The best snowkite competition on the planet... that's for sure.
I loved the professionally of the riders, the serious friendly organization and the environment.
This is the pure snowkite feeling ... the meaning of a wind trip into the wild.

my feedback is 100% positive and I will get beck for another Vake session in the future.

here it's my short video version of the race... you can also check the long one on the link in the video text.

wind rules!
