Mitu Monteiro: winning in Dakhla is always special | Photo: GKA

Mitu Monteiro has taken out the 2017 World Cup Dakhla, in Morocco.

The Cape Verdean kitesurfer defeated Keahi de Aboitiz in the grand final held on the edge of the desert. The decisive clash had the strongest wind of the whole competition.

Both riders were super active, constantly pulling and landing front rolls, 360s, crazy horses, grabbed back rolls, and massive cutbacks. But the judges went for Monteiro.

"It was hard. I was lucky to get a few really nice waves, like the last one in which I did a few maneuvers. I also tried to land a few tricks in the strapless," said Mitu Monteiro.

"I wanted to win here in Morocco because it is where I got my title in 2008. The people are friendly, and I am stoked."

The third stop on the GKA World Tour is Fuerteventura, in the Canary Islands.
