Moments: Teaching Kids to Kite in Cabo Verde with the Pros

GKA Cape Verde kids lessons video

INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION IN CABO VERDE

Cabo Verde is one of the most famous kitesurfing destinations in the world, and the home to each GKA Kite-Surf World Tour Men’s champion since the GKA began.

During #GKACaboVerde 2019, riders visited the local school in Santa Maria and taught kids the basics of kitesurfing at Kite Beach. Kitesurfing helps focus the mind and can keep kids out of trouble and away from bad influences. Providing support and a chance to develop, it’s not just about kitesurfing; it’s about creating value and showing them there are possible future opportunities in the kitesurfing industry.
