PKRA Teneriffe kicks of with registration

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

More than 27 men and 12 women from 20 different nationalities made their way to Tenerife yesterday to register for the wave discipline as well as 18 men and 8 women for the freestyle discipline.

El Medano is home to the infamous Los Alisios trade wind. Los Alisios blows from a NE direction and provides upwards of 80% of the 300 (on average) rideable days in Tenerife each year. Due to local effects including wind acceleration zones, the wind in El Medano can be expected to be between 50 to 100% stronger than is forecast making this the perfect place for a world-class PKRA kiteboarding event.

An opening ceremony and cocktail party was held at the Hotel Playa Sur Tenerife to welcome all riders and crew as well as to introduce all the organizational personnel and supporters who made this event possible.

The mandatory skippers’ meeting is scheduled for 10:00am.
