GKA Distance Battle
Competition is back! We catch up with Duotone’s freshly crowned 2020 GKA Distance Battle champions; Pedro Matos and Mika Sol. Lasse Walker gives us the run down of his podium performance at the Cold Hawaii games and we have three new videos for your viewing pleasure.
Pedro Matos takes home the gold at the first ever GKA Distance Battle putting on an incredible performance to take the win in the men’s strapless freestyle category. Somewhat of an underdog in strapless freestyle, Pedro has been putting in some serious training during the down time and with his smooth surf style and consistent flow, sailed through his heats to take out the win with an incredible 31.80 score. We spoke to Pedro to find out what went into his preparation for the event.
Mika Sol put on a display of power and style to comfortably take home the win at the GKA Distance Battle in the women’s twin-tip freestyle division. Incredibly Mika also secured second place in the women’s division of strapless freestyle! We caught up with this unstoppable force to find out how she prepared and what she’s been up to during lockdown.

Out In Winter
