    GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2018 - Le Morne / Mauritius In 2016, Matchu Lopes won the event in Mauritius, putting himself in contention for the World Title which he went on to win that year. Last year, Keahi de Aboitiz stormed to victory in the men’s division while Moona Whyte (his girlfriend) won the women’s division. Le Morne, and particularly One Eye, has been frequented by World Tour wave events for a long time now and the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour has visited the spot twice. One of the most picture-perfect wave spots on the planet. Le Morne has three world class waves and is home to one of the most hallowed wave spots in the world – One Eye. It’s been the site of a couple of big tour upsets since the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour first visited back in 2016. That first year, Airton’s unexpected loss to local rider Jeremy Chan left room for Matchu Lopes to make a push and win the event before stealing a tour win from under his friend’s nose at the next (and final) event in Dakhla. In 2017, Airton was denied a clean sweep on the way to his GKA World Title as well when he was knocked out in the semi-finals by Sebastian Ribeiro before Keahi de Aboitiz went on to take the win.

    This year will be the third time the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour has visited Sotavento. Airton Cozzolino rules the skies in Sotavento and remains undefeated there! Around 80% of the time the wind blows cross-offshore in Sotavento and it's at its strongest from May - September. In the high-season (July and August) the wind can ratchet up to 40 knots, so you can expect a real show here if the event coincides with a properly windy week. The conditions play right into the hands of some of the tour's most powerful riders such as Airton Cozzolino, Paulino Pereira and Gustavo Arrojo and the Big-Air comps are always something to behold! Conditions can be challenging though, and that underlines the skill of the riders when they're competing here. It’s also a spectator-friendly location with a viewing gallery right on the shoreline and epic parties by night at La Carpa

    GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2018 - Viana Do Costello / Portugal The stunning city of Viana do Castelo forms the backdrop just a few kilometres away from this brand new spot on the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour. There’s a variety of conditions on offer in summer time, but whatever comes, the competitors are going to be competing at one of the most impressive and open beaches we’ll see this year! Prevailing cross-shore wind from the right. Thermal winds are increased when the wind is from the north and the temperature's right in the summer. Clean flat water in the shelter of the port, with good wave and surf conditions when there's swell. In the summer expect a fun sized swell rather than more serious winter conditions. The natural horseshoe shape of the bay also means that the wind conditions are safe for all levels of rider.
  4. GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2018 - Tarifa / Spain

    until
    The original home of the Tarifa Strapless Pro event now enters its fourth year of competition and stages round four of the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour 2018. Formidably strong winds mix with a vibrant and energetic Andalucian crowd, all frothing at the next level tricks that are regularly stomped close in to shore. If it’s an electric ‘football stadium’ style atmosphere and huge levels of fun you’re after, come join us for this one! The kitesurfing capital of Europe has grown in immense popularity after it became a popular windsurfing hub in the 1980s. Having retained its old world charm, it's the infamous Levante and Poniente winds that really entertain all the wind seekers. The Levante blown from the land, cross offshore from the left and can be strong, up to 40 knots and often blows for five days straight. The Poniente is the more mellow wind, cross onshore from the right. It's cooler and more frequent in summer and can blow between 15 - 25 knots for a two or three days in a row. This event has often seen both winds create intense competition conditions! Although Tarifa can get good wave conditions in the winter months, in the summer, expect wind chop that provides superb ramps for the strapless freestylers to boost off. Landings can be tricky in the gustier, stronger Levante winds and choppy waters, but it's all part of the game in separating the best from the rest! This is the fourth year of the Tarifa Strapless Pro and you can expect a top turnout of both riders and fans! Previous winners Airton Cozzolino remains unbeaten!
