To achieve this goal, the GKA advocates that kiting as a sport can be done in all countries in harmony with nature. This includes the feasibility of professional kiting-competitions on beaches that are suitable for this purpose.
It is the goal of GKA to work together with all national associations of kiting as well as with the organizations of professional kite sports.
Further, the Kite sport industry aims to provide reliable information about market developments and to provide riders with a platform to achieve the goals of GKA.
Finally, the GKA has also set the goal of making kite surfing even safer through the development and implementation of safety-standards.
The GKA Wave & Strapless Tour will see a mix of freestyle and wave events over the next several months, eventually resulting in the crowning of a GKA Wave & Strapless Freestyle Rider of the Year. The first round was the Tarifa Strapless Kitesurfing Pro in June.
