This will be the GKA’s first visit to Gran Canaria! 

Situated on the east coast of Gran Canara, there are consistent wind and wave conditions at Playa de Vargas, one of Gran Canaria’s windiest kiting spots! In summertime we can be looking at 30 – 40 knots, which is why we’re looking forward to the first ‘open format’ freestyle event of the year – The GKA Freestyle World Cup Gran Canaria 2019.

Get ready for Vargas!
