The weekend of 30th and 31th of May were not as usual for everyone. The Swedish nationalswere held in Landskrona. This is Mike’s hometown and homespot. The competition was organised by ‘Aris’ kitesurfing club.
Our teamrider, Mike Blomvall, was competing for 1st place and trying to get some good tricks in his heat. There were approximately 8 competitors in the freestyle discipline, which is not that many. However, the level was still quite high as all the top Swedish kite riders were competing. The first heat Mike had to compete against his biggest rival, Niklas. Eventually Niklas became second, which is an amazing achievement.
Mike Blomvall: “I felt pretty comfortable with the forecast and the competition. I was in good shape and fit, which is an important factor when you enter any competition.”
After winning the first 2 heats, Mike had to take it up in the final against Niklas again. They both had a strong heat with landing almost all their best tricks. Mike landed a Backmobe 5, Double S-bend pass, Frontmobe, 313 and many more kitetricks in 7 minutes.
Mike Blomvall: “Everybody was having a good time on the water. The sun was out, with was good and in the final we were giving the spectators a good kiteboarding show. Everyone was saying that this was the best heat of the day, which is always good to hear something like that when you have done your best.”
Mike Blomvall won the final against Niklas and became first on the first tourstop of the Swedish Nationals. FUTURE Kiting is proud to announce this amazing news and congrats to our teamrider. Enjoy the feeling and get ready for the next one!
