2021 KiteFoil World Series Gran Canaria


Day three of the 2021 KiteFoil World Series Gran Canaria saw the breeze gusting too strongly for the riders to get out through the shore break at Playa de las Burras. Again no racing, but few murmurs of disappointment from the fleet.

Someone who was desperate to get out there was Denis Taradin. The Russian Federation rider needs some races to mount his fight-back for second place in this event as well as in the overall World Series.

France holds the upper hand in both the men’s and women’s divisions, with Axel Mazella winning four of the five races completed so far in Gran Canaria. Top woman is Poema Newland who has got better and better throughout the season. Winner of a silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games in 2018 on a twin-tip kiteboard, Newland was persuaded to switch to kitefoiling and aim for the Paris Olympic Games in 2024.
