IKF / KPWT Status Information

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Last week the newly formed IKF, which is closely related to KPWT, has published a press release, claiming to be the new governing body for kiteboarding. While the backgrounds of this formation are quite obvious, this changes nothing on the fact that the only world wide governing body for any kind of sailing, including kiteboarding, is the International Sailing Federation (ISAF), as such recognized by the International Olympic Committee.

The IKA as an ISAF international class is managing the affairs of the kiteboarding class, which makes another organisation unneccessary and divisive.

The International Kiteboarding Association is representing national kiteboarding associations from almost 20 countries world wide, covering 5 continents, of which each is recognized by their national government, olympic committee or sailing association. IKA has sanctioned world wide tours like PKRA as well as regional tours in Asia and Europe, all of them contributing towards the world wide unified rankings.
