The Super Kite Day snowkitecamp was a complete success again. Fully booked for all three weeks. Seb and I organised the whole event. All the riders had amazing conditions every week with all kinds of winds giving us the chance to use the whole Flysurfer test point which ranged from the Viron2DLX, Peak2CE, Cronix, Boost and the amazing Lotus. The most popular kite this trip was the Peak2 CE 9m, this kite really allowed riders to set up easy and get riding up the mountain fast. We also had riders taking lessons from Alex Robin at Kite Legende snowkiteschool each week, they all really enjoyed the lessons and progressed much faster. Benoit Miquel also came to see us during the event and was riding with us on the spot doing some incredible loops with his Boost. Lolo BSD was also at the kitecamp bringing even more super good times, it was great for the guests to get a chance to meet the some of the top riders in the world and learn from them. Cedric Bontemps was at the kitecamp too offering kite repairs but most popular was his custom harness snowkite jackets which nearly every rider wanted allowing riders to keep there harness inside there jacket. Every day people were saying they had the best day of there life. We even had a couple even get engaged at the kitecamp and she said yes! Lots of riders got to experience the monetier les bains baths for the first time and that was a super fun time. Every night people took turns and shared the cooking for each other and it was really nice to experience new things. A few riders went out to the serre chevalier ski resorts to take advantage of the fresh powder and oh it was powpow aright ;)
The Flysurfer test point was very welcome at the camp, lots of riders requested to test kites and had the chance to see what quality kiteboarding is all about. I helped the riders learn and shared my experience and skills with them, supervised them and showed them the best ways to set up on the mountain, ride safe and pack down. We for sure have a lot more Flysurfer fans now.
We had many super snowkite days with all the riders, making new friends and connections is a great thing that always happens with SKD camps. Everyone wants to come on our next trip to Egypt El Gouna in October.
The Mood kitecup during week 3 was super amazing, the most relaxed event I have ever been to, it was so much fun just being able to all jam together and have fun on the kicker we made and take photos and videos.
The 'Extra Days' after the camp was spent with the Van Doeselaar brothers, Mat Eiaga and the legendary Mark Berry who is the guy on the back of the original MBS pro90 board. He came out to meet up after the camp and I got him to test the 18m Lotus, we all had some really nice snowkite seshs together and did some free ride snowboarding too.
The Super Kite Day snowkitecamp always brings incredible memory's to all the people that take part. It was a emotional journey with friends finding it hard to let go and say good buy at the end of each week. It truly is a spectacular event that brings people together that share the same passion. People that would not normally cross paths but new and strong friendships grow and this is the spirit of the SKD kitecamps.
