The Kiteboard Slalom World Championship is set to take place from June 26 to July 1 in Sylt, Germany, where high performance will meet with high expectations and awesome jumps, dizzying races and pulsating slalom rides will be witnessed. Who becomes the World Champion in Slalom and who will be the rising star in Freestyle and Race?

Standing out as a favored destination by competitors and spectators alike, the 'Brandenburger Strand' in Sylt, Germany becomes a lift of activity once the kiteboarders arrive, drawing last year close to 100,000 visitors and packing the beach with lots of entertainment and varied exhibitions of sport innovation products.

Over 90 kitesurfers from 20 countries are pre-registered to the spectacular competition in freestyle, slaloming and course races to win €20,000.

Beginning on 26 June and running until 1 July, Sylt will provide freestyle, race and slalom riders the opportunity to showcase their skills in one of the best places on the North Sea Islands - looking to claim the World Champion title in Slalom and important points for the European Championship in Freestyle and Course Race.

The German fleet are ready to defend home waters. Freestyler Mario Rodwald (21, Rendsburg) and winner of the first tour stop in Austria is looking forward to compete in Sylt as well as racer woman Christine Bönniger (25, Kiel), second in Austria and Florian Gruber (19, Garmisch-Partenkirchen).

They will have a hard time against Bruno Sroka (36, Brest) and French Shooting star Maxime Nocher (17, Cagnes sur Mer).

With big waves, scenic surroundings and some of the best kiting conditions in Europe it is no wonder so many professional kiteboarders call this place the European Hawaii. Kitesurf World Cup website
