Registration now open for the Youth Freestyle Tour © GKA Kite World Tour

The GKA is proud to host the Youth Freestyle and Kite-Surf World Tour. We're stoked to have confirmation for our first scheduled event in El Gouna, Egypt and registration is now open.

The purpose of the Youth Kite World Tour is to provide young competitors an arena to prove their skills through a series of international events. This enables them to get used to the competition formats and prepare them for the GKA Kite World Tour down the road.

The age groups that can participate are as follows:

  • U19 (born 1.1.2003 or younger)
  • U17 (born 1.1.2005 or younger)
  • U15 (born 1.1.2007 or younger)

The first planned event is the GKA Youth Freestyle World Cup Egypt, in El-Gouna happening from July 6th-10th. With warm, flat, shallow water this spot has previously played host to both Freestyle and Big-Air championships.
