On the weekend of 14/15 September, the first tour stop of the Dutch Nationals hit Scheveningen / the Hague. Scheveningen is very well know for its waves and challenging conditions. A perfect playground for the Dutch Nationals to show your skills!
The wind was around 25 knots for the event and waves were around 2 meters with almost no sun making it dark and cloudy. The summer has ended, and the windy season has begun.
Lisa was using her Wainman Hawaii Mr. Green and Joke to the for this competition. There was a strong field of girls (who also compete on the Kite Tour Europe) competing against Lisa who last year took the "best trick" award.
After the first day, Lisa placed 3rd after battling the waves and wind. The second day saw Lisa advancing to the final where the wind turned offshore and almost nothing was possible. But with a second place, the Dutch National Tour started with a good result and we wish Lisa all the best for the Next stop!
