Mexico PKRA day 3 & 4

“Day 3 started soo windy with a big swell rollin in. I was on the water by 7.30am with some training with Densil and Bruno from France. I was lit on the 10mtr rhino 08- what a weapon this kite is. Flying upwind with plenty of strap on then going downwind let the strap off and I am just so on the edge! By the end of the 2 hours I had improved on the gybes and tacks in the challenging conditions, it was back to the beach for skippers meeting. the double elimination started immediately with racing in the afternoon. I managed to blag a 9mtr vegas and board so went and did 2 rounds of freestyle before getting knocked out by Angela Peral who went on to finish 3rd overall.The event was won by aaron who had to beat kevin Langeree twice then in the girls it was won by Bruna. By 4pm there was a tropical storm on the way with thunder, lightening and plenty of liquid sunshine. The brits were loving it so it was celebration time at Mariposa with a full bottle of rum, Johara was on it and filling the glasses up of neat rum! Lewis & aaron smelt trouble, joined us for some early happy hour along with Charles Deleu who was just ‘Dangerous’. It was gettin messy, time fo the party and no time for food! Aaron was dishing out champagne and the place was buzzing. The next bit of the night I remember was waking up in my bed with a strange heart palpation and this was the red bull–that was it, i was not drinkin any more of this poison! Day 4 was an early start for the race briefing but the wind was bolt offshore, super gusty/shifty and there seemed to be a lack of rescue cover. We were on hold all day with no racing. It was a good chance to catch up with some of the photographers and other team members talking about kit.Tomorrow is the final day and the plan is to have 4 races, the forecast is solid. Steph went on to win overall claiming 2 firsts and 2 seconds in the final days 4 races.
