PKRA in France, Leucate – Mondial du Vent 2014


I had another amazing time of World Cup event last week. This time we were competing in France, at the spot called La Franque in Leucate. This place is famous for very strong winds, and that’s what welcomed us. Katarzyna Lange Kiteboarding I had one session before the competition started on my 5m 50Fifty kite and I knew this is going to be harsh. Around 20 girls has registered so we we had Trials to do first. Our Polish Team consisted of Denis Żurik, Karolina Winkowska and me was ready to rock! Katarzyna Lange Karolina Winkowska Denis Żurik pkra France When Trials started, I was watching other riders and thought I have to do my best to pass, doesn’t matter what the wind is like. When my first heat started, I was on my 5m trying to land what I could, and I won the heat. The same with the second one, so I was happy I got in to the Main Event already:) I also felt more confinent, and got more used to the wind. It was strong and gusty, but only made the tricks more powerful, which was good. pkra france Katarzyna Lange On the second day we’ve started the main competitions. Wind was crazy, but first round of men heats was encouraging, watching them riding with all power was only pushing me to give more of myself. Katarzyna Lange Kiteboarding2 My heat was against Kristiin Oja, and I did well, landing most of attempts, and I won this one :) Katarzyna Lange Kiteboarding3 I went up the ladder to ride against Gisela Pulido. Thit heat was more stressful that I thought it may be. I was after few days of kiting, getting better every day, but during those 7 minutes I couldn’t put myself together, I hardly landed blind judge and few simplier tricks, I was stressed and didn’t gain half of the points from the heat before, lost hard. Anyway it was great to ride against Gisela and any time next it’s not going to be “the first time” anymore, and I’ll be more relaxed :) For me Single Elimination finished at 5th place. Later the day the wind increased and after long hours on the beach in 35-45kts the final round of heats was postponed for tomorrow. Katarzyna Lange Kiteboarding4 Later in double elimination I had a heat against Dioneia Veira from Brazil, I felt good, and prepared, and I started the heat well. But I didn’t manage to land last trick, 313, and Dioneia who rode really great, won it, and I dropped down to 9th place. Katarzyna Lange Kiteboarding5 Last day was the Finals!! Great heats to watch all afternoon!! The crowd was applauding every sick move of riders, what built a nice atmosphere. The best turned out to be Karolina Winkowska and Christophe Tack – BIG CONGRATS !! That was important time for me, lots of strong wind riding, I missed that for a while :)

Thanks to Nobile Kiteboarding!!:)

Back from World Tour PKRA Morocco : D


This year I’m happy to compete in the Kiteboarding World Tour – PKRA. First competition I attended has just finished, and it took place in Dakhla Marocco, 18-23 March 2014.

I’ve travelled from Vietnam to Marocco, and arrived 2 days before competition started. Western Sahara welcomed me at cold night and my first thought was if I took enough clothes.. But in the morning the temperature rose quickly and every day was pretty warm !

After arrival I’ve spent few days just kiting because of priority of Wave division, and when it came to freestyle wind was strong, durign heats I’ve been choosing between 7m and 5m all the time..

As for first start this year I’m happy with my result, although in Single Elimination I lost in my first heat so couldn’t really check myself much.

But next day in Doubles I managed to get to next round and failed later in heat against Manuela. My final result was 7th place. I knew it wasn’t my best performance, and I’ve learnt my lesson to do better next time !!

It was super windy 9 days, with everyday wind increasing !! The lagoon in Dakhla is great, and there’s many flat spots, although our competition zone was in the middle of it, that’s why in 25-35 kts it was choppy and harder that it looks like.Definitely recommend the spot in Dakhla Attitude Hotel, and what’s more, during our stay they build a wake park, so last day I hit some fresh obstacles for a change :)

I’m back in Vietnam to stay focused on riding before next PKRA stop in France ! ! Hope to see my team mates there too!

Surfing w krainie kangurów…


Od listopada jestem na treningu w Australii i jestem bardzo zadowolona, wiatrowo ten sezon jest dużo lepszy od poprzedniego! W samym grudniu naliczyłam 24 dni wiatrowe, często nieprognozowanego wiatru, typowa bryza, zaczyna się około południa i wieje do zachodu słońca (18:30) z siłą ok 15-20 węzłów.
