The moment you have all been waiting for is finally here, and no, we are not referring to the weekend or any upcoming holiday that brings a twinkle to your eyes. We are talking about one of the greatest kite events since the dawn of mankind. While there are many great kiteboarding locations around the globe, perhaps one of the most historical and elusive is that of Hood River, Oregon, the birthplace of park riding and the pinnacle force that sustains its continuation. 

This year the Kite Park League is proud to announce a new partnership with THE QATAR AIRWAYS GKA KITE WORLD TOUR to present THE QATAR AIRWAYS GKA KITE PARK LEAGUE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2024. 

The event will be held from August 3rd - 10th and will crown this years QATAR AIRWAYS GKA KITE PARK WORLD CHAMPIONS 2024 in both men’s and women’s divisions. Without question, this will be a week to remember. 

Stay Tuned and be ready.

Prevailing winds

The wind directions that are most common in the area are onshore winds blowing in from the Mediterranean, called Marin, or offshore winds coming down from the mountains, called Tramontane.

Water conditions

If Marin winds prevail, the competition will be held on the lake Pissevaches, and if the Tramontane blows the competition site will be on the Mediterranean coast in the ocean.

Competition history

This event was born from the history of the Junior European Cup Freestyle Kitesurfing which was the largest international youth event ever organized in terms of the number of participants. With 12 successful years under its belt, it was in 2016 that everything changed! Building on its success, the European competition became the Junior World Cup of Kitesurfing, giving it unprecedented international dimension. In its first four editions the event has experienced an unprecedented boom: nearly 80 participants at each competition, more than 20 nationalities and a global media impact!
