Steph Bridge and I have just been in Mauritius for the first stop of the Kite Surf Pro world tour.

We had amazing conditions with waves up to 15ft and wind every day for the whole 2 weeks we were here on this paradise island in the Indian Ocean.

The whole event has been superbly run by the KSP crew, judges, local organisers and was live streamed on the web breaking new ground for kitesurf competitions and pushing the sport of kite wave riding forward. Big thanks to all involved especially the event and tour sponsors.

Congratulations go to the winners Airton Cozzolino and Ninja Bichler who were standout riders for the whole event. Also big well done to Steph on her 3rd place finish in her first ever wave comp!

Stay tuned for a full report and some mind blowing pictures. All the heats are available to view on www.kspworldtour.com

I would like to thank my sponsors- Sportif, North, Resin8, Freeriders, Rip Curl, Wiley X and the BKSA.
