EVENT RECAP: KIEBLER BROTHERS REPRESENT TOP YOUTH AT 2016 GERMAN KITESURF MASTERS
The first event of the 2016 German Kitesurf Masters was held on the German island of Sylt from May 11-16. The event consisted of a Slalom race, Freestyle, and Big Air event. Team Naish riders and brothers, Xaver Kiebler, 16, and Jakob Kiebler, 17, competed in all three events. Xaver came out victorious in the Slalom Race and fourth in Big Air with Jakob finishing in second in Freestyle.
Winning the Slalom race, the new format being adopted for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, is Xaver’s ultimate goal. After a series of perfect starts and fast riding on his Naish 14m Torch, Xaver was able to finish in first—one step closer to making it to the 2018 Olympics!

An ideal fit for foiling, the Trip’s responsive depower and light weight—compared to other kites of this size—supports seamless transitions for a smooth ride.
