Alex Pastor, Youri Zoon and Gisela Pulido have taken out the Marsala Freestyle World Cup, in Sicily, Italy.
The last day of competition brought light winds and everybody was anxious to start the double elimination. The wind never came up and results were announced.
The event had two great days of wind and when the spot was on, it was amazing. The flat waters of the lagoon of Stagnone, with its constant wind, make it a perfect freestyle spot.
There were many amazing tricks like the blind judge 5, 317, KGB 5 and many more flawlessly executed handle passes. Liam Whaley had the highest heat total (38.39) and score for a single trick BJ5 (8.53).
Gisela won her second consecutive event and took the points lead on the tour, and Youri Zoon and Alex Pastor shared first place.
"I am very happy to win on my 13-meter kite- I am more used to the Tarifa winds. I am also happy to take the points lead and will not face Bruna in the semifinal next event", said Pulido.
The next Freestyle event will be in Sankt Peter-Ording, in Germany. The race for first place is heating up again between Gisela and Karolina. Alex Pastor has been dominating this year and he has not lost a heat in 2013. What's next?
