Mondial du Vent - Air Games

Best moments of day 3 of the 2018 Mondial du Vent international event which is taking place from 17 to 22 April at Leucate-La Franqui, France.

The GKA Kiteboarding World Championships (Air Games), and European Freestyle Pro Tour.

Day 3 marked the start of qualifying for the windsurfing tow-in competition. 18 riders are registered for this event, which temporarily replaces the EFPT European Championship stage - still waiting for better wind conditions.

They are divided into two fleets (groups) of 9 riders. The top 5 of each fleet are qualified for the final, which will take place Saturday, 21 April.

Pulled by a jet-ski, the windsurfers take speed and perform tricks in turn, at the beach, at the foot of the spectators. They have two attempts to make the best figure, with the highest score scored on 10 points.
