GYPSIES ON TOUR – E0 The Beginning

Kristiin Oja (Estiona, Kitesurf Tour Asia Champion 2013) and me started with really cool video project, called Gypsies on Tour. We met in Brazil while training in winter, we shared the same dream, competing in PKRA World Tour. We didn’t really have enough sponsors back then to go for whole tour, but we decided not to give up our dream and do it together – that’s why we call ourselves Gypsies On Tour. With this video project we will try to give you some insight into our lifestyle, traveling and kiting. We will upload one episode per week, not only showing kiteboarding, but showing you the reality, how it really is.

First episode dropping next week! Daily updates from #GypsiesOnTour at Facebook

PKRA FRANCE

Last week we were in Leucate for the 3rd world cup of the PKRA world tour. Leucate is famous for the Tramontana wind that gets up to 50 knots. The day of the registration the wind was blowing up to 40 knots and I was powered on a 4.5m RPM which I could borrow from Natural High for this event.

I was super happy that I managed to become 4th in the single elimination, the conditions were really rough and it was hard to land good tricks.

Unfortunately, in the double elimination I lost my heat so I ended up 5th at the world cup in France. It was a good experience to compete in wind that is so strong and gusty and I will definitely come back next year. At the moment I’m in Egypt, training for the next tourstop. With a perfect kitespot at the BigDayz.com station at Soma Bay and an amazing cable park at El Gouna this is the place to be! www.elgounacable.com

KiteSista Meets: Annelous Lammerts

Whilst in Morocco last month we met a lovely girl over dinner the first night we arrived. Neither of us knew each other but she was just one of those people who is instantly warm, friendly and gives you a really positive feeling when talking to them.

So, as is customary, before we went to bed we asked her what her name was, to which she replied Annelous.

To those of you who were not as quick as us at putting two and two together, Annelous Lammerts is one of the top female riders on the PKRA circuit and one of only a very small group able at the moment to challenge the dominance of Gisela, Bruna and Karolina, yet as we spent the next 12 days with her throughout the PKRA stage in Dakhla we learn’t that she is also a shining example of character in our sport. Hard working, humble and happy.

So, now it is our great pleasure to introduce you to Annelous Lammerts.

KSm: Hi Annelous, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Can you tell our readers a little bit more about you? 

Annelous: I’m 20 years old and living in the south-west of The Netherlands. My homespot is the Brouwersdam where I started kiteboarding 4 years ago. When I’m at home I’m working in the kiteshop Natural High where I started working 3 years ago. The past 3 winters I have been travelling to warm kite destinations and in summer I work and travel around for the competitions….
