The minutes of the recent Annual General Meeting of the class, held 5th of December in Paris, have been published on the class website. You can find them in the About -> Minutes section.
The International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) announced today, that following a decision of the IKA Executive Committee, the PKRA Freestyle Tour will exclusively lead towards the 2010 Freestyle World Title.
This is following discussions about a clear structure in world wide freestyle competition kiteboarding. Thus the PKRA tour is awarding the Freestyle World Championship Title in 2010, while the continental titles for Asia and Europe are awarded through the Asian and European Continental Tours.
We regret that KPWT and IKF have chosen to divide the international kiteboarding community by going their way separate from IKA and ISAF.
To protect the interests of our national members as well as the thousands of competition kiteboarders they represent, we will have to request ISAF to impose Regulation 19 (Starting Eligibility) on any competitor taking part in any future IKF / KPWT event or in events of their affiliated partners from 2010 on.This means, that all such competitors loose their starting eligibility for official IKA/ISAF sanctioned events, this includes the PKRA tour as well as the continental european and asian tours, and national championships.
