    GKA Freestylers Set to Let Loose... Possibly Tomorrow, but certainly Wednesday & Thursday!

    The GKA Freestyle World Cup Leucate has chance to make a start on Tuesday with good winds also forecast for Wednesday and Thursday - the last two days of the event window!




    Up until now we've been chilling with the still, but there have been unusually big swells running in this corner of the Mediterranean which have not only provided great surf conditions, but also a large lagoon has formed on inside of the beach, right up close to the Leucate boardwalk!

    There is also some rain forecast for tomorrow, but will we find freestyle heaven for the first event of 2019 for the Freestyle discipline of The GKA Kite World Tour?


    Keep your fingers crossed when you go to bed tonight!
