2020 Kite-surf world-cup Cape Verde – Women’s final
Ines Correia and Peri Roberts, two event favourites faced each other in the final. Peri has a strong Aussie surf style, she has no fear, rides hard and with power. Ines is comfortable riding her home spot, and with the support of the home crowd. Ines rode intelligently, linked smooth turns and some powered hacks. These women were well matched, and the scoring was tight, but Ines edged forward, took and then held onto the lead, with an impressive 7.00 wave, and with a complete score of 12.74 she won the heat and the event! Peri took a very respectable 10.50 and a well deserved second place. Huge congratulations to Ines Correia for taking the title in such difficult conditions, what a start to 2020 for this talented woman!
2020 Kite-surf world-cup Cape Verde – Men’s final
In the men’s division Pedro Matos BR and James Carew AU were on the water in Heat 1. Throughout the competition both these riders have demonstrated their surf knowledge and skills, both come from a surfing background, and those extra board skills really help when conditions are tough, like they have been in this event. They both rode hard and with style but the Aussie James outshone the Brazilian, with a complete score of 13.43 against Pedro’s 11.60. It was an incredible heat to watch!
