As the newly crowned KPL Champion, Karolina Winkowska told us:
I am incredibly happy to win the first season of the Kite Park League. After 10 years on freestyle world tour I was really exhausted of going to the same places, competing with the same girls and doing pretty much the same tricks over and over again. Thanks to the KPL tour I refreshed my kiteboarding experience, learned new tricks, met different riders and visited new destinations like Philipines, USA and UK.
It was such an amazing year with all the park style riders for whom the most important thing is to have fun on and off of the water. The competition side is something that makes us travel to the same locations and and makes us progress faster.
The level of girls park riding got incredibly high because for the first time we had a chance to ride together in the best kite parks in the world.
The last event in Rhosneigr, Wales was the event that I really was excited to go to. I’ve never been to the UK for kiteboarding and I knew this would be a good one.
The weather wasn’t spoiling us, but we were prepared with 5mm wetsuits and hoods so the cold couldn’t stop us. The features for the park were awesome, made from recycled materials and also worked on windless days as the organiser set up a 2.0 wake system.
I am super stoked to be part of the Kite Park League and I am looking forward for the next year and more action with all the girls !
