What's that white/red/black kite in the bottom right above the two orange kites?

It’s a Sonic Race prototype. Flysurfer has a large design team at the event and came a week early to test kites. Pretty impressive to see them at work. The new kite looks very nice. Ozone has no pit crew at this event and no new protos on the water.

Yes, the top Flysurfer guys are riding the prototype kite. Maxime is on the Sonic Race. F2020- My apologies. Yes it looks like Ricardo is riding an Ozone proto. And the F-One guys are on the Diablo V4. I'll try to ask about the new Flysurfer and the design upgrades from the Sonic Race. Hope we get some wind.

Day 2 had no wind but day 3 had enough for 4 races. Once again we saw wins from Olly Bridge for the men, and Daniella Moroz for the women.
