Nazaré - Portugal
Disciplines: Freestyle et Waves
The Yourmmod Kitecup decided to go in Portugal, specifically in Nazare, for its second edition.
If you open Wikipedia, you will find the following definition of Nazare: Nazare is a city in Portugal with a totale area of 82.4 km and total population of 14 904 inhabitants. It is a village rich in history with deeply traditions, good food and lively nightlife scene which only Portuguese get the secret.
So, you can for example enjoying this place and go to N. Sra. da Nazaré Sanctuary & Memória Chapel, see the drying of the dried fish next to the building of the Old Fish Market, go to pedralva garden to see the landscape from Monte Branco, taste the local gastronomy, specially the seafood and fish in any restaurant...
In other side, Nazaré became a tourist resort, thanks to its long beach’s (considered like the most beautiful beaches of Portugal).Thanks to all these advantages, Nazaré is, since the mid-twentieth century, the favorite destination of famous writers, artists and photographers.
But Nazaré also happens to be a gem for lovers of water sports. Indeed, in this place, you can find the most beautiful and powerful waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the wind blows steadily, especially in summer.
It looks crazy, but, this magical place for kite has, to date, received no such event yet.
But the local authorities are determined that things change, like the president of Nazaré Qualifica, EEM, Dr. Miguel Sousinha : ' We invest in events that by their nature provide a differentiation and bring added value by reputation, in a national and international level, that projects Nazaré as a major center for the realization of events linked to the sea and associated sports.The Yourmood Kitecup has those characteristics, the reason why we are associated. We believe that, once again, Nazaré will host a fantastic event with national and international impact. That is our mission: transform Nazaré as a privilege stage on the worldwide water sports scene'.
Mass is said. Take the ambitions and potential of the site, add the motivation of riders that will be unlimited to ride and enjoy a place like this and you get the Yourmood Kitecup 2, an event that already looks outstanding !
