The action continued right until the sun went down, with the levante wind blowing strong. We saw amazing riding from athletes, showing the crowds just how impressive this discipline is.

GKA Kite-Surf World Cup Torquay Australia 2018

This year the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour will visit Australia for the first time in December when the tour hits Point Danger in Torquay near Melbourne. Point Danger sits on a coastline steeped in wave riding legend and the nearby Bells Beach is a regular fixture on the WSL and has played host to some of the biggest moments in the history of professional surfing.

The event at Point Danger will be the final stop of the season on the KSWT where the Champions of the Kite-Surf World Tour 2018 will be crowned.
