Madinina Kite Challenge: a mix of wakeboarding and kiteboarding

The wonderful island of Martinique was the perfect stage for the Madinina Kite Challenge, set-up by the kite shop and school Airfly 972.

The event is a mix of sliding wakeboard and kiteboarding. Held at Le Vauclin, in the southeast of Martinique, the competition did not have the perfect wind conditions.

Nevertheless, the freestyle sessions and kitesurfing races were successfully concluded.

Lionnel, Robain and Michelle Baillot were the overall winners.
