#GKADistanceBattle update‼️
Working with the elements at a kite spot is never easy, add multiple locations worldwide to the equation and the difficulty rating will increase dramatically. Due to these factors and the wind gods testing our patience, the GKA Distance Battle has been bumped back one more week to give our athletes the fair chance they deserve to get the footage needed to enter the competition.
We can however announce the competition running program, the latest GKA Distance Battle teaser and heat elimination ladders for both the men’s and women’s strapless freestyle. The competition program goes as follows:

GKA Freestyle World Cup Cumbuco 2019

This freestyle final of the year will be held at Cumbuco, with its golden beaches, perfect wind conditions, and buzzing atmosphere – all of which add together to make it one of kiteboarding’s most famous destinations.

2,800 hours of sunshine per year also don’t hurt and there’s a reason why so many of the world’s top freestyle competitors head to Cumbuco to train every season.
