Toni Vodisek Claims the 2019 KiteFoil World Series Gizzeria Title

19-year-old Slovenian Toni Vodisek has secured his first regatta win on the professional kite racing circuit with a commanding 25 point lead over second-placed Axel Mazella from France.

Vodisek secured the win with two races to spare in front of a growing beachside crowd “I feel amazing, never felt better” commented Vodisek shortly after coming ashore. “My first victory at a big event, I’m super happy. Thanks for everything everybody who helped me and it’s great to have the best kites, Ozone, and I hope we can continue this year.”

Daniela Moroz from the U.S.A. once again showed why she is the four-time reigning World Champion, putting 19 sailors in the open fleet between herself and second place female Eleanor Aldridge from Great Britain. Moroz also took out the Under 19 division while in the ever-growing youth (U16) field Maximilian Maeder from Singapore secured victory. Ejder Ginyol from Turkey took out the top spot in the Masters ahead of James Johnsen of Denmark who came in second and also took the win in the Grand Masters.

The 2019 KiteFoil World Series now heads to China for two back-to-back events at Weifang and Pingtan in September before returning to Europe for the series finale in Cagliari, Sardinia.
