2016 World Snowkite Contest

Last weekend a select group of 40 kite-board athletes were selected to DEFY gravity, soaring across the snow capped mountains of Altosandro, Italy at the LifeProof sponsored World Snowkite Contest.

The vast mountain top offered endless opportunities to rack up points by: laying down tricks, hitting max speeds, maximising the total distance covered and changes in altitude. The competition was fierce and the teams did well to last the full weekend in the extreme weather.
