Working with the elements at a kite spot is never easy, add multiple locations worldwide to the equation and the difficulty rating will increase dramatically. Due to these factors and the wind gods testing our patience, the GKA Distance Battle has been bumped back one more week to give our athletes the fair chance they deserve to get the footage needed to enter the competition.

We can however announce the competition running program, the latest GKA Distance Battle teaser and heat elimination ladders for both the men’s and women’s strapless freestyle. The competition program goes as follows:
