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

As you travel north along the coast through Ceará state the stronger the winds gets. That’s certainly the case in Preá, where it blows seemingly non-stop, reaching at least 25 knots from the east or northeast (the left) in the afternoons from July all the way through the season until January. The wind is 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 close by that work better in the afternoons once the wind is up.

Competition history

This is the first GKA event in Preá.
