Luis Alberto Cruz (Starkites, DOM) was one of the riders who performed exceptionally for the large crowd of spectators on the beach. Cruz had a few tricks up his sleeve, landing a one-handed Late Mobe with his kite practically inches above the water as well as double handlepasses, an outstanding 313 with a super low kite position which enable him to eliminate his opponents such as Mario Rodwald (North, GER) in the first round as well as Andy Yates (Slingshot, AUS) in a 5/0 judge’s decision followed by Mikael Blomvall (Nobile, SWE) in the third round due to his cleaner executions, variety of tricks as well as kite position.”
