    2019 GKA KITE WORLD TOUR CHAMPIONS CROWNED

    1). GKA Freestyle World Cup - Cumbuco, Brazil

     

    Mikaili Sol had already done enough to seal her third world Freestyle title before the last event, but on Saturday the 15-year-old managed to overcome Bruna Kajiya, Rita Arnaus and Pippa van Iersel in the ultimate final of the season on home soil. Of course who could forget that just a week earlier she had also won her first Kite-Surf strapless event at the first time of asking in Prea?! A rare talent the Brazilian surely is.

     

    Here’s how the final championship podiums stand at the end of the 2019 season:
