Osaïa Reding, Mojácar’s best-known kiteboarder, has for the third consecutive time revalidated her title as world Kitesurf junior champion in the Freestyle Sub 19 category, celebrated in Tarifa. With the recently won title of Champion of France under her belt, Osaïa once again faced the best riders in the world in the Cádiz town of Tarifa, where this time she won the well-deserved world title. Now only 17 years of age, she has picked up nearly all the existing national and international titles. On her return home to Mojácar, Osaïa signed the municipality’s book of honour, in which she wanted to express her gratitude to Mojácar Council for the support received throughout her sporting career. For next year she is now preparing for the championship of Spain. Training starts right away. Also on the near horizon there are the Paris Olympics and her dream of being able to represent Spain.
