IKA approves European Freestyle Championship Series

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Kite Tour EuropeFor 2010, the International Kiteboarding Class Association (IKA) announces the first official European Championships in Freestyle Kiteboarding.
 
A tour of five events will determine the best European Kiteboarder in the thrilling discipline of freestyle. Each individual event will also offer kiteboard racing with ranking points counting towards the IKA world ranking to cover two of the most attractive disciplines.

For 2010, the tour starts with stages in Austria, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and at least one more country, and will have a total Price Money of more than 60.000€.
 
“Due to the fact that the tour will be hosted by existing and well introduced events such as Surf Cup Podersdorf, Kiteboard Open in Nordweijk and Kitesurf WorldCup Sylt, the Kitesurf Tour Europe attracts more than 250.000 spectators and ensures extensive European Media-Coverage via national identification by the media. For the riders, the series offers a great opportunity to compete in a professional set up without major travel expenses”, states Thilo Trefz, CEO of Brand Guides.

Brand Guides, the operator of this first european tour, is an Hamburg/Germany based agency specialized in lifestyle and extreme sports and founder of the german kiteboarding championship series, the Kitesurf Trophy (www.kitesurf-trophy.de) which is held with 39 events since 2002.
 
“It`s a great step to present kiteboarding to the european audience at the most beautiful and popular beaches of Europe. We are happy to utilize Brand Guides` nine year expertise in running high level kiteboarding events for the execution of the Kitesurf Tour Europe”, Markus Schwendtner, Executive Secretary of the IKA added.
 
The web Site www.kitesurftour.eu will show the most recent details about the tour, and will be updated on a regular base.
