PKRA News:Registration at the PKRA/IKA Freestyle Jr\s

Written by PKRA on . Posted in News

The registration at the PKRA/IKA Kiteboarding Freestyle Junior World Championships took place at the camping La Ballena Alegre, San Pere Pescador, Costa Brava, Spain.  Costa Brava has been hosting events for many years, it is a great venue and a perfect place for the first Kiteboarding JR World Championships.  43 riders registered from 17 countries.  The thermal winds picked up to solid 15 knots all afternoon and many riders took advantage of the conditions to warm up.  A beautiful opening ceremony welcomed all the riders.

\"\"

The riders are from all over the world and are adapting to the local conditions.  The wind here is usually the strong Tramontane out of the north or the warm thermal from the south west.  This time of year the thermal is the dominant wind. The competition will have two classes of boys 8-14 and 15-16 and two classes of girls 8-13 and 14-16.  This means that 4 World titles will be given.  Only two kids under 11 registered so they will join the older class.

\"\"

Throughout the week the PKRA along with many pro’s like Gisela Pulido and Alvaro Onieva will be doing clinics to educate the young riders.  The goal of these clinics will be to teach up and coming riders how to compete, train, media relationships and sponsors.

\"\"

The level will be very high, especially in the 15-16 age group, with many competitors having already kited for many years.  The European champions are here to see if they can claim a World title.  The competition will start in the morning at 10:30am .  You can follow all the action on www.prokitetour.com and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
