KTA News:Boracay Scores Final Round

Written by KTA on . Posted in News

Its official the KTA Philippines Boracay Extreme has become the final tour round for the 13/14 KTA season.

Unfortunately political unrest over in Bangkok for the past couple of months has had a crushing impact on Thailand’s tourism trade, reducing travelers there by more than 50%. Sadly with the KTA’s sponsors being a hotel business consortium for the Pranburi event, they have felt the impact directly and along with the local government are no longer able to provide the support for the KTA competition.

This decision came to the KTA yesterday (Feb 12th) and immediate action  has been taken to bring this seasons Asia Tour to its final conclusion with the KTA Philippines next week.

The KTA Philippines is being presented by long time tour support and sponsors the Blue Orange Ville and hosted once again by ardent local champions of the KTA, Aqua Boracay by Yoo. The completion will therefore take place from the 19-23 Feb at the beautiful beach front location of Aqua Boracay, where we anticipate a high rider registration and some very high quality race and freestyle action in the week to follow.

There will be USD 15,000 worth of prizes up for grabs courtesy of tour sponsors Cabrinha along with the KTA Asian Tour Championship awards for the top riders of the season.

Boracay is packed at the moment we are told with riders from around the world waiting for the KTA to kick off. So a dynamic finale to the 13/14 season can be expected as the world’s pro-riders take on Asia best, be sure then to be grabbing your front row seat at Bulabog beach each day.

Also, as has become the style for the KTA this season, the team is offering a full range of kiteboarding opportunities in addition to the competition itself. The KTA Kite Kids will be kicking off its busy event schedule from the 17th Feb in a week that sees  power kiting, kitesurf beginners courses, race and freestyle coaching, plus the return for the second year of the KTA Kids TT Race to top it all off.

Plus we have an all-time first for the KTA with the Asian Movie Premier of WITH A KITE!

With a Kite is a full length documentary following the lives and lifestyle of some of the world’s top pro-kiters via the infamous Triple S in America. The premier is being screen at the Kasbah Restos on White Beach with free popcorn on tap to add that extra movie theatre feel to the experience.

Plus don’t forget its Boracay, so that has to mean just one or two parties unfolding as the event progresses.

So plenty to come from the KTA Philippines –  see you there!!
