How to compete in a World Cup

Dear rider,

please note that the spots in all Kite disciplines are limited and that new riders have to qualify to enter a World Cup. If you want to compete in a GKA event, please follow these steps:


  1. Check the current World Tour Calendar at Events – GKA Kite World Tour and choose an event you would like to compete in.
  2. Wait until pre-registration for the event opens. Normally pre-registration opens 10 weeks before the event and closes 4 weeks later.
  3. As soon as the pre-registration is open, you can register through the GKA Rider’s App. Please open a user account at GKA RidersAPP ( by clicking on “register a new membership”. Afterward you can login to your account with your email address and your password, choose your favourite event and press the “register”-button. To complete your registration, you must upload 4 videos showing 4 different tricks. Videos must not be edited and please not in POV (point of view) mode.


As soon as pre-registration is closed, you will be informed by email if you got a spot for the event or not. If you didn’t get a spot, do not get discouraged and try again!

If you got a spot, please follow the further steps described in the email and note that it’s mandatory for all riders to pay the entrance fee, to hold a valid GKA membership and to sign the consent form.

Last but not least: Don’t forget to read the Race Notice and the GKA Rulebook very carefully! You can find the links for these on the event webpages.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at GKA Kite World Tour very soon. If you have any further questions, please contact
