The GKA Freestyle World Cup Gran Canaria 2019 Is Coming! It’s less than two weeks until the second GKA Freestyle World Cup fixture of 2019, in the high wind heaven of Gran Canaria from 12-16th June. The event will take place at Playa de Vargas – one of Gran Canaria’s windiest spots on the east coast of the island where, during the summer months, the wind can regularly ramp up to 30-40 knots.
With wind stats like that, we’re hoping for solid conditions for the GKA’s first ‘open format’ freestyle event of the season.
Head to the official event page to find out more and keep an eye on that page for live scores when the event kicks off.
