African Kiteboarding Championships: 8-10 March in Dakhla

The first professional pan-African competition in kiteboarding

The Global Kitesports Association is pleased to announce a very special event: the first African Kiteboarding Championships, taking place in Dakhla, Morocco from 8 – 10th March 2019, in partnership with Dakhla Attitude.

Marking the very first professional pan-African competition ever staged in kiteboarding, the championships are also the first freestyle kiteboarding competition under the new leadership of the GKA. This will also be the first event run under the new GKA freestyle rulebook.

Riders who compete in the African Kiteboarding Championships are not only battling it out to be the 2019 African Champion, but as this is a qualifier event for the GKA African Kite Freestyle World Cup event in Dakhla, which takes place in June 2019, the top four male and the top four female riders will automatically qualify to compete in the GKA Freestyle World Cup event in Dakhla.

Calling all riders:

The African Kiteboarding Championships event is open to freestyle riders from all African nations: female and male, fourteen years of age and older. Participants must be citizens of an African nation.
