The competition was set from the 1st of September until the 29th of September , a 29 day period. You were allowed to travel anywhere in the world to find the strongest wind and the best conditions possible. Luckily for me I live in Cape Town so I did not have to travel very far.
The problem with Cape Town in September is that the predominant SE wind is very scarce due to the fact that our kiting season only usually starts around October. So it was very possible that even with living in Cape Town that I would have had to of ended up travelling, but luckily that was not the case once the 17th of September arrived.
On the 17th of September I had noticed quite a nice forecast that had built in Kommetjie, Witsand. I was not expecting it to come through strong enough to try and do any significant jumps, so I ended up going with my friend and he was going to practice a few jumps and I was going to wave ride. Unluckily for me after an hour of wave riding the wind decided to come through and it was absolutely nuking.
