  1. AIRTON AND MIKAILI ARE CEARA KITE PRO CHAMPIONS! Airton Cozzolino and Mikaili Sol have brought home the advantage of their single elimination wins earlier this week to take the Ceara Kite Pro event crown, winning today’s double elimination. The Ceara Kite Pro is the final Kite-Surf event of the 2019 GKA Kite World Tour - the official World Champions will be crowned tomorrow. Friday 14th November 2019 Location: Prea, Brazil 1). GKA Kite-Surf World Cup Prea, Brazil 2). 13-year-old Capuccine Delannoy - Camille's sister - one to watch next year! 13 year-old Capuccine Delannoy was the fight-back star of the women’s double elimination, coming through four back-to-back heats before being beaten by the already-World Champion Carla Herrera-Oria in the quarter final. Carla managed to despatch the young French rider before moving on to beat Brazilian beach favourite Marcela Witt and then got her much anticipated re-match against Mikaili Sol – the current FREESTYLE World Champion who only started training strapless freestyle two weeks ago. 3). Mikaili riding high again! Mikaili won the single elimination yesterday, so had to be beaten twice. The final was a good fight but Mikaili just proved what an amazing kite athlete she is and once again moved beyond 30 points and astoundingly almost landed a front roll shuvit right at the end, which is just incredible. 4). With the front roll locked down... it was time to bring in the shuvit... perhaps it'll be perfected tomorrow? On stage Carla thanked Mikaili for deciding to compete and help the girls push their level. “I hope to see you at more events!” she said reflecting the unity on tour right now. Mikaili: “I have no words, I was training so hard the last two weeks, but I really can’t believe I’ve won. I’m so thankful.” Next week Mikaili will compete in Cumbuco at the final event of the GKA Freestyle season (her specialist area) where she will also be crowned World Champion for the third time. 5). Mikaili Sol, Carla Herrera-Oria, Marcela Witt WOMEN’S RESULT: 1 Mikaili Sol (BRA) 2 Carla Herrera-Oria (ESP) (World Champion) 3 Marcela Witt (BRA) 4 Capuccine Delannoy (FRA) MEN: What an exciting day that climaxed in a repeat of last year, with Airton Cozzolino and local boy Camille Delannoy going head to head twice in a super final! 6). Pedro, fired up in his homeland Pedro Matos was the early star of the show, forcing his way through four back to back double elimination heats. He eventually lost to Mitu Monteiro who was then defeated by Camille in a titanic battle between the F-One team mates. 7). Carew flew, but not quite as high as usual Australian James Carew just didn’t click it all together in his usual stratospheric way in the semi-final, while Camille slammed home another massive heat win to go on to meet single elimination winner Airton, who was already waiting in the final. 8). Airton and Camille square up for the final In the first final Camille just took it 38.9 to 38.12 after Airton staged a thrilling last two minute fight back. That forced a super final and a different Airton came out for that one. You’ve got to be an alien to beat the alien twice on the same day, but Camille has now beaten Airton twice in a year, and is one of just two riders ever to have beaten him in strapless freestyle (the other being Matchu Lopes), so that makes him just a bit special, too! The final super final score was 40.57 to 39! 9). Airton Cozzolino, Camille Delannoy, James Carew MEN’S RESULT: 1 Airton Cozzolino (CV) (World Champion) 2 Camille Delannoy (FRA) 3 James Carew (AUS) 4 Mitu Monteiro (CV) 10). You just can't keep him down - the 2019 World Champion finishes the season on the top step of the final event - the Ceara Kite Pro in Prea Airton: “Feels great to win one more time. Brazil is one of my favourite places in the world for strapless. I kited every day for the last ten days and planned to take a rest, but no chance because it’s windy everyday! Thanks everyone and I’m just super stoked to win again.” Prea has proved itself once again as a phenomenal spot for world class strapless freestyle and this year staged the final round of the GKA Kite World Tour’s Kite-Surf discipline.

