We’re living through difficult times, with so many of us on a global COVID-19 lockdown, staying safe and healthy has become our primary concern, and checking the wind forecast has suddenly dropped right down on the list of priorities.
One beautiful thing emerging from the situation is the closeness and support that kitesurfers are showing each other around the world. The GKA athletes have been helping spread the #globalkitelove with messages of support, isolation tips and home workouts have been shared across our media platforms. Now we’d like to introduce the people that work behind the scenes here at the GKA and share some of their stories and how they are coping with life right now. In the coming weeks you’ll get to meet the GKA team, starting with the kitesurfing wellness women, Janne Vollert, Rasa Iselionyte and Kate Chandler. These ladies know how to keep you sane, fit and well fed in a crisis!
