    Are You Affected by Beach Access Issues for Kitesurfing?


    Calling all affected beach users and representatives

    Keeping public beaches open for kitesurfing and other watersports, ensuring they operate in harmony with nature and public safety, is one of the main goals of the Global Kitesports Association.


    At the GKA we work towards sustainable solutions in order to protect what we love; bringing together local watersports communities, associations, lawmakers and key stakeholders. The GKA is at the forefront of international political decisions with regard to beach access, pushing for results where public safety and the local environment are concerned, while keeping beach access secure for the sport of kitesurfing for years to come.


    As the most influential association in kitesports worldwide, the GKA is currently collecting data on pending worldwide beach access decisions, to compile a database and network hub for involved parties.


    If you are:

    • affected by a decision to close beaches or restrict access to a beach for kitesurfing in your area;
    • a spokesperson or member of an association dealing with restricted beach access or the closing of beaches for kitesurfing;
    • a spokesperson or member of a national watersports federation and have information on beach access cases in your country/area;

    then we would like to hear from you!


    Please send information about your case to [email protected] and we will contact you.
