GKA Freestyle World Cup Fuerteventura 2019

Rene Egli and Melia Hotels at Sotavento have been playing host to some of the world’s top kiting and windsurfing events for 34 years now! This summer  the GKA Freestyle World Cup Fuerteventura will take place from 19 – 24th July. The pumping, cross-offshore winds can blow up to 40 knots during the season so it’s a prime spot for some Big-Air action. It’s also a spectator-friendly location with a viewing gallery right on the shoreline and epic parties by night at in the World Cup Tent, simply known as La Carpa!

Prevailing winds

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. 

Water conditions

Fuerteventura is littered with some truly World Class wave spots but you'll find no surf in Sotavento. There's flat water on the inside and short chop a little further out which makes for perfect take-off ramps for the riders.

Competition history

This year will be the fourth time a GKA Kite World Cup is organized at Sotavento
