GKA Kiteboarding World Tour

THE GKA KITEBOARDING WORLD TOUR: (SCROLL DOWN FOR OVERALL RIDER RANKINGS)

THE ULTIMATE COMBINATION

In 2018 the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour staged a series of World Cup events that put the wow factor and spectators’ enjoyment at the heart of the action. Wild and dynamic performances took the best of all aspects of twin-tip freestyle kiteboarding and at the end of the season World Champions were crowned at an exciting high wind finale in Germany!

The essence of the tour is to find the most complete twin-tip rider out there, however the basis of each judging category primarily calls for as much height as possible. After that, the show comes down to each rider’s interpretation and how they want to display their vision for where an all-round show of explosive riding can go in the given conditions.

Watch the all-action promo below to get a full flavour!

 

THE CATEGORY BREAKDOWN:

Tricks are judged over three categories.

The categories:
Regular jumps (spins, grabs, board-offs – anything goes, as long as it’s high)
Kite loops
Handle-passes

Imagine Carlos Mario’s double handle-passes off big kickers in Cabarete mixed with Jesse Richman’s kite loop double half cabs. Picture the huge hang-time of Tom Hebert’s insanely high board-offs in front of thousands of people on the beach in Tarifa, up against the flow of Kevin Langeree’s massive inverted kite loop back rolls.

This tour brings together the world’s best riders to open all our eyes to what’s possible when inspiration from all corners of the twin-tip spectrum merge as one into Air Games.

Staged at some of the most iconic kiteboarding competition venues, classic kiteboarding conditions have ignited the imagination of people all over the world and at the same time inspired true kiteboarders, too:
