KTA News:HONG KONG AND TAIWAN JOIN THE KTA RACE CENTER PROJECT

Written by KTA on . Posted in News

hk_race_starts_trainingGreat news for the KTA Race Center Project as we welcome onboard two new Centers this month. Both Hong Kong and Taiwan will be opening their doors for business and giving local riders the opportunity to get to grips with the new Olympic Kiteboard Class.

Time to switch from TT to RB and spend the summer sharping your skills to take on the next KTA season.

In Hong Kong things will be led by Ho Chi Ho and Jay Chau both instructors and racers on the KTA circuit, with Ho Chi Ho also hailing from an Olympic windsurf background which we hope will help smooth the transition for more windsurfers in the future.  The Hong Kong KTA Race Center will be hosted by Kitesurf4ever and be based between Shui Hau Wan and Dapeng Wan depending on the time of year and wind directions.

Over in Taiwan things will be based at the Waterman Kitesurfing Center at Neipi Beach with Chen Chien Wen AKA Rai heading things up on the training front. It’s great to the new surge of interest from the Taiwan riders for course racing and we look forward to seeing students of Rai’s making their mark on next season’s competitions.
