In response to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, the Coupe du Monde Junior de Kitesurf and the GKA have decided to postpone the junior world kiteboard cup event in Saint Pierre-la-Mer (France) as a precaution.

Due to the current situation, we feel that this postponement is essential to reassure riders, parents of riders, coaches, and our various partners and sponsors, and to maintain the event’s festive and fair character.

The event, originally scheduled for April 2-5, 2020 will now be held on October 24-27, 2020.
