The sun was out and the wind pumping as we woke up to what was set to be an epic showdown between the top four female riders of this event and we were certainly not left disappointed.
Wow what a day we have had here for the final of the Elite League of the World Kiteboarding League first tour stop of the year in Leucate.
The sun was out and the wind pumping as we woke up to what was set to be an epic showdown between the top four female riders of this event and we were certainly not left disappointed in a thrilling final.
Annelous Lammerts with a strong start to the heat
The final started with all four girls landing their first three tricks with very little between them. Both Annabel and Bruna landed their s-bend to blind. It was then Annelous who took the first crash whilst attempting her back mobe and Bruna following on with a crash of her own on a slim chance.

Both Bruna and Annelous landed the tricks on their next attempt, but Annelous’s back mobe scored a 6.63 whereas Bruna’s slim chance scored a whopping 9 points grabbing her the highest trick of the competition.

It was the Aruban rider Annabel van Westerop however who got on with business landing all of her tricks with good scores including an 8.4 slim chance of her own keeping her firmly on the heels of Bruna Kajiya whilst Francesca Bagnoli missed her fourth trick but cam back with a slim chance and hinterberger mobe of her own.

Our thoughts go out to Annelous Lammerts who rode such a strong competition from the qualifiers to the finals and was so close but just could not get the points she wanted when it came down to the wire.
