When the wind switched on in the afternoon on Day 3 of the Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational, competitors were quick to rig their kites and enter the water for some action in the REAL Slider Park. With some of the world’s best photographers on hand to capture all the action, riders were going huge with massive kicker hits and steezy slides and presses on the sliders. The wind conditions were challenging as competitors launched their kites on southwest wind and only an hour later found themselves riding in northwest wind as several sizeable storms passed by only a few miles from the contest site.
The wind began fading as the skies cleared up, and competitors cruised back to land jamming to the reggae and dance tracks laid down by DJ Chela in the Red Bull MXT DJ Truck. As the sun set the Wind Voyager Triple-S kicked off another evening of awesome live music on the waterfront stage featuring rock/reggae artists The Reef.
