The GKA Kite-Surf World Tour wraps up this week in Torquay, Victoria, with a packed five days of competition ahead of us on the reeling reef breaks of Danger Point. With consistent swell on tap, the event here in Torquay will be a wave-only event with potential for a mixed judging criteria with an 80% focus on wave and 20% strapless freestyle if conditions don’t quite line up for a pure wave competition.

Here’s a little refresher of the tour top tens after six events so far this season.
