The continuing development of professional kitesurfing competition around the world provides an excellent platform for the best athletes in kitesurfing to drive the sport forward into the future.
The GKA was formed by kitesurfing’s biggest brands to help facilitate the successful continued development of kitesurfing, in terms of elite level riding, as well as through improved safety and access.
In this transitional period for world kitesurfing events, regardless of any other contests in the year, the GKA aims to support the delivery of several established events via a ‘Grand Slam Series’.
One rider will be crowned ‘GKA Rider of the Year’ at the end of the season – in ‘Wave and Strapless Freestyle’, but also in ‘Freestyle’.
The Wave and Strapless Freestyle Tour series kicks off with the first Grand Slam event: the Tarifa Strapless Pro 2016 from the 29th June – 3rd July.
