful riders such as Airton Cozzolino, Paulino Pereira and Gustavo Arrojo and the Big-Air comps are always something to behold! Conditions can be challenging though, and that underlines the skill of the riders when they're competing here. It’s also a spectator-friendly location with a viewing gallery right on the shoreline and epic parties by night at La Carpa
