GKA RIDER OF THE YEAR 2016 COMPETITION LINE-UP 

WAVE AND FREESTYLE 

 

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. 

 

Regardless of any other contests in the year, the GKA aims to support the delivery of the following list of established events in order to achieve a continuing high calibre of competition for kitesurfing's top professional riders, and to reward them after their efforts at the end of the season.  

 

In upstanding support of the excellent long-running event organisers who have helped develop world class international kiteboarding competition over several seasons, the GKA have announced the following events to count towards the GKA Rider of the Year Award. 

 

As members of the GKA, kitesurfing brands have voted to show support for these long-standing and dedicated event organisers, and will encourage their team riders to put a high emphasis on attending these select events, in their bid to become the GKA Rider of the Year.
