There is a lot work and effort from a crew of people behind the scenes who are passionate about this sport and work hard throughout the year to make each event happen, and to bring you all of the content you get to enjoy each day. No one knows the struggle of running the GKA Kite World Tour better than our CEO @jorgenvogt, who spends countless hours ensuring that the Tour runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. We took some time to ask him about this thoughts from the 2019 season, and what we have to look forward to in 2020. Click the link in our bio to read the full article!

Preá is a three to four drive north of Fortaleza on the coastline of Ceará in northeastern Brazil. It’s a famously windy spot and it blows practically non-stop here during the season with pumping conditions pretty much on tap.

Prevailing winds

The further north you travel in Ceará the stronger the winds get and that’s certainly the case in Preá. It blows non-stop at at least 25 knots from the east or northeast (from the left) between July and January and is at its strongest from September to November.

Water conditions

Preá is a tidal spot with flat sections close to the beach, chop on the outside and a range of wave spots nearby that work better in the afternoons once the wind is up.

Competition history

The GKA has yet to visit Brazil but the first event is going down in November!
