PKRA Cabarete called off

The Dominican Republic Cabarete event, has been has being a classic PKRA World Tour event over the last 7 years. This great location know as the Caribbean Kiteboarding Mecca, has hosted many years the highest standard Kiteboarding event in the world where the absolute best in the world have competed.

Unfortunately in 2009 the economic world crisis has hit the Dominican Republic very hard and the event this year is not able to support the High Standards of the PKRA World Tour. Over the last few weeks the event organizer, the rider’s committee and the PKRA managing body have being discussing, different options to deal with the crisis and adjust the event to the current economic situation.

However the options have not being feasible since they would greatly compromise the high standards of the PKRA World Tour establish by the best riders in the world, and make the event something far away from a World Championship event. Therefore the decision was to call off the 2009 event, and wait for better times and organize the official “Cabarete World Cup” as a high standard kiteboarding event in 2010.

The next official PKRA event will be the Course Racing event at the Portimao Kite Masters, and the next official freetyle PKRA event of the year will be the Fuerteventura PKRA Kiteboarding Grand Slam 2009. Notice of race coming soon. 100% confirmed.
