World’s best kitesurfers gear up for the start of the One Eye Kite Surf Pro
Stop number two of this year’s KSP season will take the tour back to the location of last year’s most talked about event. From September 7 to 16, 2012 the world’s best kite surfers will gather once again at the foot of the Le Morne Mountain in the pristine southwest corner of Mauritius Island.
In the wake of last year’s mind-blowing conditions and performances, the One Eye Kite Surf Pro on Mauritius is immensely anticipated by riders, organizers, sponsors and media alike. The long, barreling, left-hand reef break at One Eye, featuring side-offshore winds and near-perfect, head-high to quadruple-overhead high surf, is already warming up for the event by delivering large surf over the past week for riders already on location to train.
KSP vice-president Sky Solbach says: “The One Eye event is quite simply one of the most anticipated events on tour. Last year’s crazy conditions turned a lot of heads and we’re all really looking forward to see what One Eye will dish up this time around. With the southern hemisphere swell season kicking into high gear, we are optimistic about the prospect of great conditions during the ten day holding period.”
Local organizer Benjamin Boldton of Swell & Events states: “We are proud to be able to bring the event back to One Eye. With last years event, Mauritius has truly been put on the kite surf map and it has now the opportunity to further its reputation and establish itself next to other well-known kite surf destinations around the world.”
