17th in wavecontest Dakhla

I ended the 1. tourstop of the PRKA on the 17. place in Marocco. There was no internet, this is why it comes late. I've been staying in "AUBERGE DES NOMADES" which was nice. Now we are in Lanzarote for the 2. tourstop and i am going to push it on this contest.

X Friday 25.03 Left Tenerife with Boris Judin, for Gran Canaria and finally Dakhla. We managed to get a good deal on our luggage and got there by a small airplane, slightly bigger than a car with 20 seats. We arrived at our camp "OBERGE DES NOMADES" and everything was perfect and relaxed. We had good food and big expectations on the next day.

X Saturday 26.03 Woke up this morning pretty keen to go out, the wind was on. Nice breakfast and then straight on the water. We went to the speedstrip whit flat water and 7m kites all day long.

X Sunday 27.03 Ready for some wavetraining. Went with a bunch of guys to the wavespot with headhigh and overhead waves, down the line, all day.

X Monday 28.03 Kind of the same like the day before. Wavetraining, the waves had decreased a bit but still nice, headhigh and 7m kite. 2. sick sesion in quallity waves.

X Tuesday 29.03 Day of the registration and my friend Bastien Bollard arrived. Went again to the wavespot with more dificult condions than the days before.
