Saturday evening in Dublin was an experience. Regarding the decision - so what. We started setting up such a wonderful sport in 2001 and it`s not a problem at all but a corner on our way. The Kitesurf Tour Europe is representing the most important continent in kitesurfing with the European Championship in Freestyle.

Our mission is to present kitesurfing as the fashion sport Nr 1 within metropolitan areas. About 600 registered riders in 5 events, close to 300.000 spectators and numerous minutes in major TV stations prooved this in 2012 and thus we are happy for the upcoming years with any decision taken in Dublin.

The Kitesurf Tour Europe wants to thank IKA and all the responsible persons wich made this sport a recognized momentum in the ISAF sailing world. It is our mission since 2001 to perform rider, visitor and media friendly events and we just keep going for 2013.
