Since 2008, kiteboarders from all over the planet have assembled their best footage to submit for the Wind Voyager Triple-S Wildcard Video Contest. Each year, the best wakestyle riders scour their hard drives for the “A+” clips, then hit the water and session their brains out to stack a few last-minute tricks into the edit. Standout riders from kite spots all over the world hold nothing back, showcasing their talent on a wide variety of kicker and slider features. The results are nothing short of mind-blowing, an incredible snapshot of the wakestyle kiteboarding scene.
Want to compete in the 2017 Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational? There are two ways between now and the start of the event that ANYONE in the world can claim the remaining 6 spots in the event: The Wind Voyager Wildcard Video Contest and the Wind Voyager Triple-S Open. From both of these contests, two men and one woman will advance into the 2017 Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational.
Wind Voyager Triple-S Wildcard Video submissions should be no longer than 3 minutes long and will be judged solely on riding – not lifestyle or editing. With the 100% Kiteboarding Slider Park format for the 2017 event, kiteboarding on sliders and kickers should be the focus of your video content.
