It is the goal of the Global Kitesports Association (GKA) as representation of interests of the kitesports industry to support and promote the interests of all (professional) Kite riders.
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 kitesports 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.
