Yet again this morning there's a wind line on the horizon to the north as the El Norte winds begin to fill in for the sixth day in a row for the the last day of the Lord Of The Wind here in Los Barrilles. Yesterday saw Kevin Pritchard stomp the kiters in the winner take all Lord Of The Wind windsurfer v. kiter race taking home $3,500 for his effort. The Shadowbox crew finished the Kite Big Air heat with the highest jump 34.6 feet. Complete event results to come.
A big shout out to the event organizers Dan and Chris! This is their inaugural event and its been one of the best events that the EpicSessions.tv crew has been involved in. Its not easy to pull off video streaming on the beach here in Mexico but with the dedicated crew working with us for our connection, power, and literally anything else that we needed, we made it work with minimal issues.
Super special thanks to Chucky VanWormer who not only put up the bulk of the prize money, but also housed the entire EpicSessions.tv and Shadowbox crew at his resort. If you want an amazing experience in Baja, then stay at Chucky's resort. Its awesome.
Today will be full on kite/windsurf expression sessions provided we have the winds. Keep an eye on the EpicSessions.tv facebook page and/or the EpicSessions.tv livestream page.
We can't wait to come back to Los Barrilles next year!

Today is day two of the Lord Of The Wind Kite/Wind event in Los Barrilles Mexico. Yesterday saw raging winds for the windsurfing freestyle, the kite big air and wind/kite slalom. The mens' kiting slalom was amazing with some super close finishes and carnage on the course. The livestreaming started at 10:30am and went until 5:30pm with full day one coverage. We're doing the best we can with the limited internet speeds at the beach - and some glitches happen and we appreciate your patience as we push out our signal from south of the border.
Today will be filled with kite and wind slalom and early reports from the kite big air event have the top jumps around 35 feet! We should begin streaming around 10am MST.
You can view the livestream here. Just click on the image and the stream will fire up. Join in on the chat and enjoy the action!
If you are here at the event, please stop by our tent. We're together with the crew from Shadowbox just to the north of the center stage.
