Airton Cozzolino crowned 2017 GKA Kitesurf World Tour champion

What better way to crown a wave kitesurfing champion than in the iconic reef break of One Eye, in Mauritius.

The 2017 GKA Kitesurf World Tour is over, and we have a new champion. The race for the championship title had two contenders – Matchu Lopes and Airton Cozzolino – and they put everything on each wave to raise the coveted trophy.

Both riders progressed through the early heats until the competition turned into a do-or-die showdown.
