The 2019 Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational was huge! The worlds best wakestyle kiteboarders battled it out their share of the over $70,000 prize purse with equal prize money for men and women. We had musical guests Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys, DJ QBert, Future Fambo, Mystic Vibrations, The Dubplates & The Roots as well as the Send It Movie Premiere Party. The competition ran on the Wind Voyager Super Kicker, Core Kiteboarding Reverse Rainbow, KOA Resorts Kicker, Liquid Force Kites Rooftop, and Phocus Mega Slider.

Competition started off with perfect South West wind in the REAL Slick. On day two the wind went North and the world class Water Patrol at REAL Watersports moved the sliders into the perfect position for the changing conditions. Finals day showed up after a lay day with another round of classic South West conditions. The competition was tight and in the end technical slider riding and mega kicker hits took top scores. All the riders in the final threw down but after the numbers were tabulated, checked and rechecked, here are the winners of the 2019 Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational. The World Is Not Ready…

Congratulations to Sensi Graves for winning the Slickstyle Attitude Award! When her teammate got his kite tangled with another rider Sensi sprang into action. She kited out to him with a fresh kite and bar just in time for him to get his final hit on the Core Kiteboarding Reverse Rainbow. That is true slickstyle attitude.
