Fehmarn, Germany: 24 – 28th August 2018

The fourth event on this new world tour will be in Fehmarn at the Mercedes-Benz Kitesurf World Cup, one of Europe’s biggest kiteboarding events.

Jesse Richman and Carlos Mario are locked in a tight battle at the top for the title, but several other riders are close behind and still in contention should one of these guys not make the finals!

In the women’s, Mikaili Sol has beaten Hannah Whiteley in two finals so leads the way, so her fate is in her own hands.

Prevailing winds

Prevailing southwesterly winds blow in from the right and can get pretty strong as the summer turns to autumn at the end of August.

Water conditions

Flat water on the inside, short chop on the outside and prevailing cross-offshore wind make this an ideal location for spectators with riders coming close in to the beach!     Fehmarn - GKA KBWT
