Alex Pastor: showing off his sponsors

Alex Pastor has confirmed the 2013 PKRA Freestyle World Tour title, in Pingtan Island, China.

The Spanish rider managed to finish higher than Marc Jacobs, in the double elimination round, to secure his maiden world kiteboarding title.

"I can't describe how happy I feel right now. I've accomplished my goal for the last three years. It's been a really long and tough year, with three world champions competing, and eight PKRA stops, but I finally got it with a lot of effort and training", says Alex Pastor.

"It's an unbelievable feeling to bring this title to my family and all the people that has supported and cheered for me! Thanks a lot to everyone, including my sponsors because I wouldn't have made it without them",

Pastor sealed the deal when there are still two stages left to conclude the 2013 PKRA Freestyle season: Haikou (China) and Mendoza (Argentina).

Alex Pastor was born on the 19th November, 1989, in Malaga, Spain. He started windsurfing with his father in Tarifa, and tried kiteboarding for the first time in 2003.
