IT IS ON!! In 2018 the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour will take the stage in Cabarete for the official return of a world kiteboarding event in the Dominican Republic. The Cabarete Kite Festival is a 7-day festival celebrating watersports, ocean awareness, and entrepreneurship. It’ll be filled with kiteboarding, networking, surf sessions, sunset music on the beach, and oh did we mention epic kiteboarding?
This new tour format is designed to put the wow factor and spectators’ enjoyment at the heart of the action. Wild and dynamic performances will take the best of all aspects of twin-tip freestyle kiteboarding and at the end of the season World Champions will be crowned: let the Air Games begin!
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 will come down to each rider’s interpretation and how they want to display their vision of where an all-round show of explosive riding can go in the given conditions.
