Water Kings 2017

Water Kings 2017

Period: Jul 1 - Jul 2, 2017
Location: Lagos, Portugal

Kitesurf. Windsurf. SUP. Sailing.

An unprecedented synergy between the sports.

The city of Lagos in Portugal welcomes the most adventurous watermen for a 12h non-stop challenge, in an exclusive format, including night riding.

Between July 1st and 2nd, Meia Praia, one of the most emblematic beaches of the Algarve will host the second edition of WATER KINGS. This unique event tests the strength, "know-how" and the teamwork of the participants in a compelling synergy between 4 different water sports - Kitesurf, Windsurf, Sup and Sailing.

12 hours (from noon till midnight) around a course with a clear purpose: do more than 60% of the laps of the first 3 teams’ average and become Watermen or go for the first place and be crown Water Kings. The duration of the challenge, the night riding experience, the team work that will be necessary and the unusual combination of sports competing together make this event the most challenging and attractive of the year!

In a co-organization of Lufinha Sports Events and Lagos Council, the WATER KINGS competition shares the full potential of the city of Lagos as a privileged destination for water sports and at the same time presents an fun challenge to sports men and women.

"Lagos hosted the first edition of WaterKings last year and due to its huge success, the City Council insisted to be the host for this second edition. We are more than happy to organize the event at Meia Praia, this time closer to the Marina de Lagos, and benefit from the perfect conditions for Water Sports that Lagos has to offer."- says Francisco Lufinha, World Record holder for the longest journey kitesurfing without stops (874Km in 48h non-stop), whose first world record was established precisely in Lagos in September 2013.

All the action is easy to follow by the public at Meia Praia Beach. And for those who cannot be in Lagos during the event, it will be possible to follow the race online via an interactive map with ranking, speeds and positions of the teams updated via GPS in real time.
