The Formula Kite class is a high performance hydrofoiling class using regulated series registered production equipment freely available.
For Regional Games and a possible inclusion in the Olympic Games, one hydrofoil model and one kite model will be selected for a plain level playing field and to avoid an arms race.
The KiteFoil class is a full development class with minimal equipment limitation, allowing brands to test the latest equipment on the market.
The GoldCup tour is the sports premium event series with events all around the world and a strong focus on media production and prize money level.
The Expression Disciplines currently include Freestyle, Big Air, Wave Riding, Strapless Freestyle and Park. Competition is judged on difficulty and execution rather than "first past the post".
The future governance of the world tour / world championships is currently under discussion between World Sailing, IKA, and the Kiteboarding Industry.
Kiteboarding has been included in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games with a boardercross event on IKA TwinTip:Racing equipment, for boys and girls under 18.
Have a look here to learn more about equipment limitations, formats and qualification opportunities.
The IKA continues to campaign for an inclusion of kiteboarding in the 2020 Tokyo Games and several Regional Games on One Design Kitefoiling Equipment.
The Formula Kite class is the only afforadable solution for emerging and developing nations to compete in high performance classes and ticks all boxes of the IOC requirements, especially for youth and media appeal.
Thunder, lightening and monsoon rain !!
Seems the weather is letting us know that the seasons are about to change and the summer is looming. Its time for just a touch of uncertainty down at the beach, will you get a session or won’t you?
Its a tough one we know…..
Plus the KTA 13/14 Session has already drawn to a close, so you know how well you ranked, but what to do about it all until next season? How to step up to the next level to challenge the likes of Estefania, Ken, Dylan, Yo, and Kelly to those podium spots – basically if there’s no blow there where do you go?
Answer in one the KITE CABLE THAILAND
The KTA’s most recent venture which has taken us off the sea and onto one very lovely lake over in Prnaburi, which is home of course to many a successful KTA Asia Tour round also. The Kite Cable Thailand though is not your normal wake park package as this system has been designed to mimic the feel and pull of a kite, to give you the pop and power you need to dial those new moves and find real air time on no wind days.
The Kite Cable harmonises kite and wake riding on state of the art two tower cables that maximise your water time, so straight away that equals way more fun. The Kite Cable Thailand also boasts a growing range of features for those riders who need their obstacle fix as well as being perfect for first time board riders with its controllable speed rate giving everyone the perfect learning conditions every ride.
So forget those off season blues and jump on a bike, a bus or a plane and head over to Pranburi to check it all out. You can even stay right there at the Kite Cable at one of the waterside chalets and chill out n the evening at the cables island bar. Plus when the wind does blow the beach is only 10 mins away so you can jump straight back on your kite and see how much your Kite Cable training has boosted your level.
