Today we’ve had higher scores, mixed conditions and some surprising results! The wind was slightly stronger at Kite Beach, but it came with a side onshore wave, making riding conditions tricky for our competitors. The day got off to a great start with Titik Lopes CV setting the bar for high scores in the first heat of the day, with a complete score of 10.24. He will go on to face Pedro Matos BR, the rider with the highest overall score from Day 1 in the first heat of the next round. Pedro scored an impressive 13.53 given the difficult conditions in his heat against local favourite and event organiser Djo Silva CV but that didn’t dampen Djo’s spirit, he’s still riding the high of this incredible event, which has taken place right out front of the kite school he runs with the world number two Mitu Monteiro so far. The conditions this afternoon were less than perfect for the women’s division, with riders finding the mushy, sideshore, waves tricky at times. There were lulls in the wind which made wave selection even more crucial for scoring points. One rider that didn’t seem to notice the lack of swell was Ines Correia PT. The Portugese woman spends part of the year in Cape Verde, and local knowledge shone through. Ines took both the highest scoring wave of the day 6.93, and the highest complete score 13.70 in the women’s division in the first heat. She goes through to face JC Edin SE in the quarter finals. Johanna-Catharina goes through with a complete score of 8.54.
