On the first day of the tournament the athletes were reunited to talk about how the new format would be implemented and have everyone understand how scoring and other aspects of the competition would go. At the end of the afternoon, all riders assisted to LAX Bar and Restaurant to register, enjoy dinner and a presentation of the organizing crew. 30 men and 12 women registered for the event, of over 10 different nationalities. 

 

 

Susi Mai and Bill Tai from MaiTai Global presented their history behind coming up with this very cool event. Danny Galiart, CEO of the World Kiteboarding League spoke about the origins of the new tour.

On day two, the winds did not cooperate with enough strenght, causing the trials to be postponed for the next day. Only the first round of trials was completed and it was local rider Lorenzo Calcaño (DR/Core) who came first, followed by Russian Sergey Sotov (RU/Cabrinha).

Even though the wind was not ideal, the ambience around the competition was active as the spectators and participants from MaiTai Global gathered around the beach and pool area to enjoy the event and socialize.
