29th June, Valdevaqueros, Tarifa, Spain 


Today is the first day of the first stop on the GKA's brand new Wave & Strapless Freestyle World Tour that begins with the Tarifa Strapless Kitesurfing Pro 2016. 


24 riders will contest the main event from tomorrow while today 16 riders compete in a trials format that will see 12 riders progress into the main event. 


Valdevaqueros setup

Judges for this exciting new tour format are looking for a show from the riders. Technicality, risk and overall impression will all contribute to the rider's final score. We hope to see huge levels of progression and variety in this event. 


The official opening ceremony takes place tonight at the Wet Cafe and we will announce the riders who will compete for the main event title later this evening.
