Enter the GKA Distance Battle– Aluula All-Time Big Air! 🔥
The 2020 GKA Distance Battle was a huge success! We’re bringing it back in 2021 - and this time, we’re going for ALL-TIME by opening up the competition to amateurs and pros alike in a Big Air Distance Battle like no other!
The concept is simple: anyone can submit a video from ANY TIME. Have a trick you filmed in 2011? Submit the clip. Have you been filming for King of the Air? Submit the clip. Have a video you happened to catch of Jesse Richman on Maui back in the day? Submit the clip (just kidding, why would you submit Jesse’s clip, submit your own!).  
Video clips will be screened by our team of the GKA Kite World Tour judges and split into disciplines: Twintip Big Air, Strapless Big Air and Hydrofoil Big Air. Each submitted video will be analyzed and scored by the same criteria. The top 10 best videos of all time per discipline will be presented during the GKA studio show. 
We will be crowning THE BIG AIR CHAMPION OF ALL TIME! Don't miss your chance to enter. You have until May 20th to submit your clips. Winners will receive a portion of €5.000!!!

Prevailing winds

Cape Verde offers kitesurfing conditions for all levels with average winds of force four to five every day.

Water conditions

Find side-onshore wind and small wind waves on the windward, east side of the island. At Santa Maria on the south coast you'll find flatter water for freestyle. In the southwestern corner of the bay there is a wave spot for experienced riders with offshore wind. However, the real deal for experts is the pure world-class wave spot - Ponta Preta - which offers a very fast wave that can get huge with cross-offshore winds. It's special!

Competition history

The GKA Kite-Surf World Tour visited Cape Verde for the first time in 2018 where the season kicked off!