  2. MIKAILI SOL TAKES BREATHTAKING WIN... IN HER FIRST STRAPLESS FREESTYLE EVENT! 15 year-old 3 x FREESTYLE World Champion makes highly successful switch to win women's GKA Kite-Surf World Cup Brazil Women's Single Elimination. Friday 14th November 2019 Location: Prea, Brazil 1). No need to blink, that's Mikaili on top of a strapless freestyle podium... Single elimination winner: Mikaili Sol, 2nd Marcela Witt, 3rd Carla Herrera-Oria, 4th Charlotte Carpentier Having already sealed the deal on this year's GKA FREESTYLE World Championship with one more round to come (also in Brazil, next week), 15-year-old Mikaili Sol decided that, as the Kite-Surf discipline was wrapping up at her home spot in Prea, she'd have nothing to lose by throwing her hat into the ring. 2). That'sfront roll dialled in, then! Compared to the more established men's scene, as a professional movement the women's strapless freestyle discipline is still in its infancy. This being only the second full female tour season, Mikaili has perhaps spotted a way of catching up to Spaniard Gisela Pulido's massive haul of nine official World Titles (that she had achieved by 2014) by potentially trying to win two titles next year! 3). It was all just fun in the home sun for Sol The young Brazilian only decided to start training properly for strapless freestyle two weeks ago, but such are the consistency of conditions here in Prea that she was able to dedicate six hours on the water each day for that fortnight. Against Canadian tour regular, Frances Kelly, she opened up with her first trick attempt in her first heat by scoring the season's highest women's trick score, getting a 9.4 for a front roll, popping harder than anyone else and yet showing beautiful control throughout the rotation and landing with speed. Sure, she's young and has incredible freestyle acumen and body kinaesthetics, but that's just a bit rude! 4). Mikaili's rodeo kite loop Carla Herrera-Oria has already done enough to secure the women's Kite-Surf world title and she showed all the resilience we've come to respect from this hard working competitor. A kitesurfing instructor from Tarifa, the Ocean Rodeo rider developed a pure enjoyment for this discipline three years ago and pushed hard for more women to take it up and create a regular tour fleet. 5). Carla - always up for the fight Carla drew Mikaili in the semi-final: 2019 Freestyle World Champion against 2019 Kite-Surf World Champion. Clearly there was more pressure on Carla as the specialist in this discipline, but the scale of facing a truly prodigious, younger talent who was riding relaxed at her home spot, quickly became apparent. Carla is so consistent in her array of tricks, you have to respect the way she has set about becoming a competitor and learning to nail tricks across five different categories - whatever the conditions. As the highest ranked rider she had a bye in round one. Her three single elimination heat scores yesterday (with five tricks counting from different trick families / ten attempts allowed) were 26.57, 24.83 and 23.04; the smooth back roll rodeo being her key weapon, frequently securing her more than six points each time. 6). Young fans were impressed However, Mikaili's comfort with high speed technical freestyle gave her the edge and it's amazing to see how she's managed to transfer that into the strapless discipline. Her semi-final performance against Carla gave the Brazilian her highest heat score of the day, 38.27; made up with 6.5 for a back roll board-off, 9.67 for a front roll board-off, 3.27 for a big straight air, 9.33 for a front roll and 9.5 for a back roll rodeo. 7). Carla and Charlotte Carla went on to claim third step on the single elimination podium, convincingly beating French rider Charlotte Carpentier in the mini-final, while Mikaili went on to meet another Brazilian rising star in the final. 8). Marcela Witt We last saw Marcela Witt at the event here in Prea last year and with just a few years kiting under her belt, this Rio resident (but regular Prea visitor) (who also has her own show on Brazilian TV!) demonstrated an impressive ability to perform her tricks with more height and amplitude than most. Marcela has also confirmed that she will be attending more events outside of Brazil next year. Neither rider achieved their biggest heat score in the final, but Mikaili reserved her highest individual tricks score, laying down a perfect 10 for a slick front roll right as the starting horn sounded... and she finished a full ten points ahead of Marcela. 9). The finalists frolic! 10). Marcela and Mika on the mic WOMEN'S SINGLE ELIMINATION RESULT: 1 Mikaili Sol (BRA) 2 Marcela Witt (BRA) 3 Carla Herrera-Oria (ESP) 4 Charlotte Carpentier (FRA) Women's single elimination highlights Words: Jim Gaunt Photos: Svetlana Romantsova Video: Mintautas Grigas
